    I just got out of the navy, I am so happy about it, and I moved to WA and within twelve hours of getting here I get a girls #. I have two interviews lined up for jobs that will hold me over until I can apply to law schools. I thought I was actually happy. I keep having nightmares though. me getting the shit beat out of me by my father. then it turned into me being the aggressor. now I just see myself collapsing, screaming, yelling how I don't want to live. I see people flock towards me but I am alone. they disappear. it is like no comfort or support is good enough anymore. I felt everything before I woke up, I felt my stomach sink, I felt my heart melt with sorrow. I am just so tired I dont know what to do. my doctor recommended prozasin for my dreams before I left...does anyone have experience with it?

    Hi normaljoe, I am not familiar with that med, a psychiatrist once told me there are no meds for nightmares(maybe he just didn't want to put me on any more meds) but there are meds that can trigger nightmares. I read and just felt I had to reply just so you know someone out there is listening to your pain, you don't have to suffer alone,l hope the med works for you, good luck x

    Sorry to hear about the nightmares, have you ever had therapy for them? There are certain types of therapy that can tackle flashbacks and nightmares. I am not familiar with the drug in question. The best thing to do is research the drug to see if it's an option for you.

    Ex-Navy with Dad history huh?
    Navy with Dad history here. I'm 3 years into a 6 year contract, and if my experience is anything to go by,
    living with self-righteous bullies as your superiors is kind of hellish after having a home situation like that.
    I'd recommend talking to a psychiatrist. They can provide the therapy, but also can prescribe something if necessary.
