Flashbacks - December 5th 2018, 10:52 PM

This thread has been labeled as triggering, particularly on the subject of rape or abuse, by the original poster or by a Moderator. The contents of this thread might therefore not be suitable for certain sensitive users. Please take this into consideration before continuing to read.

I often have flashbacks of what i went through and I don't know how to make them go away. I have flashbacks of when I was assaulted by my uncle on my mom's side for threatening to call the police for domestic violence(Him abusing his then gf). I have flashbacks of him when he grabbed my neck and hit me in my face. I had a red abrasion on the side of my face and marks on my neck. I also have flashbacks of when i was sexually abused. I see me doing what i was forced to do. I don't know how often i have them but they seem to happen a lot. I don't know what triggers them. I could be doing anything and they come. It makes me mad and makes me feel like its my fault these things happened especially the one with my uncle.

@TwistofFate_07 I know exactly where you are coming from. I have flashbacks from the months of abuse I endured. Like you said they come out of nowhere and they can be from anything from my past. My reactions to them can be anything from being violent and needing to be restrained by my dad or older brother to just crying a lot. I have been doing therapy with my therapist such a Cognitive Processing Therapy. It is talking and writing therapy and also Eye Movement Desentisization Therapy which is a light therapy. If you see a therapist you should ask your therapist about them.
