It's getting hard to cope but the thing that was helping me the most was when I was taking CBT cognitive behavioral therapy classes it was teaching me a lot of strategies on how to ground myself and keep myself into the present rather than allowing myself to go into the flash back and relive The experience unfortunately I'm no longer taking those classesI had to stop going when I lost my house so was homeless for a while I'm now housed ,so yeah on that note , what i learned during CBT classes was really educational as well as freeing if you can actually bring yourself to utilize the tools that you learned whichis kind of the harder part is actually utilizing tools you learn
