I wonder if anyone has had this happen, I walked into a store that I’ve not gone to for years. I didn’t know why I didn’t go to this store; I just couldn’t really see myself going in. Well, today due to lack of milk and cereal I went in, and I was hit with a memory so vivid I thought I was hallucinating. It froze me in my tracks. I asked the kid sis, “Have we ever had any problems in this store?”
She very shyly told me, “well, there was just one little thing. But it was about six years ago.”
The one little thing was kind of big actually it nearly got me arrested. It did land me back in rehab. I told her what I needed, threw the money at her and ran to the car. As I sat there that memory just kept looping through my head and as it did that, more and more details have been filling in to the point were I’m sure I dreaming it. Vivid and embarrassing. I asked the kid, “Is this what really happened?”
She hated to do it, but she did say, “That sounds close to how I remember it.”
I’ve taken some vitamin D, had a hot bath, eaten some soup. I feel much better now, but WOW… I hope I don’t get hit with too many more of these.
Now I don’t know which is worse, false memories or memories too vivid.
