Do you pretend?

Postby Coraline88 » Wed Oct 13, 2021 2:02 pm

I have been pretending lately that my papa (honorary father) wakes me up when I have a nightmare. He lives on the other side of the world (and we can only write letters in real life). I pretend he says it's all right, we exchange a hug, and I then I try to go back to bed after he leaves. It's the only thing that soothes me. I don't really fall back asleep. But I calm down. I have schizophrenia and ptsd, so nightmares are common. I know it's so childish, but the terrors release the scared child within me. I try to be an adult, but it's hard. Does anyone else pretend something to comfort themselves?
