Avoiding Minor Flashbacks - How I Do It

Not open for further replies.


What do you do to avoid minor flashbacks, this can possibly help others. I use mental imagery. I repeat the time and date and especially the year. (to bring me back to today).
I also say and visualize innocent things, such as kittens, puppies, horses, bubbles, sunsets, waterfalls, etc etc etc.
This helps me to keep my focus off what is trying to take over as far as images.
These do not always help, especially if my mind is serious about remembering, but I will do it after the flashback to help make myself less sick feeling.
Please post your ways, it just may helps others who do not know these techniques.
Thanks, Donna-Lynne
