Whoever told you that was an idiot. They obviously have never been in that type of situation and have no idea how the memories can overtake you within a few seconds.
I too go through that...a certain smell,a song or just out of nowhere the memories come back.
I wish that we could just forget it,but once you have lived that type of nightmare it will always be there to haunt you.
The only thing we can do is try to curb the memories,it is easier said than done I know.
But,remember that everything you have went through has made you strong. You might not think it now,but you survived. And that takes a strong person to be able to wake up everyday and try to go on. No matter how hard it seems.
Right now you feel that you are never going to be able to get out of that dark hole. But you will,it will probably not be tomorrow or even the next day,but one day you will wake up and realize that you are ok. You are safe,and for once you will feel relief.
Please stay strong
