    I find myself having nightmares and flashbacks. I am aware something happened to me; but my memory is sketchy. I also find myself avoiding certain situations. Could these be the effects of something traumatic in my life?

    I am 38 years old and I keep having this recurring situation and I don't know if it means that something may have happened to me that I don't remember. How do I figure this out and make it stop?

    Seeing a psychologist who has the experience in working with trauma will be very helpful. If something traumatic happened to you, its okay if you cannot remember the details. But you will find that your body will remember. Trauma does not pass away with time it is something we need to understand and make sense of in a safe way and learn how to manage the triggers.
