It is true that some distressed people can be persuaded by dedicated fanatics to look in the wrong places for the source of their distress. (Tory politicians, for example, still attribute our present ills to Labour rule.) Most people with terrible memories tend to run away from them, rather than cultivate them - until they reach the point in their lives when they can't run any more. From this point, they find themselves involved in what we could call the Painful Truth Syndrome.
