Anyone else have super crazy, vivid (not sexual) dreams on anxiety meds? They tend to occur early in the morning and then I wake up with my heart racing and all sweaty. Can anything be done to help prevent this?

yes, this happened to me as a side effect when i took antidepressants and antipsychotics. it made me dread going to sleep, this worksheet from DBT is kinda corny but it helped. even if a nightmare wasn’t recurring rewriting the ending helped me to stop ruminating about it over the course of the day

Thank you so much! I don’t always have nightmares per se but they usually don’t end well!

Try cannabis at night to stop remembering dreams.
You might even like it better than anxiety meds.

a word of encouragement: if you feel like you're being underpaid, you probably are. I realized I was and started applying for new jobs immediately - just landed a job that not only am I excited about, but I'll be making 58% more, base alone, than at my current company. and it's a lateral move!

this big of a jump may be an anomaly - I think it mostly highlights just how much I was being underpaid. but if you think you're underpaid, find a company that actually values you!

I would like to find a new substitute for my reward system.

I really love my job & kids, but let's face it: I crave for more rewards than they can offer....or different especially in times when workload rises and rises.

I used food, sweets, binge watching Netflix, etc to satify that, but nothing really kicks. And somehow I used to having running to ease those cravings, but that does not work at all...


So: how can I get sports to be my dopamin again instead of sweets.
