    I was abused as a child, and I keep having nightmares that I am getting abused or raped..

    the thing is, some times it is not even the person who abused me to start off with...

    it can be total strangers who i see through out the day in the street. R some times the attacker doesnt even have a face.. they are just there attacking me.

    What does this mean?

    Can any one help?

    My guess (i'm not trained or anything) would be that it's your unconscious mind trying to deal with the awful events that happened to you as a child. Have you got anyone, e.g. a therapist, who you're able to talk to about your dreams and experiences? I wonder if it would help.. of course we're here if you want to talk too

    hey hun :hug: i'm sorry this is happening
    i don't know if this means anything, other than that you might have something stressful going on in your life at the moment which might trigger these nightmares.
    if you ever need to talk, i'm all ears :heart:
    good luck hun :hug::hug:

    I have a session with my pysc this afternoon. I am going to try bring the nightmares up with him. It seems really strange. i dont understand them at all.

    I often have nightmares, but these ones are really bad. i hate them. i wake up wanting to die. i cant cope with them any more.
