Yes.

For some reason I find it difficult to remember positive experiences.

I would tell my parents stuff they did and said and they say "were we really that awful?"

See my thread about mood variation and thought, I watch these videos in my head, and it upsets me.

Same thing here, and then I get a fixation on it which only make me worse.

Even more problematic for me are that these negative experiences really don't get absorbed into my psyche, which mean when ever I have some kind of flash back, I find myself going into the same mood as I did when I first experienced what I'm remembering.

I also have problems with negative memories. Often they come up in nightmares, or when I'm doing a mindless chore like washing the dishes. I have been trying to think more positively, but It's hard for me to turn my mind around like that
