Yes, probably.: It does you an injustice to diagnose you based on a few sentences. However, severe flashbacks of past traumas are known as ptsd (post traumatic stress disorder) and are a very real and painful response to experiencing extreme trauma earlier in one's life. This condition is treatable with therapy and medication. Please seek help. You do not need to suffer with this for the rest of your life.
