Our expert says:
Remmber, most of us, for perfectly natural reasons, don't recall much of our childhood, especially early childhood, as we are not yet eficiently recording memories in forms practical to recall. Its not clear how clearly you discussed all the abuse to your mother, but she sounds really neglectful and careless about this.
YOu could indeed be significantly helped, but only really by proper therapy from a properly qualified psychologist, preferably one with some experience in this area, but NOT someone who focuses mainly on issues of earlier abuse ( as they too often have their own hobby-horses to ride, rather than attending purely to your own best interests ).
I can understand that you might feel reluctant to discuss these matters with someone else, but you really need to, and any properly trained professional psychotherapist would be well able to help you feel comfortable and to work through these issues. Its not wise to try to do this all on your own, and I musty warn you that some of the most popular and best-selling books that claim to help people with such problems, are hugely inaccurate and may themselves cause serious problems.
