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!
