    You could make up a memory 🤷‍♀️ It’s not like they can check to see if it’s real or not. I have the same issue with my memory.

        it should be easier since you’ll be writing it. When I have to lie, I try to build it around the truth.

    You should write about how the only thing you can remember is that you can't remember anything. Feel free to share details on how you remember feeling so frustrated that you were unable to remember important details, or how scared and confused you felt when you were given a prompt to write about a memory when you struggle with memory issues.

    maybe you could not make an ableist comment? There are numerous conditions that cause memory problems, and one can't simply 'pay more attention' to make them go away. In the case of CPTSD, which this person has, it causes damage and improper development to the brain. Three main areas are affected, however the most notable in this case is the hippocampus. The hippocampus is responsible for many things, including our ability to learn and remember things. For someone with CPTSD, this part of the brain is damaged and/or improperly developed. You cannot pay more attention to negate the effects of brain damage. I hope this helps you understand how your comment comes across as incredibly rude, and how it invalidates this person's struggle with their mental illness.

        don't worry, this wasn't directed at you. There was someone being awful, but their posts were likely deleted due to how mean they were

    not directed at you at all! I made it to defend you actually 😅 someone had commented saying "or maybe you could just try to focus?" or something along those lines. I've been doing a lot of research into mental health and memory issues lately, so it really struck a nerve with me.
