Confused and trying to make sense of this latest flashback

I have thought for many many weeks that I was ready to throw the garbage that I have holding me back over a cliff and that i could move forward and be better or more healed. No sooner than this play through my head did I have a flshback or nightmare in the middle of the night that had me wake up screaming. In this I was throwing it over the hill and it pulled me down with it and left my children along and without a parent at home. I haven't slept well since this and I don't see my Dr;s till Tuesday. I know that this could be a step in healing but I am afraid to sleep now.

I guess I want to know if its normal to feel like you have a good handle on it and then all of the sudden get hit over the head and thrown backwards?

Often times it can feel like one step forward two steps back.
