How do I know if I've been molested as a child or if my mind isn't just creating false memories?

You know, I have struggled with this question myself a lot lately. I thought, oh that's not what that was, or am I sure it wasn't meant a different way. I had to dig deep, and it made me feel miserable. I was making excuses for my molester, by calling them false memories. There wasn't anything false, it all happened. I remembered it, didn't I? If you need, look up what molestation can look like in different cases, maybe compare it your experiences. If you're feeling a certain way, I'm sure you know the answer yourself. I'm sorry you're going through this, and I'm sorry you feel this pain.
