I'm depressed tired triggered flashbacks from hell. It last days ! I wish it would stop. I keep pushing my limits with breaks of gentleness. I have so much in my life I want to change but have set backs due to Complex PTSD. I am an adult orphan and have no one to celebrate my birthday with. This will be my 10 the year like that. I want to be grateful but deep down I'm simply not. I cried in church yesterday trying to release my emotions. I need help.

@rdpca1 , sure I invite interest. Yes, I have a therapist and psychiatrist since 2014. I see the therapist 1x a week and psychiatrist 1x2 months. I do cognitive behavior therapy and was taking Prozasin but Prozasin caused my nightmares and flashbacks to be even more vivid. My coping mechanisms are earplugs, A candle to light, Soft music. Do you have any suggestions ? Thank you for listening.
