    Exciting News for WebMD Members!

    We've been busy behind the scenes building new message boards for you. You'll have new and easier ways to find messages, connect with others, and share your stories.

    And, this will all be available on your smartphone or other mobile device!

    What Do You Need to Do?

    The message board you're used to will be closing in the coming weeks. While many of your boards will be making the move to our new home, your posts will not. Want to keep a discussion going? Save posts you want to continue (this includes your member profile story), so that you can re-post them in the new message boards.

    Troubled Sleep TRIGGER?
    WolfFaerie posted:
    [TRIGGER] I've been having trouble sleeping either I'm sleeping all day or sleeping too little. I've been taking naps lots and lots of naps though they seem to help don't do much for my state of mind.
    I've been dreaming/seeing flashes of violence lots and lots of violence. For me, it's always rivers of blood that I'm drowning in over and over again. Also seeing flashes of Black Haired Man which don't help at all. Cuz if I'm seeing him it means bad things are coming and there is no way of stopping it.I don't like thinking writing or feeling about HIM at all. Nothing good ever happens around HIM which in some ways has me afraid to go to sleep at nite.
    I don't want to have to medicate my sleep so that I can sleep. I've done it in the past but it leaves me more sleepy and unfunctioning in my daily life. Any thoughts or ideas would greatly be appreciated. Thanks so much!

    I wish I could help, as I know too well what you are going through. When things head that direction, I start writing a lot. Mostly I just try to change my thought processes all day and hope for no dreams. (If I recall a dream, then is is a bad dream. I never recall good ones.)

    I'll listen if you need to talk.

    Thinking happy thoughts for you.
    WolfFaerie replied to ttsmile's response:
    Thanks for the advice! I'll just have to keep writing everything out. One of the reasons, I came back to the boards is for the support and great advice that I always got from members.
    Trying for more happy thoughts and good dreams too!
