What is the very first memory you have? - December 4th 2015, 09:38 PM

Basically post what your earliest memory is. I mean logically, anything before the age of 4 is probably a lie. So if you gave memories from before you were 4, it's probably just your mind making something up. (Joking...I think...But still post here)

Mine is: When I was a baby I had some form of epilepsy. One of my earliest memories is when I was 2 I had a severe seizure. And I had to go to the hospital and I was hooked up to a lot of machines and my mom thought I was going to die. But the doctors found a medicine that my body didn't reject and it worked and I haven't had a seizure since then. (I also don't take the medicine anymore. I was taken off of it around age 5)

That god does not exist, I cannot deny
That my whole being cries out for a god, I cannot forget.

The gates of Heaven were locked shut. The pits of Hell, they were all filled up. And I fear I don't belong here.....

How could someone so perfect feel so insecure? As to scar her skin with cuts and burns and still want to hurt more. How does someone so loving learn to hate her own guts? Drawing a picture on her arm with a blade, as if her mind wasn't dark enough

My earliest memory is either age 3.5 or 4 when my uncle visited and I met him for the first time. Although there are other memories that I associate as "early", I believe the one mentioned here is the very earliest I can go back.

Duh... I think the one that I recall most clearly was then I was with my father in the forest, I fell down and I cracked my arm. Healed quite quickly, thankfully.

My memory is similar. I had a fever induced seizure at 3 and remember being in the hospital. I remember other stuff from when I was 3 as well - so it may not be the earliest memory per say. Infantile amnesia starts to offset at between 2 and 3 and so anything before 2 is probably a false memory. Its hard to determine if things are false memories or mis-attributions ; like if you remember a crib, it could still be your baby crib but its more likely to be a false memory or a memory of someone else's crib from a later age.

Re: What is the very first memory you have? - December 5th 2015, 01:15 PM

My earliest memory is from about 4 years old. I was in primary school and it had been my birthday. I had a Barbie pencil case, with felt pens and stuff in. I remember my parents not wanting me to take my new pencil case in to school in case things went missing. I got upset, but took it anyway. So I was in school, and all my friends were around me and using the felt pens for colouring in. Then the teacher told us to sit on the carpet. So all my friends left me, and I was sat at the table frantically trying to collect my felt pens, and some rolled off the table. I got a little upset that nobody helped me haha.

But I have other memories of that class at that age and not sure which one came first. Like I remember when the teacher brought in stick insects (which I didn't like) or when we got to flick paint from a paint brush to create firework paintings. Or when I helped paint the school mural, and got to go on a trip but there was only a few of us, and the teacher forgot and wondered why I wasn't wearing school uniform Or when I was sat at the table putting chunky wooden beads on a string, and the Headteacher came in, and asked me if I was making a pattern. But I was so shy, I didn't even acknowledge she was there

one of... Watching my parents play pacman.
Another one is noticing how huge our pet dog was back then.
Also remember how I lost my first doll and got the same identical.

I moved back while
my head was turned.

It was my 3rd birthday. My nan bought me a 101 Dalmatians painting set, to which I painted completely pink.

This one is really early, but it isn't a lie.

My mom was very sick when she was pregnant. She had something that is supposedly common with your first pregnancy and with twins and this was both for her. It didn't look good for us so they decided to do a c-section to remove us early. I can tell you that I honestly remember seeing red (the inside of my mom) right before they pulled me out and then I saw a light in my face and that's it. I've been told I probably remember that because c-sections are traumatic to babies.

I have other memories at around two and three, but I can only remember them because of the content.

I don't have a lot of childhood memories but I'm working on retrieving some and I can remember sitting on the rocking chair and eating a cheese stick before I went to preschool every day. I can also remember being upset because my mom was pregnant again and when she was far along in her pregnancy she couldn't lift me.

I think my earliest memory was when I was around 4 years old and we went to Dreamworld (a theme park) for the first time. I especially remember going on a few rides and screaming my head off although they barely even moved. I then proceeded to get lost while staring at something and got sent to lost and found.

I was in kindergarden and I was about three years old. I played doctor and patient with one of the boys there. LOL

My first memory was the back of an ambulance when I was a few months old.
