Ha! Yeah, you can really freak people out by just blurting it out sometimes. It's okay, just a hard thing for someone to react to, not the normal "hey, I've got a weird story" that folks are used to hearing.
I opted not to tell my parents. It wouldn't have done any good for anyone and I thought they might have felt some weird unwarranted guilt as parents will do.
Yeah, pretty much the same reason i have never said anything to my parents.
I am familiar with fleury's story but i have not read the book. I'm still dealing with my own issues as my mind remembers stuff it put in the vault. Even writing and posting here has brought up more memories.
