can you recall any specific events? what about stuff like your birthdays or christmas? or is everything a hazy blur and you can't recall ****, other than fragmented random, maybe not even real memories you can't really place?

just trying to see something, lol

I mostly remember traumatic things and some other random snippets of smaller events tbh, but my memory is messed up.

i can only remember random snippets too, it's so bizzare. is your sense of time really weird too? e.g. months feel like weeks, years feel like months

Most of my memory is empty.. can remember specific events but not much. Specific events that I can remember are pretty hazy or short.

Yeah, but I think it's dissociation related because of my CPTSD, if you get what I mean? Do you get disorientated with the time issues? I do.

Perhaps, yeah. Idk if my medication would impact my memory or not, but I wouldn't be surprised. My other health issues probably do too, especially insomnia and anorexia.

I remember a good amount of it. Not much of the day to day stuff (although I do remember some) but events like birthdays, parties etc. Photos help to jog my memory too

I recall being on a Princess Trust course five years ago, some of those events that happened during that course still haunt me to this day. Seven years ago, I was a completely different man.
that doesn't sound fun :<

I remember not being in lockdown (ayyyyy). I can remember holidays I went on, specific things that happened in school, I can just about remember football results, I can remember that about 5 years ago all the old famous people seemed to be dying and Jeremy Clarkson got fired for punching a producer.
