thinking about things my dad has done before which made me uncomfortable and make me feel panicky, not a fun feeling. there's always been something off about my dad but i've never felt like he ever did anything to me. i think my already traumatized brain just picks up on things that aren't there.

@Littleturtle1000 well like. i don't wanna make it sound like my dad has ever down right seemed pervy towards me or anything, at least not from what i remember. it's just there are things that have triggered my trauma or just my own personal issues that seem weird when i overthink about them. idk. maybe i'm not overthinking, but to keep myself from possibly demonizing him in my little mentally ill brain i'm just gonna minimize it.

There is likely something there that you can't deal with on a conscious level. I've been there myself. My father DID do pervy things that I can remember (talked to me in a dirty voice) but I don't remember him actually molesting me as a kid. I DO remember my adult cousin molesting me so if my father did something it was before I can consciously remember. There are pictures of us running around naked as kids but that doesn't mean anything. Again, your concerns are valid and there is likely something inappropriate that went on, even if you can't consciously remember .

@ruin ptsd can be like that. We want to be alert and safe and yet not overly obsessive. Talking it out objectively with others sometimes helps us find that middle place.
