Frown I can't sleep on my back: PTSD trigger

I'm unable to sleep on my back. If I do, I end up having anxiety and freaking out. I feel as if someone is on top of me and it brings me back to what my ex-boyfriend did to me. He took advantage of me when I was sleeping. Now I'm unable to sleep on my back, if I happen to sleep on my back I always end up getting triggered and I wake up crying and sobbing. I feel so vulnerable and weak because of this. I wish there was something I could to do to relax about this. Just want to be able to sleep on my back again, like I was able to do. But now I can't because of what he did to me.
