I had one of the most tormented night that I can remember. No matter what I attempted to do and stop the nightmare didn’t work. I tried everything: getting out of bed to change my t-shirt which was soaked, had a glass of water, looked at my blog to try to shift my mind to something positive, nothing worked.
The demons and gargoyles went at it non stop. I woke up twice screaming and also fell out of bed as I was fighting somebody. The nightmare was so real and is still fresh in my mind and managed to shift my mood to negative. I guess I can take one positive aspect out of this which is that I found a new trigger.
I am very puzzled as to why it lasted for so long and what precipitated it?Yesterday was a pleasant day without any problems with anything or anybody. I didn’t notice anything in the nightmare that was related to a recent problem or trauma.
I, really am at a loss as to why. I vaguely remember one of my shrinks telling me that only recurring dreams or nightmares have a meaning. Each has to be dissected and analysed individually.
Can anybody explain to me the dreaming and nightmare process? And confirm or not whether what my doctor had told me is accurate?
Thank you in advance for your help.
Peace and serenity
