The effect of fear, threat or states of intense stress on memory can result in intensified memory recollection, or it can result in fragmented or impaired memories.
It's not because my childhood was terrible, it was not perfect but most of the trauma that took place in my life was from 2012 and it has effected me with my memory going back well into my childhood.
The way I handled this was to try recover some of my life, so I asked a few people who I knew were part of my life at that time to help me remember events. I then went on to write a timeline of my life.
Struggling with memory loss including good memories puts a dull on your life's experiences and can be really difficult to cope with.
Do not allow this to stress you out even further. It is all part of the process. When your mind is ready to deal with it, and you are DEALING WITH YOUR TRAUMA, the memories will flood back to you like someone is reading you your life story and the imagination will flash pictures and it will all come back to you.
