Where Is The Erase Button To Our Brain?

Recommended Posts

Thank you for allowing me to join. Suffered multiple forms of abuse. The sexual abuse is the hardest. I am hoping there is a light at the end of the tunnel. Right now all I see is darkness. But the flashbacks light that tunnel with horrible visions. That is not the light I am trying to reach. Is there really any other light? A traumatic event recently has shaken loose all the things I have worked so hard to lock away.Is there an erase button to our minds? I am trying to find mine and can't. So therefor I am forced to live it all over again.

Hey, I'm new too and I know exactly how it feels to go one day almost not even knowing about it to having it suddenly all flood into your mind.. There isn't an erase button... But I think the best thing to do in situations like this, if you're ready enough, is to admit what went on and start the healing process. This site seems like a really supportive and safe place to be. Good luck with your healing.

Thank you. I am just unsure of alot of things. Second guessing myself for doing this. But then again it is my insecurities. Will I be accepted? Do I belong? Should I really be talking about this? I am sure the same things others ask. I will take it one step at a time. Good luck to you too

I think the only way to make it stop coming back is to deal with it completly and face it with patience and understanding that it wasnt our fault and that we are safe now, untouchable.

I wish the best for you. I know how difficult flashbacks n all can be.

take care,

:aswelcomesu: I have days like those all the time. As Rhea mentioned, we can't make what happened go away, but we can heal through support and helping ourselves to deal with the pain. This site has been so supportive and understanding of my situation. I'm sure in time you will feel the same. Welcome! :supportu::notalone::youcanheal:
