And then I woke up.
I’m getting tired of having nightmares. My sleep is suffering, and it’s making me sad at night when I should be sleeping. The even more frustrating thing is that I’ve been having to get up around 3:30 AM or 4 for work, and the nightmares have been happening about an hour before.
I know it’s because the wedding is coming up and I’m worried about money. Because I have so many other things on my plate/mind at the moment.
I swear I’m going to invest in a dream catcher.
Last night I had a really strange nightmare that I was in the shower, on the phone with my mom. She was crying that we don’t have a relationship. I was showering with the door open because no one else lived there and all the sudden something jumped out of the attic trap door. It had legs like a monkey but I knew it was an alien. I then heard voices in the kitchen, talking about me. I called my mom in a panic, told her I was going to make a jump out my second floor bedroom window, and then ran out of the bathroom, and jumped out the window into the snow that was outside.
I felt my heart seem to stop, and I gasped because I couldn’t catch my breath. Thank God for Fiance..

That’s so scary!!! I recently had my first “zombie” dream. My own little sister was the zombie I was trying to run away from. It took place in our old house, and I ran over to the neighbours to hide.
I woke up actually thinking this was real. So scary!
I use to have a reoccuring dream about my grandmother (who had already passed away) and I being locked in the Sears public bathroom. Every.single.night. for a year. Then it stopped!
I hope you can get through the nights…I have no advice on how to do so though 🙁

This is not be the best medical advice out there but alcohol does wonders for a good night sleep, just don’t over do it 😉

A friend was having these symptoms and was later diagnosed with sleep apnea…

A patient that suffers from depressed breathing during sleep should skip the alcohol. Sleep apnea is a possibility. See a doctor if you have insurance, meanwhile/otherwise try some youtube yoga to help de-stress you.
Do you always have breathing difficulties when you have nightmares? Or is that just the recent one?

If they are happening about an hour before you wake up set an alarm for about 2 hours before your normal time have a glass of water and go back to sleep. Sometimes changing up your sleep pattern can help. Good luck!

Ibuprofen PM is my BFF when I can’t sleep (usually muscle soreness/achey).
There are also some natural/herbal sleep-helpers.
I have no expert advice, but I hope the alien-monkey-attack dreams stop and you get some consistent sleep!
