Increased nightmares

Lately I have been having nightmares from my old job and they are bleeding into my current job and causing me a lot of anxiety. I am not able to get away from my abusers because my last company and current one work together. How can I lessen the pain? I am constantly triggered?

Can you say more about what the abuse was, and the connection between the companies? It would help other members to understand your situation better, so they could provide thoughts that will relate to your situation.

My last job bullied me for 3 years because over 7 years I had been in and out of the hospital. They couldn’t fire me for my mental illness so they did all they could to get me to quit. I finally found a new job but unfortunately the two companies work together in a lot of projects so I not only have to deal with my past company I even have to work with the same people. I am starting to have nightmares and am always panic if my boss wants to talk to me. It has been 18 months but every thing feels so raw. I didn’t get the clean break I was hoping for.

so sorry I am late to the request of your answer, hope you don't mind me chipping in!

So sorry you've been having nightmares from the old job you currently have left, but also sad to hear it is causing pain or distress with your current job and the anxiety.
wanted to say firstly, have you spoken to a relative? support worker? a therapist? I secondly agree with what, @Survivor3 and @joeylittle have stated above.
the abuse, is it emotionally, or physically? either aren't nice, they should not be making you feel so bad, have you spoken to your manager about what's happening? or even a close friend. Is it possible to find a new job? I find fresh start, job etc clears my mind makes me want to focus on something good and it makes me want to get stuck in! hope to hear from you soon, Ellie
