    Question for Richard - Flashbacks at same time as present situations anxiety

    Post by sara44 on Sat Sep 09, 2017 7:07 pm

    I don't know what to do about this "double" thing that happens...

    I'll be feeling anxious about a current situation (medical), feeling out of control and anxious i'll get hurt.
    This triggers flashbacks to when i got hurt and was out of control of a situation in the past with an abusive husband.

    The "emotional" flashback "colors" the present situation with extreme emotions (worst case scenarios usually), and its difficult to sort out and deal with the "normal" anxiety one would feel with a medical situation.

    I find myself applying worst case scenario thoughts to present medical situation and believing they are true. Having the emotional flashback emotions at the same time as the present situations anxiety is really confusing.

    If flashbacks are that severe, resulting in panic attacks, you need one on one therapy. A forum is not going to be much help. CPTSD is unique to each individual, although the effects have a common thread. I hear that CBD oil is having some good results for the condition and unlike tranquillisers usually prescribed for such symptoms (panic attacks) is non toxic and you don't need a prescription. It is available online.
    But. Any form of medication can only manage the symptoms.To really tackle the cause of the problem you need to find a good therapist. As Richard says these are as 'rare as rocking horse shit' so perhaps one of his courses available for sale online may help. They are advertised on his YouTube videos.
