Anyone experienced the same?

I have been struggling more with nightmares and flashbacks related to certain events after disclosing that information to my mental health team.

I find the past can be churned up easily. I have just been through a month of completing a form about how my illness affects me and it has taken me a couple of weeks for the memories to settle down again.

If continuous disclosure churns everything up for you then please tell them you don't want to go in to detail at the moment/too often. It is a common problem i think.

Yeah,I've been there.

Your mental health team should be helping you through it though. Have you let them know?

Hugs
