Hello my name is XXXXX XXXXX you for bringing your concerns to Just Answer.. regards XXXXX XXXXX upsetting memories and symptoms..for which I am truly sorry to hear of your experiencing...not easy to say the very least...and feel for you much in this..
The good news is that there is treatment for flashbacks/unpleasant suppressed memories ..due to an unpleasant trauma suffered...
This treatment is called EMDR and is a very powerful and successful psychotherapy technique...it is also a relatively new intervention..and helps people who suffer from trauma, anxiety
, disturbing memories, post traumatic stress
and many other emotional problems. Until recently, these conditions were difficult and time-consuming to treat..so EMDR is considered a breakthrough therapy because of its simplicity and the fact that it can bring quick and lasting relief for most types of emotional distress...and research has also shown that it is the most effective and rapid method for healing PTSD (Post Traumatic Stress Disorder).
This is a specialized field for professional therapists so I have posted EMDR directories below for you to source for contact details and further information...
This can be an exceptional healing aid and has been for many in the past/present..and I really hope you find the courage ( and that the time is 'right' for you) to seek it out... Please 'accept' my response if it has helped as it also contributes much' by way of keeping this very valuable service going for you and others alike in the future....Take very good 'self' care now and my thoughts will ' be with you in this...Kind thoughts & very best wishes
