Rebecca asked 11 years ago

Right now I am currently experiencing nightmares and I am seeing my family and close friends die in new and brutal ways each time. This has been going on for almost 13 years…its getting to the point where I can no longer sleep through the night. I am desperate. Please help find a way to stop these dreams.

Vivid nightmares can sometimes be the body’s way of processing trauma that has occurred in the past. Speaking to a therapist may help resolve past issues that have not yet been properly processed. It could also be a sign of mental illness. It would be best to explore the details of the dreams that are occurring with a therapist. I would suggest making an appointment with one of our counselors to help you with the issue that you are experiencing.
