I started having "nightmares" about 5 years ago after I tried a new medication for my Epilepsy. There is no way of knowing if it was connected with the drug or not, I stopped taking it after three months and the dreams continue. And now I HATE sleeping. I never want to go to bed for the fear of what I might dream.
It's not that I dream of monsters and the end of the world (if only!) it's more about every day situations that makes me extremely stressed or uneasy. Leaving me to wake up feeling the same.
My therapist let me write down all my dreams, or as much as I remember from them (which is a lot) and the more I talk about them or try to understand them, the more sense they actually make.
Some of the things that keeps coming back in my dreams is that I'm being delayed by things that I have no control over. Usually there's a small flood coming at the same time. There is no way of describing how frustrating and stressful that is.
The flood in my case would not be that I'm packed with things to do, for me its an overflow of emotions.
Being delayed, a sense that time is running out, time is being wasted and I feel like I have no control over it.
Those are just a few easy examples, I've got soooo many!
It gets easier to deal with it, once you've figured it out.
