@Comment 9 by Corylus:It least you don't have hyperthymesia, that one really gives a meaning to wanting to forget.

Oh no !! I just looked it up my heart sank. I can remember being born. I remember my entire life like it was a movie. I just assumed every one could. I always thought that was part of the photographic memory problem.

Well at least now I can give it a proper name. And yes wanting to forget some of it often comes to mind. It makes it difficult sometimes to not live in the past. It is as if the brain is on constant playback mode. And you get caught up analyzing it. UGH!
