I can't imagine how difficult it may be. Perhaps there is some study you can partake in to help them understand it better. Sometimes, these studies are offered for free. Check with your doctor/neurologist for these sleep studies in your area.
i don't much about them, but i know what you're talking about - what kind of dreams to you have when you're so paralysed? are they lucid dreams?
it sounds awful - do they feel more like dreams or hallucinations? - do you feel more awake or asleep?
two hours helpless watching a parade of horrible phantasms?
it makes me shudder to imagine it, but i am so obsessed by mind and mental health it makes *me* ill
are you getting treatment?
well, i think you probably have to assume that they are at least in part, a manifestation of your anxiety - but you should visit a doctor - i mean, you'd diagnosed yourself in the question
well, they are a special category of nightmare, not technically a "normal" one
i suspect there is a meaning in the symbols that torment you themselves, but i have zero little experience with this condition - i've only read about it
i thought you were already worried
well make a plan of action for how to deal with it, starting with medical consultation
it depends where you live, i guess, and how
and google it
go to the doctors? do you know what the cause is?
a GP doctor, he can help you find a specialist doctor if need be. It sounds awful, so i would definitely see a doctor if i was you.
