Wicked Nightmares - October 21st 2010, 08:22 PM

Well, maybe they aren't that wicked. But I don't have nightmares too often, but they've suddenly started occuring nearly every night. Nightmares by order (that I can remember). And my theories for why I had them will be in bullets underneathe.

1.) My molester summons us back to our old home and requests that he allows him to pay me $50,000 for doing the stuff he did to me, because he felt guilty. I refused (not because I'm a bad person, but because I only need an apology)
  • I feel bad for having a tough sex drive and it makes me feel dirty- like I'm just like him. And I also want him to live a happy life and not feel guilty about it- but I have no way of knowing how he is, nor am I sure I really want to know.

2.) My little cousin had heavy pictures topple on top of him and he died. I felt guilty because it could have been prevented and then I started reflecting on how guilty I felt about being so mean to my grandma 2 of the four years before she died (it was because of my parents divorce and her involvement in it).
  • I might have jealousy issues. But it's more likely because I feel guilty for things that have happened and I really don't want anyone to die right now, since my grandma died just 10 months ago.
3.) Dream that my grandpa got a simple disease and died. In that same dream I dreamed that this guy was watching all of my animals and he let them go, because he didn't believe in 'caging' or 'chaining'. I had to hunt all of them down (unsuccessfully)
  • My grandma died 10 months back and I'm always afraid that my grandpa is going to die, I'm not sure how I would handle another death right now. And some times when I'm mad or anxious I wish people would die (I hate that.)
  • My neighbor hates my dogs and I'm always worried that he'll find a way to get them taken away; I'm also afraid of my dogs getting out of the yard and never being able to find them.
Ugh. I think there were more dreams, but I can't recall them at the moment. They just make me feel bad and I don't know what to do about them.

Hey there.
I know that nightmares are rough and can be really realistic sometimes. One of the best things I think you can do is to just remind yourself that they aren't real. They are just nightmares.
If you go to counseling, maybe you could discuss your nightmares with your counselor. I know in the past I did that and it was really helpful to talk about them. They might even have some more ideas on how to deal with them.
Hang in there!!

Great works are performed not by strength, but by perseverance.
PM me anytime <3
