She has been mentioning, now complaining, of this for the past year and a half. One year ago I moved her to senior apartments. This was extremely hard on her, very depressed. Gradually she has come around a little but is still depressed, does not do much with the other renters, misses her car, etc., In addiiton she does not eat much at all, says nothing tastes good. Her meds have not changed. The doctor gave a script for an anti-depressany but she refuses to take it. What was an occasional comment about these dreams has now become fairly regular complaint. SHe does take an anxiety med, has for seven years. When I asked her what the nightmares are about she becomes quiet, does not want to mention it. Once she said she was mad at someone for somthing they saud. I have asked if they are about people she knows or knew and she said sometimes. I asked if they happened only at night-answer was usually. Asked if they happen during the day when she is laying down for a nap and she said sometimes.
Not sure who to ask for help. Her doctor usually addresses most of her complaints by telling her she is healthy for her age, to go out and enjoy life. In fairness to him he has done many blood tests, scans, etc, and other than bad arthritis she is in fairly good shape, but very depressed and anxious.
I would appreciate any guidance as it is effecting her sleep, making her dread nighttime.
