Have you ever spoken to a counsellor about what happened or what your nightmares are about? I know that can seem like a big thing, and it is, but it's also something that could really help. How would you feel going to see your doctor and seeing whether they could refer you to someone to talk to about this more? I think having someone you can talk to on a regular on going basis could really help. Yeah, it may make it 'worse' or bring it to the surface more to begin with but sometimes that's what we need to do to accept and then begin to deal with it.

Hey there, I know how scary it is to deal with flashbacks and nightmares. I also know how confusing they may be to you. In order to get them under control, you have to talk about them with someone. (Such as a counselor.) It is extremely difficult, I know from personal experience, but you need to do this to put your mind at ease. If you need anything, feel free to PM me<3
