I have been having the worst nightmares ever! I keep having these dreams that are so real, I have to wake myself up before they get too far. One night, I had gone to bed around 2am and immediately started dreaming. The dream started out normal, I was just walking through a park at night. (I've been known to walk at night to clear my mind, but normally with a friend or my dog.) In my dream, I was walking by myself and I came up to a bridge. I decided to go through the tunnel of the bridge and continue my walk. When I got to the middle of the bridge, there was a man standing there in a black sweatshirt, jeans and ski mask. This seemed odd to me because it was very hot and I was running in a tank top and shorts. So I go to run past the guy and he mumbles something, ignoring him, I keep running and push on toward my destination. Then, the man starts to run with me and put it foot out to trip me. I fell to the pavement and scraped up my face, arms and legs. I then see this figure above me and for some reason I pass out. I wake up later, to find that this "creature" is on top of me, doing vile things. Only when I look around, there is a crowd of people cheering him on. They are telling him, "make it hurt," "make her cry," "she deserves this." On and on the jeering went but I couldn't push him off or make a sound. Once he's done, his friend comes up and starts doing the same thing. This insanity continues for hours as each person in the group "has their turn" with the broken girl under the bridge. Then I always wake up and I sit there shaking until I finally throw up. I don't understand this nightmare and I just want it all to stop. I don't know why I shared this and I'm sure its a bit upsetting but I had to type this out and get it out of my mind. I can't take much more of this.... I'm on the edge and I'm about to fall.
