    I was stuck in this nightmare.

    I yelled and tried to fight off the person trying to kill me. And I felt my husband trying to wake me up. I yelled for a couple of seconds more and finally woke up NOT yelling. But my throat was sore....

    The Demons

    I hate the tormented demons of my darkest dreams. They pierce me with their razored fingernails and taunt me with their demonic laughter. I wish that I could leave them in the darkness but some days they follow me into the light.

    There was a demon in our house,

    and I had to try to keep everyone calm and tell them what to do. It was really stressful because I was fighting my own fear and the demon was harassing me.

    work which sucks. Usually it revolves around me either dying or killing people.

    I don't want to go to sleep.

    Every time I've gone to sleep for the last week I've had nightmares that wake me up. Even when I'm napping. Now even going to bed makes me anxious. This is getting absurd.

    I dreamt of taking my own life,

    everything was so vivid. I saw myself poisoning myself and then cutting my veins. I felt dizzy and knew I am dying. I regretted my decision and knowing that death was inevitable for me, I prepared myself to die. I'm awake now and realised that I'm still alive but it's so scary...

    It seems like I have them a lot lately.

    The man who sexually abused me has been dead for years but he still makes his way into the back of my mind when I sleep. At least once a week I have to throw up these bad dreams. I almost fear sleeping and it makes me tired all the time. It's been worse since my ex left. I...

    Last few nights I've had nightmares.

    First time I've had them since I was very young. I find them scary but fascinating. They felt so real and I felt so much emotion in them!
