nightmares/sleeping/panic attacks? - October 12th 2009, 03:45 AM

i just put part of this in the general health section but then i realized maybe it's supposed to go here so i'm putting it here as well and if you want to take it out of general health you can...

hi! ok, so as it is i haven't been sleeping well for at least 2 years i think! there's a lot going on in my life but to shorten this, the most closely related to this is the fact that my parents are divorced because my father is a sex addict! he used to...sleep with prostitudes every night...so i don't know but i've been having this really really vivid recurring nightmare in which i get the courts to give my mother custody of my brother and then my father is angry and grabs me after school in a car and...rapes me. and then i get pregnant. this hasn't happened, and i know it's not exactly necesarry that it would but i think it could and i'm scared of the nightmare! a lot of the time i find myself scared to sleep! again, i haven't slept well even before this started but...i don't know what to do about this dream! i wake up shaky and usually end up shaking the rest of the day not that anyone really ever realizes! does anyone have any help as to how to not dream it and/or how to sleep better?

also, i think i might have been having panic attacks lately! not around other people really or anything but in places like the shower or lying awake in bed i sometimes start breathing really hard and long for a long time, sometimes cry - something i basically NEVER do otherwise - and sometimes my (stomach? heart? ribs?) hurt too...i just randomly break down! i don't know if these are panic attacks or what i should do about them...
