chances are the reason it took a year for you to start having these 'flashbacks' is that when you first get out of such an abusive & horrific environment, it takes time for you to recover as you are continuously in 'survival mode'. You are away from the situation and for a while...it feels good to be free from it. You are enjoying being able to live in a normal environment for the first time and all you want to do is 4get what you have been through. The mind has an amazing way to protect itself and not allow things to crowd our brains until we are ready and able to deal with it. Now that the 'honeymoon' phase has worn off.....it was really only a matter of time 4 these horrible experiences to come 'flashing' back before your very eyes. Even though you are removed from the abuse, you haven't dealt with what it has done to you and the effect it has had on you and until you get the proper help that you need to deal with all that you have gone through and you find the tools you need to help you build a confident and happy future for yourself...these 'flashbacks' are going to keep rearing their ugly head at you! As a survivor of physical,emotional,mental and sexual abuse....my heart truly aches for you. But your father has stolen enough of your life from you. You don't have to let him have a minute more of it. With the right help and support,you can face and overcome what has happened to you and you can live a happy,fulfilled and normal life. You have alot to look forward to, but you need to get the help and support to help deal with what has happened to you and learn how to get past it and move on with your life. It looks like you have alot of ppl here in your corner and cheering for you. Please take the steps you need to put this behind you so that you can take your life back into your own hands and keep us posted on your progress along the way!!! i look forward to watching you grow and blossom into the strong healthy person you were always meant to be and look forward to hearing how things are positively progressing for you!
