So, I've been having really horrifying dreams, and I'm not sure why.
For example, the other night, I had a dream that I was kidnapped by someone dear and close to me. We'll just call her D. She drugged me, and when I woke up, I was tied down. Then someone else who is also dear and close to me, we'll call her R, stormed into the room with a gun and was threatening to shoot D. There was this whole conversation of why or why not to shoot her, and eventually it ended up that R shot a hole in the wall, right next to my face. I woke up shaking, and I can't get the images out of my head.
There have been more dreams similar to this recently, and I'm not sure what to do. I really don't want to keep having them, and I know that dreams aren't really controllable, but is there anything I could do? I really don't like waking up shaking or screaming.
I experienced trauma when I was around the age of 4, but I see no reason why that would suddenly and randomly affect me now.
Any ideas? :/
