Question To Ponder What is one of your best memories from your childhood? This is probably an indication that I am dealing with TMS, but I have very few childhood memories. Many of them are bad, and the memories I do have are very vague or foggy. I sort of remember, but there are a lot of holes and it's difficult for me to remember the feelings around it. For example, I grew up in Germany and when I was 10 years old, my dad's company transferred him to Dallas, TX. So my parents, my brother, and I all left. I remember walking out of the airport when we arrived in Dallas and how oppressive the heat and humidity felt and that is it. I don't remember saying good-bye to my friends, my grandparents, and my dog in Germany. I don't remember the flight, anything after arriving there, etc. I feel that I should remember more details from something so significant at age 10. Maybe not? It's the same thing with happy memories. My mom, my brother, and I ended up going back to Germany and so started many years of my mom spending part of the year with my dad, and part of the year with me and my brother. We lived with my grandparents (my mom's parents). I have always loved horses and wanted a horse badly when I was a child, but that's not exactly cheap in Germany and we didn't have a ton of money. One summer, I was probably 12 to 14 years old, when we went to visit my dad in the US he had bought a horse for me. I know I was excited, but I don't actually remember walking to the back yard, seeing the horse, the excitement I felt, or anything about that moment. Again, I feel I was old enough that I should have memories of something so significant and joyful. All that to say, I don't have a true happy memory of my childhood. The one above about the horse is the best I can come up with.
