I don't remember most of my childhood. I'm 18 - almost 19, but my memories of life before 14 are kinda few and far between and really hazy are third-person point of view. And I feel like something happened to me - like someone sexually abused me, but I can't remember it. I've been sure that it happened...is it normal to not remember? Is it okay to not want to?

For me, I am adopted. I was adopted at the age of 6, got to choose my name & everything. Apaprently I was removed from my biological parents home at the age of 2. I was removed from there after apparently suffering a broken arm.

I suspect due to other things as well, which the scars of are still on my body to this day. My bottom lip is split, the lowest knucles on my left hand have these circular splotchy marks that my friend and I assume are cigarette burns. I also have one that is quite larger, as if from say, a cigar on the upper part of one of my thighs. That is all I am aware of as I can't look at my back or anything.

Also, the abuse could be said that it started before I was even born, due to my biological mother smoking and junk before I was born. When I was born, I was close to 2 months premature, weighed 3lbs and nearly died from not enough oxygen to my brain. Was in an incubator for quite some time. I do at times wonder what it would have been like to have a twin brother or sister. I won't know that as the twin I had died at birth.

On top of all that, from age 2-6, I was in a foster home and I know I'd get my hair pulled a LOT. I do have one fragment of a memory, of being in a crib, finding one of those curtain hooks and using it to drill a hole that had a circle around it in the wall near my crib. odd memory huh?

Anywho, that is my story I suppose. The past is the past and I try not to dwell on it, as I can't change the past. I can only take the experiance and realize that it is an example of how to NOT treat others and make sure that I don't inflict the same types of pain upon others.

Take care everyone. I hope you are all able to find the peace you are searching for in responce to whatever things you had to suffer and endure through.

Would bullying count as abuse? If so, then it somehow feels weird calling myself a victim of child abuse...
