    In this nightmare, I went to the mall with my

    mom. My mom had told me to button my shorts before I left the house. We were walking, and my shorts fell down! I forgot to button them. When they did, the whole mall started laughing at me. People walking by, people from far off in the distance, even my own mother. For the next...

    My nightmares are endless.

    Falling off a building, spiders crawling in and out of all the orifices on my face, being strangled by angels, or being cut into pieces by a wood chipper. Yet none so painful as this hell we call reality. I'd gladly live in a world of endless nightmares for all eternity over...

    you shouldn't worry about nightmares,

    it means your still fighting and staying strong its when you start dreaming about the good things you should start to worry

    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!

    Been having them of late,

    ones that leave me shaking in a cold sweat and unable to breathe - last night was no exception. I could see in my dream a small child sitting on a seat, with a male hand touching her, molesting her. He used his other hand to pleasure himself at the same time. Just before I...

    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...

    I set in her chair, looking in a haunted

    mirror, I looked like her, i felt her pain. Lashes on her back, death crawling on her skin. The voices said go back in time. How did she die? And I remembered she had a baby that was not meant to be born. He killed her, the one she loved. They opened up her womb and took the...

    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...

    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.

    Cold sweats, my heart racing,

    and a jolt as I wake from that terrible place. I'm terrified of nothing and everything all at once...I don't even remember what the dream was this time. Going back to sleep is the hardest part. 5 mins turn into 10, 10 to 20, 20 to 30.... I just need/want to sleep peacefully.
