I was beaten by my ex boyfriend in the mall bathroom and a month later raped by my bestfriend. This was almost 5 years ago and im still having flashbacks and nightmares. I wake up sweating in the middle of the night not being able to think about anything else. I cant sleep unless my husband is right next to me. I have panic and anxiety attacks at work if to many people are around me or I hear to loud of noises. I cant shake the feeling of this never going away. I don't wanna go back to self harming to cope.
@Annabella825 Thank you, same to you.
Yes my flashbacks happen mostly when im alone, i hear loud noises or get startled. They are hard to ignore, but im working on it.
@BB520 the people here have been incredibly helpful when having panic attacks and flashbacks when alone, helps feel someone is there and cares and not so alone. Just post a little help and usually a few people will be there. Thanks again everyone....
@rdpca1 Yes, ive thought about doing that and probably will next time it happens. Thank you!
