    Reoccurring nightmare
    An_266709 posted:
    I have been having reoccurring nightmares about spiders. I wake up and jump out of bed + I can feel my heart is racing. I am unable to sleep for the rest of the night in my room and sleep on the lounge. They started about 6 months ago and I believe it is related to stress due to an impending really nasty court case in a couple of months where I will be a witness. As the court date moves closer the frequency has been increasing.
