So sorry you went through this, but glad you found this forum for support. I say yes on both. Definitely a therapist to help you work through the trauma of not being able to trust your own father to keep you safe, and yes to medication to help you stifle the nightmares while you get help. I had to do the same for a while, both sleep and nightmare meds.

Sitting with you.
