A couple of months ago I wrote a blog about my ongoing battle with nightmares.
I'd been feeling pretty smug about things - hadn't had any bad ones for a while and even my sleep patterns seemed to have marginally improved - waking only two or three times in a night instead of the usual half dozen.
But, sadly, the dreams are back, and bigger and scarier than ever.
This is such a frustration for me. A friend described dreams as simple mental housekeeping. That makes the dreams seem less scary in retrospect, but gee I wish my brain could come up with a new processing system!
There are recurrent themes, in fact recurrent plots and characters - but none of it makes any sense.
I wouldn't mind, except that I HATE waking up feeling distressed and disoriented. (And as I've mentioned before, waking up this way on my own).
My readership has grown since my last post about this - maybe someone else can give me some insights?
