Well I never thought I would be on this side of the fence. I lost my Father to Lou Gehrig's disease in April, that was a tough battle for all involved, at the same time, I dissolved my four year relationship with my now to be ex-boyfriend. I started having horrible vivid and graphic nightmares, it's too a point where now I'm even having day nightmares. I went and saw my Family Practitioner and she wants to put me on Paxil for anxiety and depression. I told her I don't feel depressed, but I truthly am filled to the gills with anxiety. I have a very high pressured job. I've had some intermittent therapy for the death of my Dad and loss of a four year relationship with my ex.
Has anyone experienced this? Do these nightmares go away with time? If I were to start taking something like Paxil, does that dub me as depressed?
I personally don't like the thought of medication to handle something like this, but I can tell this anxiety is tampering with my moods lately.
