If PTSD Patrol ever had a theme song, it would be Gloria Gaynor “I Will Survive” because that is exactly what we need to keep hearing, You are a survivor!
PTSD is like being in a bad relationship. It can beat you down and just when you think you are taking your life back from the misery it inflicted, it pops its ugly head back into your life. That is a relapse that a lot of people go through.
Like being in Alcoholics Anonymous, it can happen but when it does, you go back to meetings and call your sponsor until you are strong enough again to get back on the road to recovery.
If you are having flashbacks again, there could be many reasons but the biggest one, is an anniversary date. Your internal clock remembers it, even is you are not aware of it. Flashbacks usually happen around the time IT happened. Once you are aware of it, then you can take the key away from it and change the lock!
