Please can someone help me, I've been struggling with nightmares for about 8 months, mainly to do with the past, ex boyfriends and my dad are usually involved in houses i used to live in. Lately the nightmares have been getting worse and worse, including dealing with death. In all cases I'm in the middle of a horrible or uncomfortable situation. The other night I had to hide my ex boyfriends dead body under tarpaullin incase anyone found it.
I thought I've dealt with the past but there's something I haven't dealt with and it's affecting my daily life as I'm not getting enough sleep and keep waking up about 3 times a night in horror every night.
Can anyone help ? Ive been to see a hypnotherapist and said i wanted help with past issues at childhood but she said, "I dont need with the past only the future" and proceeded to tell me to imagine myself in a time line ahead of today. So I'm back to square one. I can't imagine going to a doctor and saying I need help with nightmares. No one is taking me seriously but its starting to affect my health.
Thanks in advance.
