    Kind of don't feel the best physically and had a bad night last night but not because of dreams (did dream of that man again but it was 'fuzzier' than before if that makes sense). The other night freaked me out when he trapped me on a train and tried to kill me but i got over it in the morning :hugs:
    how are you doing lovely? :lovehug: <3 x
    Watched any horror films recently? Read any? Heard about any? Seen a trailer?

    Nope. Nope. Well only about someone being run over with a drive on lawn mower but that was afterwards and no.
    This is the thing that bothers me, all the things I dream are not really influenced by my surroundings anymore (for instance i dont have those school dreams because even though i dreamt i got dissected on a school canteen table once it was roughly based in a real life environment if that makes sense whereas this is totally from my own 'imagination' :/) x

    Omgosh. Have you been attacked in real life? Or it is one of your worst fears? I'm so sorry to hear that. It's one of the reasons I don't like sleepin.

    How are you feeling emotionally? :jumphug:

    It's almost impossible to fall a sleep with the thought and worry of looming assessments and exams. Have experienced that a couple of dozen times

    Kind of yes (been grabbed etc and had things thrown at me) but that isn't why I dream about it because im not scared of the person who used to do it anymore
    and not really, death isn't actually one of my fears (fantasise about it quite a lot ) so i dont understand why the dreams scare me i think it is about control. I dream about trains not stopping a lot and feelings of out of control because i need to be in control of my surroundings i.e i could change them if i felt the need which is why i hate any form of transport other than walking bc im not in control and it makes me anxious
    how are you lovely? :puppyeyes: xx

    Maybe because you can't control what is happening to you in the dreams? And you're not controlling your own "death"

    Fantasise about dying? **** honey is there anything I can do to help you? Or if you wanted to talk?

    That is a very good point lovely hadn't thought of that tbh, but now you say it that makes sense x
    yeh mostly because in relation to the whole control thing, that is the one thing that a person can control (usually), how they die so when things upset me i think about that because when everything else is going wrong that is the one thing i can theoretically do to be in control again if that makes sense not that I would actually do it but it is the thought of 'i could if i wanted to'
    are you going to tell me how you are now? :lovehug: xxx

    Yeah maybe? I don't know tbh honey. But maybe getting out of your comfort zone a bit and becoming more understanding of the control bit might help? Does that make sense?

    Sorry, I'm good at listening but not advice :lol:

    And I'm glad you don't want to do it! Because the world and TSR would be a dismal place with Anon#8

    Yeh that makes sense, i try to stay away from home a bit more or take the bus places because that helps with the control. I try to repress the stress and anxiety of not being in control of my own whereabouts etc and having to rely on people and it is slowly getting a little better used to have a massive fear of being abandoned (still do really) so i always take money etc and plot in my head how i could get back if i was which is stupid but helps. Ik that i would never ever be abandoned but it is just paranoia so stupid lol
    awww no lovely, tbh i prefer people listening rather than advice because often i just need to express things that i cant really inrl
    well i wouldnt go that far i would want to do it but i wouldnt actually do it if that makes any sense whatsoever

    No worries. I managed about 5 hours sleep for each weekday last week - but then, I had no choice because work is work. Plus it helps (work, that is), after I get home I'm mentally exhausted (even though I still manage to screw it up by not sleeping till around 02:00)... on the weekends however it gets bad because I don't do much and end up staying awake until I force myself to sleep on the Sunday night - kinda like right now, I should probably try and sleep but it's not gonna happen till at least a couple more hours. I've set my alarm to 08:00 for tomorrow.

    In emergencies, I do have benzodiazepines to temporarily fix my sleeping pattern in order to get into a routine.

    How about you?

    Maybe put yourself in positions when you have limited control and then try to work yourself out of the situations?

    Actually no. That's stupid :lol:

    Yep I don't do advice! Haha.

    Honey, you can express to me anytime anyplace whenever you want.
