Nightmares

I'm twenty-three years old and still have nightmares.

Last night it was that a spider, a big one, jumped out of my doona covers. I immediately sat up and grabbed my phone so I could search for the spider. By now I'm wide awake, my heart is racing and it's nearly 2am.

I eventually fall back asleep.

I dislike my nightmares. That was a little nightmare in comparison to others.

Do you still have nightmares? Or did they stop when you hit a certain age?

I still have them. That and my tendency to sleep walk and talk apparently makes it quite humourous for my husband. I also find that I have them more when I am stressed out.

I have nightmares when I overheat in my sleep. Without fail. My husband never understands why I feel the need to go to bed in the middle of winter, with all the windows open and fans on- I'm terrified of the nightmares that happen when I overheat.

You are not alone!
