Ask a Psychiatrist and Get Answers to Mental Health Questions ASAP
I started to have the memories before I started therapy, and I have had symptoms of the memories being true all my life, so I do not think a therapist implanted them.
My therapist says that all the symptoms I have such as PTSD mean that something must have happened but not that the details of the memories are necessarily correct.
I was really wondering if there was any way of knowing by my feelings if the memories were real or not.
For example if I have flashbacks and feel exactly as I did during the abuse does that mean they are real?
Or is there anything that might indicate they are real?
