Unhappy Forget Bad Memories? / I Need Help

So something bad happened 6 years ago. I'm not going to say what happened, but it's something you could call a "traumatising event".

Over the past year I'd often think about this and it hurts to think about, but only tonight the memory is preventing me from sleeping and I cant take this anymore. I think this is the beginning of my depression and I dont think I can live with myself.

Trust me when I say, this isn't something I can talk to someone about. I need to get through this by myself with some help. Is there anything I can do to deliberately forget memories? That's the main thing I'd like to do, whether it's taking a specific type of medication or even something psychological like hypnosis or meditation if that really works.

If I don't do something and let myself carry on like this, I am sure that I will get depressed and who knows what that'll lead to. I really need your help.

I don't mean to push, but lifting this burden off your shoulders will help alot. The best way to help yourself is to let it go. (Cue music) Even if that means writing it out on a piece of paper, reading it aloud and then burning it.

Thanks for the suggestion although for my situation, it's not something easy to let go. This is something that will haunt me for the rest of my life. I will try it anyway.

I had a therapist who studied everything about trauma. Although, I didn't have trauma she could help me with, I do know that a professional therapist can work wonders. It's amazing and I suggest you try it. They'll help you every step of the way.

I'd definitely recommend therapy. You might not forget, but you might be brought to closure, or at least where it doesn't affect you as much.

Best of luck.
