My mind had literally left the building in therapy today

My biological father use to lock me in tiny spaces for hours at a time when i was a kid. I have been making progress, keeping myself calm when my therapist lock the door but early this morning when he ask me to be the one to lock it, things took a turn for the worst all of a sudden my head made me believe i was in a different scenario. Maybe im going crazy

Thank you and yes the man was evil. I wished being locked in without food or water was all he did

Hi you are not going crazy at all. How can you be when your father treated you like that. If you didn't have claustophobia I would be much more surprised! What an appalling way to treat a child. Did you manage to work through this with your therapist? x

It took a while to get me back to reality and make me believe i was in an office and not locked in

Im sorry you had to go through that and you're not crazy some things can trigger some memories to make our mind feel like we're back in that space. Just try to do some exercise to keep you grounded to reality

How scary. Your brain must have had a flashback. I have them. They feel real. I’m glad you are working on this with a therapist. Be gentle with yourself.
