After being subjected to a crime, some people think constantly about what happened. For the majority of us, these symptoms disappear over time.

In some cases, memories of the incident can remain for longer, triggered by a certain image, smell or another memory, which may temporarily cause the same reactions as the crime itself.

The images may be so clear and so strong that it feels as if the crime is being committed all over again.

These recurring memories, known as flashbacks, can be very distressing.

If these reactions do not disappear after a few months, it is important to seek help.
