Missing Pieces

This is a portion of my pediatric medical record.  I had been seen by this doctor from birth until I was 14 years old.  There was nothing unusual to be found except for the time missing between the 1973 and 1975 visits and the doctor’s findings in 1975 when my mother  finally brought me. 
  •  May 3, 1973: Follow up exam for illness. 
  • April 22, 1975: Sore Throat, Stomach ache, UTI, Migraine – RX Gantrisin for UTI and Phenobarbital.
  • April 29, 1975: Follow up found still has stomachaches, Mother thinks emotional turmoil – classroom.  Wait out school year.
 My parents took me to the doctor ever year prior to May 3, 1973 and after April 29, 1975, so why did I not see the doctor for almost 2 years?  What happen between Spring 1973 and Spring 1975?
 
The most significant missing piece happened in Fall 1974 – Taken to the ER by my parents due to lacerations inside my vagina.  I was released to go home since my mother was so upset and the doctor on duty had never seen injuries like this.  My parents were told to follow up with my pediatrician.  This was never done and the ER report was nowhere to be found, however, my parents remember.
 
Prior to my mother taken me to the doctor in the spring of 1975, she kept finding bruises on the front of my thighs while washing my hair in the bath tub.  She was very angry when I said that I did not know how I got them so finally I told her some mean girls at school kicked me (which was a lie).  During this time, I also got in trouble for drawing naked pictures of women.  I have no idea why I draw them.  Where were my parents?
