A few hours ago, at about 2 am, my boyfriend woke me from a dream I was having because I was crying or whimpering very loudly in my sleep.
I was dreaming about something terrifying. There was a witch wearing a mask I saw in an episode of Dr. Who. A disembodied voice. A time machine. A friend who faked her death. A body in the trunk of a car.
Hours later, I still can’t get back to sleep so I’m searching for an explanation.
I went to bed feeling very anxious. I also ate a dinner full of dairy and wheat, both recommended I avoid per my doctor’s instructions. I also watched a particularly dark episode of Battlestar Gallactica before going to bed.
I’ve been dreaming a lot about unsuccessful time travel recently. In my dream world, traveling through time is possible, but I’m very bad at it.
I think this most recent nightmare explores the consequences of not being able to go back in time. The consequences are apparently severe in my dreams.
What do you suggest for sleepless nights? Any go-to remedies I should try?
