(I think PTSD is considered a neaurotic disorder? also, I an not diagnosed, but I am pretty sure I have it or C-ptsd) is frequent nightmares part of trauma by any chance? I can't stop having nightmares, haven't since my first trauma experience. it's always about the same two things, well most of the time. I feel like I'm going crazy.

    Nightmares are very common with PTSD! I get nightmares and night terrors from my trauma. Also PTSD is a condition you can specifically select on here. You’re not crazy, but traumatised and that’s really hard. I’m proud of you for surviving ❤️

    Thank you unluckyunicorn. I did indeed select it but I remember that one or two of the diagnoses I selected grouped because they were better known or something. Which is good. But terrible for my memory problems lmao.

    UnluckyUnicorn put it very well. Yes, nightmares are a very common psychological response to trauma. If possible I recommend looking into different forms of therapy and coping mechanisms. Unsure if it will help, but perhaps try a weighted blanket? It may help your brain feel more secure when you’re asleep and aid in calming the mind and body before bedtime. Definitely helps me!

    Yup, I’m in the same boat. Weed can help you dream less if you smoke but tbh i still dream and have nightmares. But maany ppl lose their dreams until they get it out of their system. It also could be a side effect of some meds, or if you’re sleeping somewhere you don’t feel safe
