So kind of new to this but thought it was worth a shot. I was recently diagnosed with PTSD after I was raped. I already have depression, anxiety and insomnia and this is all getting in top of me. Friends and family try to help but they just dint understand. Anyone have any advice on how to cope with the flashbacks?

I looked up the perfect square equation. The grounding technique I will have to try.

I use the five things technique; I name out loud five things I see around me and repeat them until the episode is over.

Your local rape crisis center has a hot line that you can call 24 hours a day for support for triggers and just about anything that causes us distress. I called them once in the middle of something I could not figure out. You may want to try and call them. I was impressed and able to come back to myself pretty quickly
