    POLL: If there was a drug you could take to forget parts of your past...

    This might've been posted before, I'm just too lazy to look.

    If there was a drug you could take to forget parts of your past, would you take it?

    That's an iffy question. I'm of two minds about it.

    a) Our pain and past experiences are part of who we are (but I don't exactly like being socially inept, very introverted, shy, somewhat scared of people..)
    b) Sometimes it just gets so painful that I'd do anything just to forget.

    So I'd have to go with yes.

    complicated question

    I value my life experiences

    i also take medication to controll PTSD symtoms that manifest as invasive and overpowering memories

    lessening the pain so that they can be dealt with is the best option, not getting rid of them entirely

    No I wouldn't - knowing and learning from my past, helps me to avoid difficult situations now, and should such a situation arise I know how to handle it.

    I agree with the point Andreus has made - medication to dull the pain and to help you overcome it is by far the better option in my opinion.

    That would be a good idea (for me), but as I don't have PTSD (just a mood disorder), I don't think such a drug exists.

    This is a good point too - if we don't know what our mistakes are, we can't avoid them in the future. I guess it's more of a difficult question than I originally thought.

    Nametaken - I know what a struggle you are going through at the moment - and having taken a fair amount of drugs in my time, the come down from these temporary measures only seem to highlight the reasons behind your problems. Have you thought of seeing a drug councillor - you can get help on the N.H.S. I have a few friends that have managed to stay clean by facing up to their demons. Going cold turkey alone without help may not be enough.

    i think to erase memories would be an easy option, something that intially appeals

    but, for me, at the end of the day...what has gone on before has contributed to who i am today, so i voted no

    Hmm. If one forgets something that happened in the past, why can't one retain what one had learned?

    I find I forget why I do some things. Others I don't want to remember why I do some things.

    Nope, not at all. I am who I am now and where I am at because of my past. Honestly, things are great and everything is working in my favor right now. If it weren't for my past, I wouldn't be this happy and fulfilled right now. Things are difficult sometimes but we always come out stronger. That's the point of it all.

    If I could choose the parts that I wanted to forget - then yes.

    Put me down for about 20 or 30 'forgetables'. That should get me back to 'normal' for this week.

    My first thought was "Yes!" I'd love to forget about the times I let myself down, when I did things I'm ashamed of today. But then...if I forgot the shame, might I do those things again?

    But there's no way I'd block out Danny, Dan!

    Well, it's not *my* mistakes that haunt me, it's the actions of others in
    my childhood that kinda F-ed me up.

    I mean, I did some stuff in my teens and 20's that was stupid and risky as Hell, and I wouldn't want to forget them, because you do indeed learn from your own dumb decisions and their consequences.

    But, the early stuff, the stuff I had no control over... If there were a pill I could take and forget it all....You'd better believe I'd be first in line.

    No, because if I forgot the worst memories of my life, I would also have to block out the best memories of my life as my life as well.

    I have painfully good memory that I remember everything in good detail even though somethings I don't want to. A pill would never work though. They may be able to make one to wipe away all your memory or most of it but they'll never be able to make one where you can choose which memory to forget. And even if it did, how would you know if it didn't erase other memories you used to have if you lost those memories too.

    It's not always mistakes you can choose to forget, someone can choose to get rid of bad memories like rape, parents beating them, the images of watching a friend die or something else that brings painful memories that make you sad or angry.

    I can identify with that very much.

    You know the whole being bullied in childhood thing? Yeah, that'd be me. I didn't even have a childhood ..I didn't get a chance to enjoy it because I was bullied so much.

    If it wasn't bullying, it was namecalling, etc etc.

    Re: POLL: If there was a drug you could take to forget parts of your past...

    No never, I want to remember the bullying, the parental rows, the school beatings etc. All the bad stuff because it has made me who I am along with the good stuff. It guides my actions and makes me who I am. I often work in Altzheimers homes and I wouldn't wish any form of memory loss on anybody let alone myself. But of course my view is based on a relatively un traumatic past, others are not so lucky and I can understand why they might vote yes.

    I am thinking along these lines too but I wouldn't deny that I did have thoughts about wanting such a pill when I was just so oh depressed after I lost him but now that my mind is thinking better, I have come to realise that my past is way too valuable to be erased just like that!
