Our expert says:
Abuse is rarely done in only one way, and many different variables decide how it may affect us. Panic attacks, anxiety disorder, etc., are really common disorders even in people who led glorious childhoods.
And it is often not actually useful to explore the depths of ancient history, rather than dealing realistically with current symptoms such as in CBT.
It seems so very obvious that it should be useful to discover reasons and causes for feeling bad, but it is surprisingly unhelpful in practice.
Obviously, those who sell their services as experts on excavating the past will insist that it is vital to do so, but the good quality evidence is not on their side.
And much depends, too, on how old the "baby" was when such things happened. Up to around age 4 or 5, our brains really don't have the wiring in place to form lasting and accurate memories.
But the important thing is to work towards relieving these unpleasant symptoms and problems now. YOu need to see a good GENERAL psychiatrist for a thorough assessment, and then a discussion of treatment options, which may usefully include medications, CBT style counselling / therapy, or other interventions.
