Managing Flashbacks

The more you try to block thoughts of the accident the more they spring back. The secret is to treat the thoughts/images as you would a toddler having a tantrum, just carry on and ignore, don’t fuss over them. When there has been an extreme trauma the mind recycles the question ‘is this (the thoughts and images of the incident) relevant to today/what you are doing now?’, so long as you calmly answer ‘no’ and carry on doing exactly what you did before the accident, the tantrums/flashbacks gradually diminish.
