Recently started tackling my abusuve childhiod in therpay and a lot of memories have come back that i question the authenticity of everyday. Things that I already remembered were bad enough to get reactions of horrors from friends. But now I'm struggling coming to terms with the sheer amount of abuse I experienced and I'm reverting to denying it again. I don't know how to process this and allow myself to feel without breaking down. I buried my head in work for over a decade and naturally this last year and lockdowns took that away and now I'm barely able to make it through a day without crying let alone do my job. I'm currently off on sick leave due to my mental health. Therapy and making this breakthrough are proving so difficult and I'm struggling. Just looking for some advice on new intrusive memories. Is it memories or is my mind trying to fill in the blanks?
