I am so sorry, that sounds like a really rough situation to be in. What calming methods have you tried? Medication and therapy are great but they can only go so far. I would reccomend exploring a couple of different types like guided meditation or glitter jars.

Ugh, what a crappy situation. I couldn’t even imagine. ๐Ÿ™ If they’ve physically harmed you, could you get a restraining order? I know that they do very little to protect the victim but atleast maybe it would deter them from contacting you.

I’m sorry you’re going through this ๐Ÿ™  It does take some time, but you’re taking the right steps. Talk to Darling Husband, talking it out with someone who understands can really help.
Have you thought about moving further away? I know it’s extreme, but it may put you more at ease.

Oh no….

What a terrible situation.

Please, talk to your Darling Husband about this.

You really DO need to talk to somebody about this.

You should not have yo live in fear.

Please, pm me any time if you just need to vent.

Are you still in therapy? I think that would be a really important thing to continue. I was in an abusive relationship and it took me years to quit having the nightmares (it actually didn’t stop until he passed away). Looking back I wish I would have talked with someone and not let it haunt me for so long.

This is a symptom of PTSD and from what you’ve experienced, it could indeed be possible that this is what you are going through. Are you seeing a therapist? Perhaps you could bring this up with them. Having a correct diagnosis to work with is really helpful. I’m not saying this is what you have or if you have anything at all but it’s worth checking out with a professional.

If your dh is on board , you could serve them with a do not contact ( there’s a name for this but it’s 4 am…) and a restraining order. Bacivky it’s a leave us the f alone ortYour go to jail. 

Also is there a victims resource center near you? While most of those cases are sexual and domestic cases, they have support groups that might help. Hugs!!!

You are stronger than you think. You will get through this. These nightmares will stop soon.

Say a small prayer before you go to bed.

Meditate, do yoga DAILY. At least 30 mins.

Try to do yard work, working out or anything that will exhaust you. This sleep from exhaustion barely catches any dreams/nightmares, etc.

Inform your local police station abt this. So INCASE they were to come over and start arguments and you had to call the polic, they would know what the eff is going on and can provide better assistance to you.

Try and get a restraining order. You will feel ‘safer’.
