  • unsure of the past

    I'm not sure if this is the correct place to post something like this. If it isn't, please direct me to another website.
    Anyways, I have very few memories of my childhood. The ones I remember vividly are sexual, and took place at around age 5/6 (When I was in kindergarten). I am almost seventeen now, and I have a lot of mental health issues. Awhile back I told a friend about my concerns with my mental health (I have delusions, paranoia, believe there are people in my head, etc) without mentioning the sexual memories from my childhood. He confided in his mother, and they both thought it was possible that I was molested, which could explain me being sexual at such a young age. I don't know what I should do, because I worry constantly that I might have been molested by a family member or family friend. Should I bring this up with my therapist? Is there anything I can do to make myself remember my childhood? My mother speaks so fondly of all the lovely times we shared, and it hurts to not be able to recall almost any of them.
