Since I was a child I have undergone two extended periods of abuse, the first of which was when I was six to seven and it was at the hands of my teacher, the other was when I was twelve to fourteen and it was by my psychiatrist. I took me a long time but I thought I came to terms with these incidents, and although I knew I can never fully be ok with what happened I thought I was strong enough to move on with my life. However over the past few months I started remembering stuff that I thought I forgot about both incidences, but particularly the first one. Since then I have started having these flashbacks first when I was asleep in the forms of dreams and then it started happening when I was awake, during the day. It's as if I am a child again and every so often I am reliving the moments in a few seconds. Now the flashbacks are getting more frequent and more vivid to a point where I can actually see the room, the people, and even the furniture as if it was yesterday. Although I know at this point that I probably wasn't as at peace with these times in my life as I once thought I was, but I still have no idea what triggered it, and more importantly I have no idea how to stop it. I am at a point now where I simply blink and it is like it is happening all over again and it is starting to destroy me emotionally and I feel powerless to stop it.
