Since I was a child, I have always had bad dreams. From upon waking and seeing a doll dance, I hope that I was still dreaming, till today, still having some serious images.
I hate the ones where you want to wake up but can't. The ones where you wake up to the sound of you own voice yelling out. The ones where you think that you are awake and can actually hear and speak to people or even have thought you got up and went on your morning routine but, you were still sleeping only to feel something behind you just when you thought that it was safe.
I live with someone who is constantly waking me up in the middle of the night because of the moaning I make, sometimes even crying, while I am sleeping. Most of the time I can remember in detail of what I had dreamed of but there are times when I don't remember, and I am glad.
Always in the dark, someone is there. I even on occasions, dreamed of who ever it was being so close that I felt the warmth of their breath as I lay in bed.
Usually, for me, the worst are the times are when I take a nap. I do that alot being that I usually don't sleep too good in the night. But, it doesn't matter, day or night, I have them and I want to know why!
I was told to write down my dreams and when I did that and had my next session, I was told not to eat anything sweet before going to bed because sugar can be the cause. I have followed orders and still continue to have nightmares.
I am afraid of sleeping alone because of my nightmares. I always have nite-lites on in the whole house.
Can someone tell me why this is still happening? What is the cause? What can be done to help it stop?
