I had this happen a few times to me and it just happened last night too, its kinda of scary and I wanted to know if anyone experiences this and if so, why you think you have this happen, if you seeked help for it and what they said or maybe its really nothing at all and I am just being paranoid maybe?

Well...for the last few nights... I keep dreaming of men who want to murder me, I mean in a very brutal way, with knives and etc..chasing me, one caught me and his finger nails were little blades, I was bleeding and pleading for him to stop hurting me...if this was not bad enough, last night, I went to sleep and all the sudden my eyes flew open so fast and my mouth clenched down and it was like my whole body went into shock...I think, but am not sure it was from a dream, I have a feeling it is but I am not sure the fear of what suddenly woke me, like a volt of electicity going through me and forcing my eyes to fly open like that my mouth to smash down so hard....what is this? Does anyone know?

It is probably not going to get better, since my hubby went back out of town again to work, I get scared being alone...I always had this problem since I was young, being alone and feeling scared...thanks.

This sounds serious enough to take to a medical professional for counseling. I would definitely address it and get some relief.

I used to wake up at 3am every morning due to stress at school. My dentists noticed my sleep problem from my teeth patterns. (I didn't tell them about the wake ups.) They made me a customized night guard. I have never had problems waking up in the middle of the night every time I wear it to sleep. Sometimes in the morning I would remember having bad dreams but I also remember feeling assured and not scared uncontrollably. My dentists also tell me that when I get used to it, I would know myself when I feel I need to use it. They were right.

I have had scary dreams similar to what you describe. Being chased, falling, someone coming after me....I chalk it up to anxiety dreams in what is happening in my waking life.

Usually when I either talk about it or journal...just really acknowledge what I am feeling about my current situation and get it off my chest - it seems to take the edge off and the dreams typically subside.

That's my experience ~

thanks for the help guys...it went away...maybe I just needed to talk bout it, in order for that to happen...alot of my dreams are fear based, being chased, being poisoned and attempted murder...

I know why...would be odd for me to not have these kind of dreams...I have very VIVID dreams, they seem very real to me and they always been violent and odd ever since I was young...

I would seek help but my insurnace does not pay for a counselor and we make too much money..go figure that one out, but its not in my reach, I wish it were...

that is why I am here, thanks again guys!

BFG,

I don't know what's available in your area but you may want to do more digging. I went to someone and they charged on a sliding scale. Or you may want to dig into your pocket because it's completely worth it.

I can't dig out 100 dollars an hour..that is my discounted price! We live on one income, thats good but we have ALOT of bills, we manage cause I shop at thrift stores and watch what i spend....cause we make too much in the eyes of most, we get no siiding scale rate, we pay our bills back and then we are broke except for what we need pretty much...there is no where to dig and there is not help for us, middle class gets shit these days....

Hi Bfg,

I have bad dreams, usually when I am having a lot of stress. When my Mom passed away, I could not sleep well at all, and I was having a lot of violent dreams with my ex-husband in them...doing things to me that he had done in the past to me in real life.

After a while, when I was able to sleep better, the dreams lessened.

But when I have stress that comes up, I have bad dreams, and they always have him in them.

I hope someday that I will not have these bad dreams about him anymore. We've been apart for over 3 years.

(((Chinadoll))) I am sorry...I know that feeling...I have had this all my life. I never thought of this as being stressed induced. Makes sense...it could very well be.
When my dreams aren't violent...they are usually very vivid and symbolic...its like something is trying to tell me things...something has to be in these for me...have no idea what but I feel they happen for a reason...

Hey BFG,

Are you still having these bad dreams? (Been wondering.)

I hope that they have subsided a bit for you.

I also hope that I am not hijacking this thread when I share about a recent dream of mine.

Wasn't a full-fledged dream per se, as I wasn't really completely 'under' ~ more like a semi-dream state. In-between wake and sleep (which is probably why I remember so many details.)

Anyway, if you don't mind me sharing, here is what went down:

I am on a street, a city block actually, where all of these parking meters are lined up facing the street.

My car is parked waaaaaaay at the other end from where I am standing....and where I am standing is in front of the parking meters for my parents' antique cars which is in front of a restaurant.

So, OK. Now, the thing is, rarely do I ever put quarters in my own meter. (For some reason or another, the meter people don't seem to canvas towards that end - where my car is at....) ~ but every once in awhile I do throw a couple of quaters in my way.

Like, if I have a roll of quarters - 40 quarters for $10.00......I would say that I have been putting in say, 36 quarters in their meters leaving only 4 for mine that I throw my own way every once in awhile.....like symbolically throwing myself a bone or some crumbs.

So, as I am putting more quarters in their meters, (facing the street) I see something moving from the corner of my right eye. I turn and it is a tow-truck hauling off my car!!!

I turn to my left looking over my shoulder.....and my parents are sitting in the restaurant, right up front in the window watching me this whole time nestled all snug and cozy with a nice meal in front of them just sitting there, watching me.....put MY money in THEIR meters!!!!!!!!!!!!

(Doesn't take Freud to figure that one out!)

So, in homage to that dream, I have rolled a pack of quarters and have them sitting just beneath by computer screen as a reminder to keep
'investing in myself' rather than on them.....and NOT eventually end up completely 'spent' like my sister who is now 6-feet under.

(I even went so far as to place little stickers on this roll of quarters: A butterfly, A little Blue Bird (of happiness) A sun & A heart.)

I posted this on another site and one very intelligent, insightful person said that this reminded me her of the "Stockholm Syndrome."

Stockholm what?

I did some research on this...and Oh My Gosh! It was incredible!!!!

It was so enlightening to me. The dynamics observed in this Stockhome Syndrome by the hostages.

So then, I researched it a bit more. Googled: "Stockhom Syndrome Domestic Violence", "Stockholm Syndrome PTSD", "Stockholm Syndrome Childhood Abuse" and was absolutely astonished as to the results.

I was like....WOW! Finally! It all makes sense to me now!!!!!

I finally make sense.....TO ME!

(I would provide links, but to tell you the truth, there are too many to list.)

So anyway, my apologies for temporarily turning this thread into something about me.

(It's just that....if you can relate to my dream, then you can probably gleen something incredibly insightful and beneficial from researching this Stockholm Syndrome for yourselves......)
