broken sleep?

woke up from a nightmare, feeling so scared and overwhelmed right now. i feel very young. like the young parts of me are activated. they are back there. and i am trying to pull them into the present. and it is not working very well. we are floaty and dissociative. feeling so scared and alone. i hate it when this happens. its 5 AM and nobodys up or awake only us. we’ve had very broken sleep tonight. its like this. lay down sleep for 2 hours. wake up. stay up an hour or there abouts. go back to bed, sleep for another 2 hours. repeat. do others experience this sorta broken sleep?

  1. I feel your pain with broken sleep. I’m lucky if I can sleep for two hours and not wake up screaming from nightmares. Sometimes it helps to listen to soothing music. My therapist has me writing out my dream/nightmares in a journal when I wake up from them because then they are out of my head. Maybe try and see if that helps some too.
