On Sunday night I was worried about a few things which kept me up, but with the help of a plushie, I did manage to get to sleep not too late.
Then at 2:30 I wake suddenly after a dream, not overly unusual in itself, except for the fact however much I try I can't remember a single thing about the dream that woke me up. This would be the norm for most people, but I always remember something about my dream, especially if it wakes me up.
Now I try to get back to sleep but there's something blocking me from doing so. (This is going to sound odd if you've never had anything like it) The block seemed to be a memory that was worrying me, yet however much I tried to probe what it was, it always stayed out of reach.
This may be jumping to conclusions here, and in a way I'd prefer it if I was, but is it possible that it was indeed a memory I was hiding from myself for some reason?
My thinking was that the dream must have triggered it, enough for me to realise it was there, but then it still managed to hide itself again (and seemingly hide the dream too so that the link couldn't crop up again)
Again, I may not be right here, but if it is a repressed memory then has anybody had any experience with these? I'm just worried I suppose that it's some kind of trauma (or even abuse, but I really hope not) that happened when I was a child.
Sorry, if I seem slightly paranoid but I hope you can understand my concern.
