I am struggling with flashbacks. I know this isn't new, but for me it is.

I was sexually abused at the age of 4-5 years of age. It was by a neighbor boy. I will be 59 years old in a few weeks. I thought I had this abuse dealt with 24 years ago. But, I was wrong, this time around I am having flashbacks. I did not have any flashbacks last time I went through therapy. I find myself wandering around and not able to focus very well. I have always been a self disciplined individual but right now I cannot remember things people tell me. This is very frightening for me and I find myself struggling with small tasks. Is this a normal response to flashbacks?
