So I've been in a really long depression that almost topped a year back, while I may not be over it, the antidepressants seem to work well enough.

And due to this I've like become almost immune to fear, as I see it, fear is triggered because of self preservation, take that away, and fear becomes a reduntant mechanism.
and naturally nightmares are then percieved as simply just dreams.

But lately I've gotten a new kind of nightmare, one not centered around fear, but sadness, I dream that my pills stop working, and I get really, really sad.
it kinda worries me.

Possibly something to talk to your prescribing health care physician about.
