    welcome although its under not the best circumstances you will soon see we are a very friendly and understanding bunch.
    as for sleeping, currently im on 11 prescribed pills: initial insomnia, main insomnia and early morning insomnia. and let me say i wake refreshed everytime.
    i used to have nightmares all the time, that maybe something you may need to work through with councelling like i did - i still get the nightmares and we still have to tweek the sleeping meds along with my other meds now and again. but insomnia is the worst, you go to bed and get up feeling like a train wreck and it doesnt get better.
    we are here to support you all the way good or bad days so we have your back whatever the trouble no matter how little it may seem we know if it bothers you its a big deal!!!
    try and find a good dr. and get a good prescription and also mention about the nightmares, if no luck there seek out your own counsellor - i did mine over the internet as im not in my own native speaking country and it really help clean out my dusty old head of the bad stuff and let in the light and i felt so much better - i never beleived in them either as i know myself better than anyone so who can help - all they did was show me the right paths and the right questions to get rid of years of rubbish. money well spent!!!
    goodluck and try and get a good nights sleep. i will be wishing you the best!!!

    Please tell us what you're going through.
    I'd like to hear your story because I have a feeling you don't have many people you can talk to.
    There are people out there who can understand; it may not seem like it right now b/c of your immediate environment but you found this forum. And so did I. And, it has helped me from feeling so isolated. I think it can help you, too.
    Hang in there. :hugtackles:

    i, too, had terrible nightmares. mine were of me being a child and being violently raped. i had them every night. sleeping pills didn't help.

    my doc prescribed propanalol for the nightmares. it's used for ptsd. you don't stop dreaming, it just dulls the emotional connect you feel to the dream. you can have the dream but wake up okay.

    google it and see if your doctor will prescribe. it's specifically for nightmares so it might help.
