    Vivid Nightmares

    I have nightmares nearly every night, and they're always really clear, and vivid with bright colors. However, on the rare occasion that I have a dream, it's always in black and white. I hate it.

    Nightmares Are Not Festive Lol

    I don't have a lot of nightmares. But on Christmas Eve morning I had a really horrible one. My greatest fear is a man from my past coming to get me like he said he would, and doing all the things he said he would do to me. It seems unlikely now, since he is in jail. But the...
