I read this a couple weeks ago and now I'm wondering if it applies to you:

Your "last impression" of Transylvania, the last couple months there, were SO bad. If the researchers are right, you can't help but focus more on the bad stuff than the good. Maybe the bad memories are starting to fade and you can remember the good ones now?

That's really interesting - if something gets worse towards the end then one's memory of the whole experience tends to be worse. (I do like the comparison with having a probe run up one's intestines. Well it wasn't quite like that!) Yes the situation out there did get worse and the final months were bad. Understanding that is a big help towards understanding why I certain negative feelings have been so powerful. Thank you for this insight.
