Sometimes I yell at them aloud and people think I am nuts when I say things like NO I DON"T WANT TO ANYMORE GO AWAY!

There must be another way to control flashbacks.
Meds can be of slight help, particularly benzodiazapenes like clonazapam which have a calming effect, and if depression is part of the problem, then SSRI's like paxill can help. However, the real treatment of PTSD is trauma work. Google EMDR for Post and Complex traumatic stress disorder.
