I need some help here, having messed up dreams.

Hey guys, normally I don’t tend to ask help on the forums but today is an exception because there are two things that have been bothering the hell out of me for a long time. Ive tried ignoring them, but they have reached a point where I have decided to turn to not only for help from my online friends, but also to the community. I’ll sort it out.


For the past couple of days now, I haven’t been sleeping well. I have been having some pretty messed up nightmares lately. If anyone asks, this has been going for on about 2-4 weeks from now. I have no idea why I am having some of the craziest dreams. Most of them have been pretty messed up. More messed up than anything crazy from Japan, these dreams I am having are on the borderlines from nightmare fuel to high octane nightmare fuel. What the hell can I do to not have anymore messed up dreams? Its driving me crazy and im not even getting much sleep at night.

    This is the hardst thing to do.

    Seriously though... similar to others here, I think that sorting out the life stress is a good place to start. When I'm dealing with real-world stressful situations it tends to get into my dreams too (if I can even get to sleep in the first place).

    @Leplaya said: There is this one stalker who wont stop calling and txting the hell out of me.

    Block his/her number, or get a new one yourself. You don't have to put up with that stuff.

    @Leplaya said: Most of the things that my parents do makes me question why the hell I am their son since most of the acts they do annoy the hell out of me.

    This is pretty much what being young is about. ;)

    Not much to help there, besides looking forward to the day you can move out. Instead of letting the current situation get to you, try to use it as motivation to work hard at school/job/whatever so you can change it.

    @Leplaya said: I have to tolerate whenever the hell my nephew and niece come over because thats when the few times when my parents go from smart to stupid whenever they are babysitting the litter of brats that my dickheaded brother and his hippied wife produced.

    Figure out some strategies for these situations. E.g. stay out of their way as much as possible (even go to a friend's place or something), and just show up for the obligatory family meal.

    @Leplaya said: I usually have myself a glass of cold chocolate milk before I brush my teeth and call it a night.

    Try not having the milk for a few nights and see if it makes a difference.

  • I'm totally going to get flamed or trolled for saying this, but as a Christian, I seriously recommend prayng about it. Ask God to help you. Ask Him to watch over and protect you. Ask Him to send His angels to watch over and protect you. Just be be yourself and come right out and talk to Him about what you've got going on and ask Him to take care of you and be with you through it. Just talk to Him, He'll listen... and He'll respond.

    Seriously, it works. No joke.

    You’re not the only one.

    When I get nightmares, drink a couple cups of milk and down slices of toast. I sleep like a baby afterwards.

    If that doesn’t work for you, just remember whatever you see in your dreams can’t hurt you. Just know they aren’t real. Unless those nightmare involved a guy with a burnt-ass face.

  • Try plain milk before bed instead of chocolate milk, or just a glass of water. Vitamin B6 also sometimes messes up your dreams if you have too much of that late at night. I generally don't eat/drink anything but water within two hours before bedtime.

    Realize some things you just have to cope with as long as you live with your parents, but that hopefully won't be forever.

    Block the stalker as much as possible and do not respond to him/her. If he/she escalates to the point where you should call the police, then do that, and get a restraining order.

  • Burn some incense, meditate, and calm yourself. Look into learning how to lucid dream, if the problem persists.

    If all else fails, sacrifice three goats to Baldur and stay awake for three nights. Become nocturnal. Boil an egg in a sheep's stomach and wear an onion on your belt. Seek no further treatment.

    It came so natural to me I didn't know people had to learn how to lucid dream.

  • Punch coolsome in the face. You’ll sleep pretty good.

    Naaaah.

    Lucid dreaming is the best.
