    I don’t specifically have PTSD but I do suffer from severe anxiety attacks.

    What helps me is some grounding techniques –
    Look: what different things can you see all around you?
    Smell: what can you smell?
    Hear: What sounds can you hear around you?
    Touch: what would you be able to touch, different textures.

    Maybe this could help when you’re having a flashback maybe?
