Body memory?: Some people have had scary things happen to them, and their body recalls certain conditions such as smells, light, sound, etc. Sometimes there are conscious memories, sometimes not. It depends on what you associate with early evening time, perhaps. The best way to learn about your own responses like this, is through psychotherapy. Lexapro and xanax (alprazolam) alone won't advance your self-understanding.
