Dreaming of...

I hate dreaming at night.

I know that sounds awful, but I never have the happy, sunshine and puppy dog dreams. At least if I do, I never remember them. Instead, I have the awful, nightmare-but-seems-so-real kind of dreams.

Night after night this week, I've woken up in a sweat, terrified that something is wrong. Each night, I have these dreams that feel so real. Even once I'm awake, I can't shake the feeling that all is not well. I force myself out of bed, check on everyone, and try to go back to sleep. But I find myself falling right back into the nightmare again.

I wish I could just get one good night of rest. I wish I could sleep without dreaming. And I wish I could shake this feeling that something's wrong.

Sorry to hear you are having such sleep troubles :(

I only get like that when I'm stressed out over something, in my waking life & I find the dreams aren't always related to what I'm worried about.

That happens sometimes. It sucks. You'll shake it. Try going to bed thinking that everything is sunshine and roses. :)

I too have trouble sleeping but I can often remember my dreams. Stress is a big trigger of sleeplessness

Sending big hugs your way. That kind of thing happens to me often, so I commiserate. Feel better soon.
