I seem to be constantly bringing past sins into confession, I feel like i have to confess them even when i'm not sure if i committed them mortally. Are we required to examine the past (as in before your last good confession) before every confession? I'm pretty scrupulous to the point where i'll examine my conscience for an hour for a weekly confession. These examinations seem to bring up past sins or details to past sins that i'm not sure i confessed right or at all. I know that i should set a timer and keep my examination no more then 15 minutes, but when I've tried this before it never seems like it's never enough time even though my confessions are at the most weekly.
Please talk to your Priest about scrupulosity. If unchecked, it can be a sin by itself, as it leads to doubt regarding God's mercy. It leads to doubt regarding the validity of your confession. Doubt is the enemy's weapon of choice.
Always remember that God has destroyed your sin, and He remembers it no more. The reason that we are allowed to remember them is not to confess it for the rest of our lives, but so as to avoid them in the future.
What do we hear at mass? "I leave you peace. My peace I give you" (John 14:27) Our Lord did not make sanctifying grace, or the Kingdom of Heaven unobtainable things. His mercy is enough, and flows toward a repentant heart.
