IT'S a convention of Freudian psychiatry that you mustn't repress painful memories or they'll come oot another way, perhaps in your eye twitching when anyone says "turnip".
I'm not an adherent of this theory. You say: "How no'?" I'll tell you how no', I mean why not. It's because in biographical accounts of sound persons one often reads that they simply buried bad memories and carried on regardless. Unfortunately, I can't remember who these people are, as it's a long time since I read a book, but you'll just have to take my word for it.
