Chronic Nightmares? How do I get rid of them?
Ever since I can remember, the majority of my dreams have been nightmarish, and I remember them around 5 times a week. I just woke up from a really nasty one involving young girls getting the life sucked out of them by me as a nasty vampire kid.
In all of them, I have the short end of the stick regardless of my role (good guy, bad guy, myself, someone else, Iron Man(no joke)). Also, in many of them I am being abandoned by my family or disappointing someone through my irresponsibility. In any dreams other than that, I just wake up in panic.
Do these dreams actually mean anything? How can I get rid of them and sleep easier? How can I calm myself down after them?
I don't want to live the rest of my life afraid of dreaming, but to me, all dreaming means is being degraded, embarrassed and terrified.
