    So it's been a couple of days now since I haven't been getting proper sleep due to flashbacks popping up in my mind when I want to relax and go to sleep, they are very hard to get rid of and they make me lose plenty of sleep....usually because I really don't know how to get rid of them so that I can have a clear mind for sleep, does anyone have any advice or help for this?

    What kind of flashbacks are we talking about, flashbacks of the Vietnam War?

    I've got similar problems to that but I'm able to control it better by changing the relationship I have with those thoughts.

    Start realizing that these thoughts are not real, you are simply creating a fantasy in your head that doesn't exist whenever you are having those imageries. These girls you see on your screen have nothing to do with you in real life.

    Start seeing that you also have better power over them, they can't win unless you submit to them. Also shifting your focus inwards and putting yourself first before anyone else helps a lot. I've made a post talking this recently, feel free to check it out as I'm sure it'll help.
