I use to have a lot of those kind of dreams but I somehow learned that you can control your dreams to a point, it seem's like you are halfway awake when having these dreams and when you do realisle you are dreaming you can put into your mind a more pos twist in it and just go with it and your anxiety will be less and less as you learn to control them but night time P/A's that I'm in a deep sleep I don't even wake up from them but boy can I rip up a bed lol
But you are doing good looking into Cognitive Behavioral Therapy as I feel that this really is the only way out, But still some of us do need meds just to have control over are selfs and giving us a sence of depressing the way we think, but I do like having something for those times of high anxiety and if you really feel that it helped you talk to your pdoc about getting more xanax as it dose help you
Ok Paul sorry that was my bad on that one for I misunderstood you, I see that you are on Lexapro is that helping you at all right now? I'm on 20mgs of it and found that it works better for me with my thoughts running wild like that and it can take up to 6 to 8 weeks to full work or you may just need a ajustment on your meds as not all work the same for everyone.
As your girlfriend had said that you mainly get this feeling during the winter months now that part really sounds like a part of SAD with an anxiety disorder how are you during the summer months do you feel the same at all or is this just a winter thing you got going on here, the more input the better that we can work with and sorry but we have a double posting thing going on here.
