I thank you for posting this! It has wonderful advice on how to manage when this happens to us.

I was abused by my family for the first 21 years of my life, it is deeply rooted into my brain. I have almost constant flashbacks. If I am awake, chances are that I am having flashbacks. Once in a while, I can focus on something I am doing but they always break through. I would give anything to completely get rid of them.

Has anyone managed to do that? I have been told that they can lessen but not completely go away.
I know you wrote your note about flashbacks a long time ago, but I just came across it and wanted to say, I, too, have flashbacks, but only occasionally now. They do go away a bit but I am triggered by movies and treatment by others that is similar to what I went through as a child. It's best not to see your abusers.

On top of the flashbacks, I had horrific nightmares, was emotionally unstable, and got incredibly depressed. If you can get some trauma-focused therapy, it will help. I had a horrific childhood.
