Flashbacks – always catch me off guard

I know recovery from an episode is always bumpy but sometimes I do think events conspire against me. I suffer from flashbacks related to traumatic events in my past which up until 2 years ago used to dominate a depressive episode. Thankfully EMDR therapy however hard that was has meant that I rarely get flashbacks and normally these are always connected to a very clear trigger. On Saturday one such trigger occurred and I dealt with it well at the time but unfortunately on Monday this was followed by another trigger and I have had some nasty flashbacks and bad dreams.
For me talking about them often takes away some of there immediate power and today has certainly been more positive.
Definitely a bumpy recovery!
