I'm sorry you have to experience the bad ones too, Borderline69 ... I find the ones I get while sleeping to be so disturbing and disruptive ... I wake up totally freaked out and it takes me some time to realize that it was a flashback while dreaming (often involves nightmares and night terrors) and I have to really do a lot of soothing self-talk to reassure me and my inner child that the bad stuff is not happening to us all over again right now ... Really don't like those ones at all ... And, I, too, also have some interesting olfactory (smell) flashbacks and find most of them related to "good" memories instead of bad ones ... Those ones are okay.
