In brief: Understandable

You were in bad shape & got over the depression after being with her you probably fear your depression will return if she leaves.
You need a work up and treatment to prevent future depression and help restoring your self confidence.

In brief: SSRI? Prazosin?

See your doctor/psychiatrist.
If medication is appropriate, and if the doctor diagnoses depression/anxiety, an antidepressant such as an ssri [zoloft, lexapro/celexa, prozac] or other antidepressants may help. Prazosin or Clonidine may reduce nightmares. Lithium may be helpful if suicidality is a serious concern. Doctor should also observe over time for possible bipolar.
