i'm just wondering if it's possible to completely forget the act of actual sexual abuse, especially if you were very young when it happened.
i have a lot of weird memories from about age 5-6 on... i distinctly remember one time my underwear were completely covered in blood, and my mom was shocked. i know i was embarassed, and i told her it was probably just mud or something. i remember taking baths and the soap stinging something "down there" so badly, like it was cut (that happened quite a few times). i always masterbated a lot, and i remember playing "doctor" with my neighbor, even going so far as putting his penis in my mouth. we lived in another city for a while and commuted back and forth to another house in the country, and i was always terrified of the country house for a reason i can't remember.
my dad used to be a social worker, and so i've always heard about signs of sexual abuse in children, but i never really thought about it until now. i've recently become sexually active and sometimes things just freak me out for reasons i'm not sure of. i know this is a really weird, tmi, off the wall question, but is it possible that i have been sexually abused and forgotten it happening?
