Please can someone explain this?

Posted , 2 users are following.

When you have anxiety does anyone get periods where random flashbacks of old dreams or memories just pop into their head for no apparent reason? When it does it makes me get all panicky and feel tense and get a mild adrenaline rush even though the dream or memory is not a bad one. I am scared is this a form of seizure?

    I get that all the time.

    Yes, they usually aren't the greatest moments of my life- usually the opposite!

    Humiliations, regrets, sad memories - I don't know why THOSE are the ones that shoot up in my consciousness but I guess I'm a masochist.

    I just sigh and (in my new attempt of being grateful for everything in my life) say "well, I'm a better person for having gone through that event" and try to just move on.
