Recent therapy and now nightmares - scared to sleep

I’m right now hiding in the bathroom because every time I try to sleep I start remembering trauma/ my body floods with terror and I share a bed. Anyhow wondering if anyone has any methods that help with sleep and how to deal with nightmares. Feel like I’m just processing too much at once from daily/relationship/long term stressors. Hope everyone is hanging in there and sending everyone love.

This is very possible. Therapy is very often a bit of a dance, because we have to constantly readjust what we're working on to accommodate both how we're coping, and the curveballs that life throw at us. Our stress cup can only handle so much.

It's worth talking to your therapist about this, and perhaps spend some time getting that stability back.

It may also be worth talking to a doctor or psychiatrist, because there's medications that can be used to help with nightmares.
