I am a 27 year old female. I have so many problems remembering my childhood, although they were really no noted sexual abuse that had occured. I was a very intelligent child and had many friends and seemed to be quite happy with no significant traumatic events that I can recall. I have a very high sex drive as I may find that I enjoy the attention quite a bit as well as just being highly sexual. I retain information quite easily as I am a very bright person and excel at nearly everything that I do, my memory is not so great though as I will quite often forget things that were just said to me 5 minutes ago.

I also have trouble following directions, I might often think that I have the best way of doing something as I know I have always been very rebellious since childhood. I seem to be very naive and completely trusting of people that I do not know. I find it difficult to see bad in other people unless they have really wronged me. And I have endured a lot of pain from people, there have been many many situations where I was screwed over and I continuously trust again.

I put myself in comprising situations constantly and love pleasing people to the point where I am frustrated if I am trying very hard to make someone happy and it does not work at the way as expected. All my romantic relationships have been very controlling of me and in a weird way I seem to like that as though I may just need that structure and to be told what to do.

I find my mind constantly bouncing from one thing to the next as though I can not stay focused. I am constantly changing subjects and do become bored extremely easily.

I guess my biggest concerns are my very poor memory, my inability to not trust people so easily, being naive and easily distracted.
