Why can't I remember eleven years of my life?

So, hi. I cannot remember anything out of the first eleven years of my life, and i'm fucking fourteen. I mean, my family members are familiar faces, and i'm pretty sure i've know them for all my life, considering we have family photos that i've seen before. But I simply cannot recall any memories from that time period. WTF is wrong with me?

Hi, I had trouble uncovering my past and still do, I have small memories that are random and hold no value whatsoever, but I found the older I got that I was able to put together at least some memories, but there is a phenomenon where your brain will simply 'fill in the blanks' when you don't remember a certain thing, meaning half of it may be real but the other half is something my brain came up with just to satisfy me. Sometimes I wonder if it has anything to do with 'blocking memories' (a point where the brain pushes hurtful or traumatic memories to the 'back burner' of your mind and locked away to keep from continuing to hurt you) I have been considering hypno-therapy (as stupid as that may sound) because I have read some instances where this helped patients remember memories that have been put on the back burner. I know this probably doesn't help at all but maybe it will be nice to know you aren't alone, and there isn't anything wrong with you, and maybe nothing bad happened to either of us to make us not able to recall memories. Sometimes I think if the memories aren't there they might not be there for a reason. Hope all is well and works out great for you.

I'm not sure why but some people just don't seem to remember stuff in the past.

My x gf would always have to ask me for details of things that sometimes happened only a few days ago.

I have a childhood friend who I can recount all of our adventures as children to almost as if they were yesterday. But he has almost no memory of them at all and tells me all the time that without me he 'wouldn't have a childhood.'

Having too many vivid memories can be a bad thing since they can sort of haunt you. My memory goes back till when I was around 2 years old. A bell on a grassy hill in Cuba I was trying to reach the rope to ring. Can never forget that bell or how I couldn't even Jump the few inches to reach the rope. Couldn't really jump at all.

It doesn't mean anything bad to not remember. If anything very early memories is often a sign of early psychological trauma from what I've read.
