Need support urgently? Head to this thread.
So recently I've been having what I can only describe as flashbacks. It feels like I completely zone out and I'm right back to the night before/morning of my Dad's suicide and I am experiencing how I felt at the time. But I also seem to play out alternative scenarios in my head of what could have happened if something had been different. At first these were controlled...they were thoughts that I started thinking about and could stop...now they aren't...they just hit me as and when and when I "come back to reality" I'll be in tears. More often than not they hit me whilst I'm at work. I guess I would find it really helpful to have some coping techniques on how to prevent them. It's a really recent thing...last week and a half mainly...I have suffered from nightmares previously and still do but they are less often now.
