The 1911 census has appeared online and this led me down memory lane. The 1980s were traumatic, never having had the luxury of a big or even close family, that decade robbed me of the few relations I once knew.
Singly, but with persistent finality, death claimed the remaining members of my family.
A long-lasting effect of that decade has been loss of memory. The brain can only cope with a certain amount of stress; so, when the level is high enough it goes into shut down, a kind of fugue state blacking memories out willy-nilly. (nolens, volens)
