Is it normal to not remember close to anything that happened in the first 10 or 11 years of your life? I really don't remember my childhood at all. When I see pictures of myself as a kid it seems like a different person because I don't remember where or why I am in the picture. When my mom brings up things that happen in my childhood I never remember it. I always thought I just had a bad memory but I was talking to my roommate and she said most people generally have at least a handful of memories of their childhood.|
I know people that have traumatic experiences as children like sexual abuse often block out parts of their lives but I don't think I was ever abused or had any other event that would cause this. Anyway, I was just wondering what any of you think, is this normal? I'm 20, by the way.
