ENGLISH FOR PSYCHOLOGY Forums Neuropsychology Memory (Year 2 Sun.) Reply To: Memory (Year 2 Sun.)


It’s hard to decide how I would behave if I were actually in this situation. It seems to me that if my traumatic experience was constantly painfully vivid in my memory, and I had no control over it, it would make it difficult for me to function in my post-traumatic life. In such a case, I would like to take advantage of the treatment.

If I had the strength to deal with the trauma, start therapy and work on it, then I would prefer to do without drugs that help me to forget about it.
But I think I would need some other form of pharmacological support, for example, something to calm me down. I believe that it would allow me to return to my traumatic memories during therapy without panic attacks or heavily crying.
