But I do feel sad about forgetting important things in my loved one's lives, forgetting names, things that people expect others to remember and that feel thoughtless to forget.

 :yeahthat:

I can and do tell my closest friends that I've only been in this state of forgetfulness since two incidences of retraumatization caused by contact with FOO. I don't just forget names but also events of importance in my friends' lives whether distressing or great. I used  actually to have a really good memory.

Very interesting too about the imaginary world. Yes. When I was a child I lived in my imagination. Not only was my home life chaotic, and difficult. But I am an only child. I was lonely. I daydreamed about having a larger family. You know, come to think of it. I used to also wish I was an orphan, who lived in a big room with a bunch of other kids, some of whom I was related to. How sad is that to daydream to be abandoned. But in the daydream the other people took care of me and protected me and I felt safe.

I still have a crazy imagination. I still have worlds in my head that I can go to, and I still go. In fact, I have been writing a lot lately, and I often wonder why or if I will ever write about the people and worlds in my head. And to be honest, I don't want to ONLY because they are too special to me, that I don't want to share them. Like it will lose the magic. Like they are too important to write about.

Strange.
