Feeling angry at my abuser today. I've also been having flashbacks which are making it hard to sleep. I'm sick of suffering! Why did this have to happen to me?

I have the same issue, anger comes and goes. Sometimes it’s sadness. Have you read about trauma?

Glad to know it's not just me. Yes, I have.

I am so sorry you are having flashbacks, 88cev88. They are really tough and especially when they make it impossible to sleep. I have been through really bad ones at different times and couldn't get sleep.

It's possible something triggered you and I hope this will pass.

Sending support through this very difficult time.

P.S. it helped me to figure out why abuse happened and other traumas and it helped on the rational level. But on the subconscious level, it still didn't take the symptoms away so that was the moment I realised I needed a different approach.

Thank you for your reply!

Abuse and trauma are complex subjects. I hate to say this but your abuser was a trauma victim in all likelihood too. Then there is the issue of repitition compulsion neuroplastity addiction entitlement mentality ....people have beliefs that are not grounded in medicine and psychology.

That's very true. My abuser did complain about his mother so I assume she was abusive toward him. And yeah, some crazy beliefs out there indeed.
