Almost weekly - I cry in my sleep and wake up crying.

I'm a 23 year old female. I had a fairly normal upbringing I would say. Was never beaten, hardly grounded, I was quiet and well behaved. I kept to myself even as a blossoming social child at the time. My mom is a drug addict and has been since before I was born. My dad is loving, but hard headed and tough to communicate with sometimes. I'm in a loving relationship. I have wonderful friends. I mean, besides the fact that I ran away from home when I was 17 (but safely made the desicion to return home 4.5-5 years later)

But since I can recall, I have had not exactly "night terrors" I hate to even call them nightmares. But they're extremely depressing. Almost all of my negative dreams consist of me either trying to be killed, chased (as a kid my first dream I remember was a man stabbing me at my elementary school, I woke up sitting up straight), I have lately had dreams that mostly are about my friends and boyfriend leaving me or simply making fun of me. Today I woke up and I was extremely upset, but was not crying, and after I woke up I was overwhelmed by emotion and I started crying. I had to call my mom because I just wanted to talk to her. I think I do have a lot of serious emotions I am not wanting to confront because right now there are more important things to do. One of my worst dreams that I had lately was so bad it depressed me for the entire day. I was mad at people and I was crying all day on and off. I felt like I was having a breaking point in my emotional state.

I do have an intense fear of being replaced, and I hate crying in front of anyone because I know I'm a strong girl. Does anyone else experience this to this extent? It has been more consistent in the last month however.. And this last month has been a little more rough. I'm just starting to worry because it's clearly not a good sign to be emotionally distraught in almost every dream you have almost every week? Waking up in tears? Or soon after just breaking down?

I think you may be suppressing negative feelings from your childhood and they are coming up in your dreams because deep down you are afraid that your friends are going to treat the way you were treated as a child.
