I am feeling rather fragile and vulnerable about opening up about blank screen non-memories or “blankness” as a small child of six or so. Thank you for allowing me to start to express my truth here. Time to pick this back up with my therapist.
Just curious, does anyone with childhood trauma experience similar blank screen non-memories or “blankness?”

That’s the kind of exploration that there’s never a predictable path; you can only figure it out as you go along.
Thanks for your encouragement. I really have not even done the research about disassociation and all the rest. I guess there’s a part of me that would like to remain in denial. If it didn’t happen, it didn’t happen.
Then there’s that part of me that wants to let go of trauma so I don’t have as much generalized anxiety. Right now these parts of me are fighting like cats and dogs.
