How do you deal with horrible dreams that leave you drained & get to you?

I’ve been having lots of bad dreams this past year that were just unbelievable. The scenarios were just the most unimaginable fear-provoking and insane things ever, and I often wake up and just feel depressed just from the dream alone.

Why am I getting these kinds of dreams frequently and what can I do about them to handle them? They ARE just dreams but they still really get to me. It feels like “night torture”.

  1. one word: stress. usually running helps, but if it persists, there’s no shame in seeking professional help.

  2. stress triggers dreams. Maybe you could look up the dreams at, that is a good site. Sylvia Browne’s Book of Dreams explains the different kinds of dreams and what your dreams might mean to you. Even if you are not a fan of hers, this is a good book. I suffer from nightmares, so I pray that God protect me while I sleep and if I have bad dreams that he helps me forget them when I wake up. Peace be with you.

  3. I have been having them too the other day i woke up. no one was home i couldnt leave me room i was so scared i was anxtious. and was thinking people were watching me took a while for me to get over it. seemed so real.
