Nightmares and Insomnia (and swearing!)



I can't fucking sleep! I feel as though I am living out "A Nightmare On Elm Street", and that Freddy Krueger is nipping at my heels. I don't want to go to sleep because of the nightmares I have, but I'm so fucking tired that I can hardly keep my eyes open. Shit!

I drink to numb the pain, and to try to go to sleep, but it doesn't work anymore, nor is it a healthy method of coping! I know this! It doesn't actually make any sense for me to not want to fall asleep, yet drink to try to sleep. I know it's fucked up, but that's my reality right now.

I'm getting really tired right now, and know that Freddy is on his way. Ugh!

Perhaps you could try an App called Calm.  It has sleep stores for adults, and it’s so soothing that after the first few nights, I rarely hear the end of the stories anymore. And now that I’m familiar with the stories, I’ve started to dream about them.

If you can’t get the app, you could record your own stories to listen to. 

Another option is hypnosis. You can get a session online for sleeping, and they include suggestions for happy dreams. This trains the subconscious to focus on better memories when asleep. Just google for sleep hypnosis and nightmares.

i really hope you find something that helps.
