dreams are a difficult thing. i wonder how to process them. i just had two dreams that i know through the experience of dreaming them and the moments of waking up that what the dream was about was not what the dream was really about. i can’t call them nightmares but they were in no way pleasant. i have had dreams where i did scream. these were the dreams that kind of nudged me into a certain part of my wake belief system. i’ve never torn anything of bed or blanket but every 6 or so months i wake up with scratches on my forehead. i’m certain i’m trying to get at the .......... that is in there. i do feel better waking up. do you? i often want to tell the dream to someone but these last 2 i also cannot.

I just stumbled upon this thread and remembered you supported me briefly last night after I came into chat with vivid flashback nightmares, so sorry to hear you are going through this too.

If you need someone to talk to, I am always around here somewhere. We're here standing by you and wishing you the best.

Thank you so much for your support last night!! You are a good natured person. *hug

I'm the same way. I have night terrors and nightmares and nightmare internal worlds. I understand. I do wake up screaming sometimes. I wake up panicking and terrified and the fear takes forever to go away. I don't have any now, but cbd helped w this a lot for awhile until things got worse for me. Anyway it's nice to see there is someone talking about this. I'm so sorry, I really understand how debilitating it can be for hours to days sometimes.

I have also woke up injured after having no memory or sure it spawned from a nightmare/dream. :/ Super unsettling. I don't often feel better at all waking up. Takes a while often. The amount of cigarettes and weed my body has smoked to deal w night terrors says it all. Feel for anyone who experiences this. -Rin
