I've decided there must be something wrong in my subconsciousness. I constantly have really bad dreams. The last one I told you about was humorous but also quite violent. Violence and death seem to be my dream theme as of late. I constantly have dreams that someone is trying to kill me, and I have to run away. Sometimes I dream that I am the scary one. The other night I dreamed I was a murderer, and the night before that I turned into a monster (or something else really scary - I couldn't see myself) right in front of my niece. It scared her and she started crying. I was only trying to hug her, but my appearance scared her half to death. Last night I had a dream that my husband divorced me and wanted to marry one of my best friends. (That one had a happy ending though, thankfully. He changed his mind and got back with me in the end.) Sometimes I wake up in the middle of the night needing to piddle, but I am just too scared to get out of bed (at which point I make Mark get out of bed and walk to the bathroom to turn on the light for me, or else I start crying (I'm totally serious about that)).
Do you constantly have dreams that scare you? Or is it just me? Does anyone know any "mother tricks" to help me have better dreams more often? It makes the days a lot harder when I don't get very good sleep. It's a good thing I don't have kids, or I would be one cranky mama.
