I had a dream last night that my mother chose assisted suicide, and I woke up really disturbed, its as though I can never escape from the idea of death whether asleep or awake... And the dream was really vivid, and I could see she was panicking and suffering through her death, and it was really upsetting... ugh. I always have these awful, vivid dreams that have a profound effect on my mood upon waking. I wish there was something I could do to stop it, but I have a feeling my dreams follow the same patterns that my thoughts do during the day, and I'm always worrying, thinking about suffering and death, its awful really.. and there is no escape. :-/ There's no point to this post other than I wanted to get it out of my system because its really been bothering me for some reason. Unless of course you guys have any advice for lessened the impact/occurrence of nightmares, because I have quite a problem with them!
