    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...

    The past two nights I have had the worst

    nightmares. They have been so intense. I woke up last night and just sat right up in bed. I kept trying to go back to sleep but every noise woke me up it was terrible. I am sooooo hopeful tonight is a better night I could use some sleep!

    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.

    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...

    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 keep having some kind of dream in

    which my dog dies in some kind of way and it leaves me devastated, I usually wake up crying or just really traumatized. This makes me realize that he is gonna die sometime and I know I won't take it well, and the more I think about it the more I get depressed.

    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...

    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!

    Last night I had one of the worst nightmares

    I've had in a while, though it seems somewhat silly to me when I think about it now: I found myself alone in my old room. I was sitting on my bed, but things felt slightly off. Still, the atmosphere felt rather relaxed, so I let my guard down and got up. I paced around my room...

    There's nothing worse

    than waking up in the middle of the night shaking and sweating because of something your brain literally made up. I think whatever part of me that creates these stupid horror flicks is really sadistic. Or since it's technically a part of me, would it be masochistic?
