It's A Curse.... And It Scares Me.... It Only Makes Sense When It's Too Late

A few weeks ago I had a dream about a shooting.  24 hours later the shooting happened and a Police Officer was dead.  I had no way to know who or where it would have happened.  I knew facts, I just couldn't have known what they meant at the time.... or maybe I didn't look hard enough trying to figure it out.    I don't feel like I can tell anyone, without ending up in a psych ward.  This has happened all my life. 

I'm taking a break from antidepressants for a couple months (due to stomach issues) and this has brought the dreams back with a vengence.  I'm taking xanax to help sleep, but they come when it wears off.  I'm a retired Investigator, with a degree in Law Enforcement, but only worked in Law for about 5 years and didn't work in crime itself.  Most of my dreams are crime related.  Last night was a girl,15 years old, Kylie/Kaylie was beaten to death, and 3 boys were found neglected/dirty and abandoned..... that was a pretty quiet night for me. 



How do we cope with this on a daily basis?  Guilt?  Anxiety?

i have dreams like that ive them since i was a kid

OH....and if your going to leave a comment on my PERSONAL STORY.... at least let me something about you.... something personal about you.

My point was.... removing the anti depressant has somehow increased the dreams and allowed them to become more vivid. I am experiencing more in number and a higher number of predictions are coming true. Due to my level of education I am aware of the chemical composition of anti depressants and the effect they have on the brain... but I never actually thought it would be so strong when it came to dreams and predictions. <br />

I appreciate your comments, but I would prefer to only receive comments from someone who is having knowledge or experiences of the same type. I don't need comments from someone with no education and least of all no medical expertise.
