    Hey @ellie2000 - trauma can certainly impact people's memories and it is possible that people forget things as a result. I'm by no means an expert on this, however my understanding is that these impacts can vary from person to person, but that it can be a part of the body/brain's defence mechanism to stop memories that may be very distressing. Is this something that you think you may be experiencing?

    It sounds really positive that you had a therapist who was very good @ellie2000.

    Would you like to tell us more about what you mean by if people put you down you can't get up level again?

    I can hear that people putting you down would be difficult. No one has the right to do anything that you don't feel comfortable with.

    Have you been able to talk to anyone else about the toxic people you see regularly? We hear you that not everything is hunky dory.

    If you feel like self-harming, please remember the following supports are available for you:
