Anyone experience flashbacks? I had my worst one today,ever.The woman who were held by the monster in Cleveland. I have been anxious with a migraine ever since this was found out. But today,I heard a knocking sound outside,and I really thought someone was "trying to get out"of the house next door,I felt like the memories of these women and my own abuse I suffered for 3yrs at the hands of my teenage boyfriend,were crashing down on my head. My boyfriend beat me,raped me,secluded me,kept m,e from my family and friends,all up in his family home attic. I was taken home to my parents at night. My Mom saw the bruises. Never said a word. A neighbor saw him beat me in front of my house. His father would open the door and yell"knock it off"but not once came to my aid. It really DOES happen. I was screaming and crying this morning . My DH looked outside and saw a neighbor boy playing a drum...All was OK. I fell asleep exhausted and DH took DS for a haircut and a movie. I am scared over the flashbacks and my reaction. I am on Xanax for anxiety and panic attacks and have been doing OK. I am a long time sufferer of panic,but this was like an out of body experience. What should I do. i do not have a counselor currently.
