How do you keep your mind in the present? I get a lot of flashbacks or moments stuck overthinking something in the past. I’m trying to find ways to pull myself back “into the now.”

      For me, I slip more than I admit, but I have to think I'm in a better place now, I've moved from the pain and destruction of other people from the past and get to write a new future. So do what you can to make yourself happy that will help you move on, some meditation, grounding yourself is always a calm and relaxing.

      I find it helps to know my triggers and avoid them as best as possible as such i avoid conflict. If i see or hear aggressive behaviour, i detour around the area and i also watch no tv programs that may risk even slightly referencing my triggers, its not at all easy but it can help reduce the flashbacks and severity of any night terrors
