Anxiety attack and vivid dream I was killed

I've been very anxious lately. Having obsessive thoughts about stuff. Had a couple of anxiety attacks. One night I had a vivid dream that I was stabbed in the throat and died. It's been affecting my sleep which affects my moods during the day. It's a vicious cycle. Finally called my psychiatrist the other day. She was able to squeeze me in today. I told her what was going on and she thinks it's related to my past, so she suggested that I talk to my therapist. I just so happen to have an appointment with him today. The psychiatrist increased the dosage of one of my meds. The therapist agrees with the psychiatrist that it's related to my past. We talked about it until it was past our time. Luckily I have another appointment with the therapist next week. The funny thing is that nothing is related to the holidays, it just happens to be happening now.

A dark part can haunt us for a while. My past is dark and I am reminded about it constantly. People remind me by their actions and words, as much as from what I see and hear.

With you having such a dream is an aftermath from a past or an anxiety attack. Such will affect your sleep which affects your daily focus. The cycle is not pleasant I know that for sure.

You are going on the right track to manage what is upon you.

The thoughts are tough too. When they come around think positive. I had to force myself to do such. It wasn’t easy and took time. One way which helped me was taking a yoga class.

Stay strong and know you will get through. 😊

Thanks for your response. So true. It wouldn't let me respond on my phone, and I just now got a chance to get on a computer.
