Basically I think I've been having a reoccuring nightmare, but I'm not one hundred percent certain. I've just woken up because of it and can't get back to sleep. I feel stupid admitting that I'm scared because of a dream but I really am. I believe it's reoccuring because when I woke up I really thought it was but now I'm starting to doubt myself, but I do remember when I was in the dream knowing what was coming but I couldn't change it.
I had issues woth nightmares when I was younger but I developed a technique to avoid them, and when I did have them I became aware that I was dreaming and was able to wake myself up (through a technique that someone in a dream told me about, it was quite strange).
Is there anything I can do about it, like ways to avoid it? When I was younger I avoided nightmares by repeating over in my head that I wasn't afraid of nightmares and nightmares weren't real, and it worked, and I still do it now although I can't remember if I did it last night or not.
I was going to type out the dream but I'm still pretty shook up about it, and honestly it sounds pretty silly, but if anyone thinks they can help based on the dream please say and I'll type it out. Thank you!
...Should I go back to school?
