Hello and welcome to Healthcare Magic. Thanks for your query.
I can understand that you are going through a difficult time due to your disturbing dreams about your abuse in childhood. It appears that this is causing you significant personal and socio-occupational dysfunction
. You also report inability to sleep.
No, since your symptoms are causing so much of distress, it is important that you seek professional help. You need not necessarily see a psychoanalyst to relive your past traumatic experiences. But you definitely need emotional support and counselling
to help you handle these problems.
I would suggest that you see a psychiatrist
for a detailed psychological assessment and further management. trist for a detailed psychological assessment and further treatment. There are effective treatment options - in the form of medication or counselling / psychotherapy
which will help you overcome your problems and help you have a proper, restful sleep.
Wish you all the best.
