The flashbacks have been getting worse again. I try and distract myself but it just doesn't work.
Sometimes I wish I wasn't here anymore, no more hurt, no more pain

I'm sorry you are feeling this way to @outlander
My psych knows about the flashbacks. I have strategies to manage them but they don't work when they get bad. Nothing seems to work.
My mind is so messed up and all over the place

i get what you mean about the strategies not working when they are bad. its almost like you have to catch them as soon as it starts for it to have an effect but usually thats not possible.
would talking about something in general terms be helpful for you tonight as a distraction? or maybe do you want to talk about some strategies?
im not going anywhere so whatever you want to do is ok with me as long as your safe

Sounds like a busy day @outlander . I hope it is not raining for you tomorrow. Are you camping out tomorrow night?
I haven't got much on tomorrow.
