The rape of Nanking as though I was there. Yes, I have stress nightmares. The other night it was Freddie Kruger killing an entire family. The day before that, I experienced sleep paralysis and saw a very unsettling looking old woman sitting next to my bed staring at me, and I kept saying, "you're not really there, you're not really there," and every time I said it, she nodded her head yes, as though saying, "yes, I am really here."
I've been having a bit of rough patch, and the stress always manifests itself in my dreams...plus, I'm getting off of a medication, and I'm wondering if this is not a very unfortunate side effect.
Oh, and I'm not crazy. I promise.
