How do keep flashbacks under control? I never know when one will randomly pop up.

Sorry you are having flashbacks. I'm assuming its something pretty intense. I've heard different treatment theories. Somehow tricking your mind to accept the experiences causing the flashbacks as something not so shocking or horrendous. Are you getting therapy or help from a professional ? Do you take prescription medication ? Do you pray or meditate ?

Think of flashbacks as intrusive memories having some sort of trigger (smells, certain noises, seeing eyeing something that causes flashbacks (i.e..intrusive). In my case, as a Vietnam combat vet) triggers include diesel exhaust fumes, certan sounds/noises
