A few days ago I had also a nightmare where everybody was trying to kill me... When I finally woke up I was in total survivalmode and having flashbacks. If anyone can give me some advice or something on this issue? Because I've been having nightmares as long as I can remember. Next week my first EMDR session is plannen and I am looking forward to it, because I hope it will help with my CPTSD & PTSD. Thank you for this website and all the supporters. I feel not alone anymore, healing through this.I know I’m really stressed when I start having nightmares again. My BF had to wake me up twice last night. Someone was trying to kill me. They were hurting me. Scaring me. I was offering them money to stop.
Then I thought I saw my cat and started saying “kitty kitty” in a little kids voice in the dream. I thought I was saying it out loud but I guess I was just making loud noises. Either way saying that seemed to shift things.
IWhen I am alone my cat wakes me from bad deans by meowing in my face until I wake up. I felt like “kitty kitty” was the safe word for wake up.
