Hey, wondering if anyone has been having hyper vivid/realistic dreams and nightmares from a young age?
Ive just started having nightmares recently. In my dream i had 2 kids and i was laying on their bedroom floor so they could go to sleep, and about 5-6 dark figures pinned me down and started to surround me and going in circles. when i told me husband about this he had mentioned i was seeing shadow people. and i was doing research on it and now its all i think about. before that dream i had 3 others with those "shadow people" in it. has anyone experienced anything like this...?
I went to a mental hospital for the first time last month and now I keep having dreams where I go back, I know I'm in the dream and I control some of it but I can't control all of it. last night I had a dream where we had to move hospitals 10 hours away for some reason and I would never get to see my family, I wake up panicking and I don't know how to make them stop
since I've tried basically every therapy and it hasn't worked, I'm deciding to experiment a little bit. I know that as my maladaptive daydreaming decreases, the frequency and severity of my nightmares increases. therefore, I'm getting back into old hyperfixations that I had as a wee autistic. so far it's working. no nightmares whatsoever. I might even get into another game that could help if I end up liking it. I think this is really interesting and I'm wondering if I should gather some data from others who have had the same experience as me. if we can instead learn to control our daydreaming and sort of microcose on it, maybe nightmares would cease. I know many others who have this condition are also very creative people, so i think art therapy and maybe role-playing games like dungeons and dragons would be useful. I'll keep yall updated on this but I would also love to hear your experiences!!
