Stess and dreams
I am changing jobs soon and lately I dream every night. It is normally some scenario that is really stressing me out... for instance we park my bf's car and when we come out it has been stolen... then we look and look and worry and worry about it.

Is it the underlying stress from chaning jobs that is coming through in that way?

Is there anything I can do to be lessed stessed about it? I am loosing alot of sleep tossing and turning...

The dreams simply reflect your nervousness about the changing of jobs, and will probably end when you make the change and find that it's all going OK. Brief Counselling could help you, in a couple of sessions, learn to relax yourself deliberately and handle stress better, and may be better for you and cheaper in the long run, than seeing a GP who might well give you benzo tranquillizers.
