    I always have nightmares

    where someone dies, I'm not sure what it is but every dream I have someone dies in it. Last night was one of the most vivid and terrifying I've had. It started with me on a boat, it was the middle of an ocean and I found myself falling asleep. I slouched forward and my eyes...

    Gunman

    I had a nightmare last night that my husband and my two kids and I were at a school just standing outside, when a man pulls up in a car. He jumps out and starts yelling and screaming at everyone. He then takes out a gun and starts shooting at everyone. Everyone starts running...

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

    Last night, I had a dream

    where I was falsely accused for stealing, and these people were going to sentence me to death. I remember thinking how I was going to try to talk back about how it wasn't me, and how I wasn't ready to die, but I woke up because I was afraid of dying. I think I have a vague...

    So I'm slowing down on things I know trigger me.

    Trying to not get the flashbacks like I used to anymore. ...but my stupid head took this as an opportunity to give me more intense nightmares to make up for not having flashbacks. I hate my head.

    Actually, I rarely suffer from nightmares.

    My dreams are just random things that don't ever make sense. But if they are nightmares, they're usually about sharks. But yesterday, I decided to take a nap in the middle of the day and woke up from a nightmare that narely left me gasping. I had a small dream about our new...

    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!

    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.

    I found out what's causing them. I'm afraid of the dark but never told my roommate because it's embarrassing and I figured I needed to learn how to sleep in the dark anyways. Welp I go to bed before her and my brain literally noticed when she turns off the light even when I'm...

    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.

    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.

    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?

    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...
