Unhappy Insomnia/Night Terrors Help

Good Evening,
I have struggled with anxiety and ocd for most of my life, and this last year have been experiencing night terrors, as well as insomnia. The insomnia has really gotten bad to the point where I finally went to the doctor, which I really wanted to avoid having to do since I am not too thrilled about being on meds again, but I am desperate at this point. I was prescribed Trazodone, and it works for me, however the next morning I feel ill and like a zombie that is half awake. I guess I am worried. Right before the night terrors started, the anxiety and OCD started to almost go away, of course I still have my usual OCD tendencies, however it's nothing compared to how terrible it was a year ago. But now theres the night terrors, I wake up in the middle of the night screaming, without any known reason. Most of the time I am not even aware of this and have barely any memory of it, my fiance will tell me the next morning all about it. Shortly after the night terrors started, my insomnia worsened, I think possibly due to my subconscious fear of going to sleep since fear is what feeds the night terrors. I love my fiance however it is hard to discuss this with someone who doesn't experience any of these things. Sometimes I feel so lost and worried, and so frustrated.
Has anyone else experienced the night terrors, insomnia, following the OCD???
I am trying to have a better understanding of it all and not feel so alone in all this.
