Default Re: Primary vs Secondary Trauma / Childhood Missing Memories

Missing memories do not always mean sexual abuse. Severe physical and emotional abuse can cause the overwhelmed child to "block out" the memories or even dissociate. The result is selective amnesia.
Good luck in your search. Recovering memories can go a long way in your healing process.
A selectively amnesiac survivor of physical & emotional abuse (lol)
