Great info. I certainly can relate to the surpressed memories. I appreciate this information very much. Thank you!

Thanks for choosing this topic to write about. Suddenly getting memories of forgotten events in your life can make you feel crazy for awhile.

For me, it was having a baby. What a roller coaster ride it has been since then! I am the founder and maintain The Blog Carnival Against Child Abuse. Thanks so much for joining us with this fine post for this month's edition.

Thank you all for your comments. It's always nice to know that something you have written has been found beneficial. I especially wanted to write about it because I have clients who, like Patricia writes, feel "crazy" when this happens to them. I wanted others to know that they are not crazy and that what is happening is what normal people do when they have been sexually abused.

I hope to write more about this subject in the future because I find that it is so prolific in our society and so important to speak up about it.

Thank you all for posting your feedback.

Great post. I've certainly fallen into many of these situations. I will never forget one day driving along on a gorgeous day with the windows open when the smell of a certain flower hit me with such force, I had to pull over for the triggered memories that followed. You just never know when a memory will be brought up.

Oh you are so right. And the sense of smell can bring the most powerful memories of all. I'm glad you were able to pull over. You also make a very good point about never knowing when they will occur. I think that is one of the most stressful things about them.

Thank you for your comments and for sharing with other survivors.
