Nightmares

I should be way too old for this! But every once in a while I get these crazy, scary nightmares. They haunt me for days afterward and I can still remember them years later.

I woke up from one at 4 am this morning -- and it was so scary I had trouble going back to sleep. It was about a demon-possessed child and I can still see that girl's creepy smile.

And now I am so, so tired!

Lingering ones are the worst. Usually they mean you are trying very hard to work through something difficult or unpleasant. Spray some lavender, open all doors and windows (if possible), and breathe.

You're not too old, because it means I'm too old! I have horrible nighmares occasionally, maybe once a month. They do linger, and it is hard to "shake" the fear afterwards. My DH usually wakes me up during them. I can still picture the last one I had. Ugh.

I still have night terrors sometimes where I semi wake up and can't tell if it's reality or dream. I feel you. It is terrifying. The worst one I ever had I dreamed that my ds 19 died and woke up hysterically crying and screaming. It haunted me for weeks.

And agreeing with melatonin. After three days of using it, the nightmares started. Horrific ones.
