Why do I get Anxiety when my phone rings?

Anonymous
Every time my phone rings my entire body is under pressure. I used to be involved with a controlling guy who rang my phone every second of the day and hearing my phone buzzing gave me so much anxiety. I just know the second I picked up the phone it would be him questioning me about my day and if other guys are speaking to me or if I’m speaking to them.

After the situation ended sour I still heard buzzing even when my phone wasn’t ringing. Whenever my phone rings I feel as if it’s him coming back to see if he can take more control. I do not care about us no longer being in contact because the situation was TOXIC but this is driving me insane.

Pleaseee, I need some advice?
