What are good ways to stop having continuous nightmares about my trauma? Lately they’ve only gotten worse and now I’m struggle to just exist as a person when I’m awake.

      Have you tried any of the medicines they recommend for that? Mine really helped! For me, when I got up, I wrote down the dream, and then notated parts that didn’t make sense, just so I could remind myself it was over and not real.

      I can relate. You can get through this. You are resilient! You can try writing down your dreams then burn it and tell yourself I release old wounds so that I can attract new love 🦋

      My best recommendation, create a healthy and easy bedtime routine. Wash your face, brush your hair and your teeth, read a book, meditate; Anything can help. Start by doing things that relax you, then try to avoid doing anything that may make you think of anything traumatic. If you have tried this, you may wish to talk with a sleep specialist, doctor, or psychiatrist. Therapy helped with my nightmares big time. Don’t forget that talking it out can help PTSD.
