    It's every night... It's getting tiring. No one else I know hates it when it starts to get dark. I'm so sick of this **** I could die.

    You know that feeling

    when you first wake from a nightmare?. . . . All is pitch black in your space. But all you can see, is darkness. The fear prickles up the little hairs on your arms, and you hear breathing. For a second, you can't tell if it is your breathing, or the evil thing that followed you...

    They're more like nightTERRORS. I mean they're so bad that every morning at 2:30 I'm awaken by some freaky scene in my dream. The last one consisted of white/silver fire making some freaky noise as it blew across me. When I started out of bed I seriously thought it was all over...

    I have a different one every single night.

    Last week I had a nightmare that I was in the middle of nowhere, where many many people were being held captive and hostage, being tortured, killed, beaten, by these ugly beings, I believe they were humans. In my nightmare, I was the one who was supposed to rescue and save them...

    The Cure

    Nightmares. They the worst. I used to have them reoccurring, every night. But since I've met my current boyfriend I don't anymore. I'll have them if I'm worrying too much or just on a bad night, but it's so much better then it used to be. I wish that this didn't happen, it just...

    It borders on a year now,

    that I have had nightmares almost every night. My mind has been plagued by insecurity... And with it, came the nightmares. I wish I had the typical nightmares; the ones where you're running from some monster... Or being mocked or followed. These are enemies I can fight. If that...

    I had a terrible nightmare last night,

    and I can't get over it. I was raped, and I didn't know by whom and I was suddenly like four months pregnant. Everyone at school was laughing at me, and my teachers all kept asking (like typical girls) who the father was, was it a boy or girl, and that stuff. I couldn't tell...

    I was at some weird school

    and one kid was playing piano constantly while we were trying to work. Every time I turned to look at him there was someone in the window who turned around and ran away really fast. That went on for a while and I started realizing everyone in that school had some form of...

    Ever since I've had my daughter,

    I've literally had a nightmare every single night. It wouldn't bother me so much but the nightmares are so horrible and gruesome. In a lot of them I'm screaming and crying from some terrible event that occurred in the dream. Some of them are reoccurring. It's so bad, that if...

    Every Night

    Every night I am forced to watch the love of my life die all over again in the exact same way. Not a single detail is different from the sick truth. I can't seem to get away from it. The first time was bad enough, but every night now, what the hell am I supposed to do? I'm...
