Nightmare - July 9th 2013, 11:17 PM

I am really confused as to why this is happening again but I am having this nightmare again I haven't had it since I left school about 6-7 weeks ago but it's suddenly its come back the same one every night and all my friends and my boyfriend who have slept in the same room as me say I have been making strange noises and moving around in a way that isn't really normal I am fidgety but I am told that I will curl into someone and start crying and whimpering like a dog.... I have a feeling my unusual sleeping habits are to do with the fact that I have a nightmare to do with me being raped murdered and then I get to see my funeral I have an idea what might have caused the rape part and that is sexual abuse that has happened but what I really want to know is... are there ways to help you not have nightmares? If anyone has any ideas they would be greatly appreciated.

I don't know if it'll help at all and you might want to look into professional help or academic psychology books. I'm sure the library is full of them, but maybe try and create an environment before you sleep of safeness and serenity. Perhaps if there's a smell that calms you like a loved ones perfume, or an essential oil (Lavender oil is always a safe bet). Also calming music and I used to be able to make myself have vivid imaginations before I slept so my imagination (which I could control) would merge into my actual dream so I could kind of decide what I would dream about.

However this is just a short term answer and like I said if it carries on maybe look into other lines of help.

Also can you think of anything that's happened that could have triggered these? Leaving school is quite a big thing and you might be dealing with the idea of leaving friends/teachers/your comfortable environment.

I'm sorry this is happening and I hope you find an answer.
