I'm sure I had good times before turning 30 but I can't recall many. And those few had bad consequences. Maybe I need memory recovery therapy? Or does that work only for molestation that wasn't any fun?

The power of positivity can go a long way. Simply refusing to think about a bad memory by immediately vanquishing it from your thought process is what a lot of people do or should do. Don't want to think about something bad? Then don't think about it. Suppress it. Things like family members dropping like flies, the couldashouldawouldas, etc. Substitution probably works well for especially traumatic events. Your father molesting you as a child could be turned into your father playing tickle games with you. The mind is a very powerful thing, and it will do whatever it takes to make sure you don't lose it.
