This is Dr. David

I am sorry you are having so much anxiety now.

this sounds like a horrible trauma to you and your daughter 30 years ago

you would benefit from talking to a counselor or psychotherapist or psychiatrist about these feellings you are having and this anxiety you are having.

you could have post traumatic stress disorder or excessive anxiety from prior trauma.

you may benefit from medications to help decrease your anxiety symptoms

there are medications which can help you sleep as well.

have you been on anxiety medications before?

are you willing to see a therapist and psychiatrist to assess your situation and anxiety symptoms?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
I've been trying to see a psychiatrist. And I found out my daughter was raped a week ago. U misunderstood what I said. No I haven't been on anxiety meds I do take Ambien for sleep but it's not working now. I fall asleep and wake up with my pillow soaked I guess from dreaming about killing the man who raped my daughter.

I am sorry about your daughter.

is the perpetrator who raped your daughter caught? are charges being brought on him?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
He was questioned Thursday and lawyered up. He goes back tomorrow for questioning with his lawyer. I feel like I won't get justice unless I do it myself. My daughter was a virgin. He has ruined her perception of men forever. He was like her uncle. He was good friends with my brother and husband for 30 years. I let my guard down and trusted him. It's my fault she got raped.
