^ThisI am having to fight NOT to create a false memory.
But the urge for this 'imagining' to become a real memory is very very strong. I keep having to reassure myself that it was me, telling myself a mental story (I'm an author, we do this kind of thing all the time, the 'what ifs' are what books are based on) and NOT REAL. In fact, I'm putting this here so that if my mind starts to slide, I have definite proof that this is a false memory. Or not even a memory, but something I created myself and almost 'implanted' in my own head.
Hard to explain, but I know it's not real. For now.
I too have a false "thought" which I can't describe as a memory but feels just like a memory. I know it to be false and yet the echo of it is always there. It began as an echo from a dream. I woke up from a nightmare and the bad thought/thing/memory has been with me since. Mine actually has had a negative effect IRL and I somtimes forget that it never actually happened.
