    I have had a great few days with my mates in fact yesterday we did nothing but laugh and i felt really good and up, however i am sat typing this cos when i ewent to bed i started having my nightmares again which has completly confused me. How can you have a really good day then have nightmares? Obviously having the nightmares has brought me crashing back down and now i'm scared to go back to sleep even though i have to be up in a few hrs, i really don't know what to think or do. :sad:

    If you have the same dream/nightmare every night, you might have post traumatic stress disorder.

    I'm not saying you do, I'm just suggesting it as a possibility.

    For me, I had the same nightmare for over a year and also pretty much everynight. I didn't know what was going on. My psychiatrist said it was post traumatic stress disorder and I think she was correct.

    Know what it's like to be afraid to go to bed. Nightmares used to be terrible. I'd wake up screaming or walking around. Haven't had one for awhile. I agree with ExtreemWays it might be PTSD.

    Nightmares are horrible. I had some vile ones a couple of months back. They did die down but are starting to get a little more vivid now. Nightmares can make you down, depressed, not want to sleep and I think mine made me suicidal. Keep talking about them, bring it up with the docs etc. Don't let them mess up your sleep though hun :hug:

    I agree. It's definitely good to talk about them. I had bad nightmares in middle/high school. I mean, it got to a point where every now and then, I didn't even want to sleep because of them. Talking to my doc about them definitely helped. I wish you the best. :hug:
