Ok, I've never posted on anything like this before, but I could really use some insight. I was sexually abused extensively by multiple people when I was growing up and was sold for sex as well when I was a child, the last time being a few years ago, when I was 22, I think. I have been through counseling and thought I was over it all, but over the past few weeks I have been having these intense nightmares concerning all of this. They are so real and I wake up slightly disoriented, sweaty, and terrified. It's like all of this is actually happening to me all over again. I have also started having these flashbacks again when I'm awake. I have no idea what has caused all of this to come back up, but I need it to all go away again. Any tips as to how I can do that? This has to go away asap. Any help would be greatly appreciated! Thank you ahead of time for all of your help and insight.View Thread
