GELIEWE DEIDRE: I FEEL so awful about kissing my best friend’s husband that I want memory-suppression treatment.
I’ve read this is possible and I really want to block out what happened so I can move on with my life.
Ek is 34 and my best friend is the same age. Her husband is 37.
He’s a big flirt and I’ve always resisted him, until that evening. I was feeling low and he caught me off guard.
I was very drunk and fell against him in the hall, and we ended up kissing.

I have a boyfriend, and I feel bad for cheating on him too.
This is preying on my mind so much, I can’t sleep.

DEIDRE SYS: There are some medical ways of suppressing traumatic memories, but they’re not in common use.
Rather than trying to forget – which won’t erase what happened – you’d be better off forgiving yourself.
MORE FROM DEAR DEIDRE
Your best friend’s husband shouldn’t have kissed you. You had a moment of weakness and won’t do this again.
Please talk to someone so that you can work through your feelings.
