I'm convinced that the more you talk or think about this, the more aware you become of it, because for the first time, it happened to me on a personal
level. Before, it was memories of celebrities dying that hadn't.
I don't usually give personal details about myself, but for the purpose of this story, I'll share that my husband was adopted, we have a
one-year-old, and my husband's mother tells the same stories over and over and over again. Like seriously, I haven't heard a new story from her in
years... I think she wore them all out by the time I'd been married to my husband for about four months, no exaggeration.
So having a baby, you talk to other parents about the same things a lot. Mostly poop and developmental milestones. A lot of times you compare these
milestones to yourself or your significant other when you were the same age. One of the things that I've mentioned to all of my parent-friends is that
my husband was adopted already potty trained. My mother in law points this out religiously and how amazing it was that he was out of diapers at the
age he was. I have had to sit and act amazed and interested when hearing about it literally at least 100 times.
Well, the other day we were having dinner with his family and I was saying I was thinking about starting potty training our baby soon. Husband's mom
looked skeptical and said she didn't know if it would work. I said, well, you always talk about how Husband was potty trained when he was just a few
months older than One-Year-Old right now. She said, "No he wasn't! He was still in diapers! He wasn't potty trained until he was X years old!"
Ok. I have heard about how amazing this child was for being potty trained 3562789 times. She compared it to his siblings who took much, much longer
to be potty trained. Husband must think this is weird too, right? So after dinner, I was like, "She's told us about that millions of times, why is she
now saying you weren't potty trained until way later?! Isn't that weird?" Husband had no reaction, just shrugged and said he couldn't remember her
ever saying anything about it. Then I was like, "Well, you must've noticed me telling all of our friends about how you were adopted potty trained at
X-months-old. Obviously she told me that if I kept telling all of them that." He didn't even remember ME talking about it.
So either a.) I was in some kind of parallel universe where she told me that, I believed it for years and told all our friends about it, then I
popped into this dimension and she and Husband have no recollection of it because it didn't happen, or b.) Husband's just a typical guy and doesn't
listen when I'm saying anything about poop or potty training or any of the other mommy things mommys talk about and his mom's a whack job.
Also, there are a lot of celebrities that died that he should remember because we talked about it, but now they're alive and he has no memory of them
being dead. At least my mom was just as shocked as I was to see Nelson Mandela on CNN. Husband is completely oblivious. Why is that?
Someone in this thread said it wasn't time slips, dimension shifting, anything like that. They said it was much worse and not to discuss it if it was
happening to you, then only one person asked them about it and they never responded. I PMd them and they never responded to me either. I want to
Is the government making their perceived threats to their order insane? Are they doing weird stuff, stealing everyone's memories of it somehow, and
are a few of us immune to their memory-stealing? What the heck is going on. I wish that person would say something.
