I read on Jeanie's blog that she was having nightmares. I wonder if i beats mine? I had such a bad dream the other night that I had to switch on the light and wait till I wake up fully and reality to kick back in. I dreamt that my head was being chopped off by the wings of an helicopter and that I was still alive to see my face covered in blood and staring at my hands wondering why I'm still standing. And before I woke up I remember thinking that this must be out of a "Final Destination" movie although I've only seen bits and pieces of them.
I have nightmares so easily that I need to stay the Hell away from horror films and sad realities. That would give me sleepless nights too easily.
I call nightmares the bloodshed and fear
I call bad dreams the emotional torture
As a kid I remember so many sleepless nights thinking of ghosts, skeletons, aliens (like in the movie) and snakes... i had so many sleepless nights that my mom bought therapy sessions with a sophrologist (a sleep doctor) and he really helped. after ten sessions with him i managed to find some restful sleep. not stressing over the fact that it was four o'clock in the morning and that I was still awake and needed to be up fresh and bright in three hours for school. on the nights when I managed to actually fall asleep I would wake up at 5 am with horrible nightmares that would keep me awake till dawn. i slept well for the last 10 years, now they're back with a vengeance... the nightmares and the bad dreams. blood, snakes, evil, love, pain. it sucks.
