I suffer from insomnia so a good nights sleep is very important to me. I’ve been on sleeping meds for 20 years.
The only problem is every night I have disturbing nightmares and after having them repeatedly I say f@#k it and wake at 4am and nap during the day.
I have a stress free life thanks to my wife, kids and meds. I had a trouble free childhood. No trauma. Generally happy with my environment. Apart from sz which is medicated properly and eliminating all stresses and triggers I don’t know what to do.
I’m waking several times each night with a cold sweat and a brief memory of the nightmare which can be repetitive or random.
