Overwhelming Grief

Postby Harmony54 » Mon Jan 21, 2019 1:18 pm

My sleepwalking started when I was 5 or 6. As an adult I was often awakened out of a terror and asked "what happened to you to make you dream like that" only to say I didn't know because I had no idea what I had dreamed. Fast forward and I have all of the above, plus I jump out of bed screaming from time to time, but don't remember why. 7 years ago I got a little dog as a support dog and she has trained herself to wake me out of those dreams that get "out of hand" (her words lol) and she WILL NOT STOP until I come completely awake and stay up for a while. Then we do it again.
A couple of years back things changed a bit. Since then, when I start to enter the waking state and get out of the dream state, a battle ensues. I don't know whether I really want to wake up or really wanted to NOT wake up. I started to be aware of a feeling of intense grief. I still don't remember the dreams themselves, but boy do I feel that grief!
I have taken medications to help me sleep but they've generally been more of a problem. Some make me jump out of bed and scream, as I said, and some have made me have some nasty hallucinatory "dreams". That medication only lasted 2 nights. It seems my sleep disturbances are getting worse as I get older. Is this a natural part of aging, or am I missing something here?
