Default scared to go to sleep

had a bad nightmare this morning -- ive been "visited" twice in my sleep and its made me terrified to sleep tonite -- i feel so stupid to be scared but i am. I had this dream in the early morning: i go to sleep and see these people who really dont have eyes, just black holes - black clothes etc - they follow me, terrorize me and then try to kill me -- started out w/ mom alive and ok then they show up laughing and try to grab me and hurt me...

Aww, forever. I'm so sorry you're having these nightmares.

You can try sleeping with a light on, or the TV. Also, what are you thinking about right before you sleep? Whatever it is, try to think of something else.

Don't feel stupid for being scared , its a natural feeling to wake up with hair on end after a nightmare- . I know I have! .
Sometimes nightmares can be VERY SCARY and they are that way for a reason, I read that nightmares are something that you are not paying attention to and if you keep not paying attention to - you will have the NIGHTMARE, the dream will come back until you face what ever is your not facing, or fear. If you are depressed these do sound like the classic depression dreams.
where someone is trying to kill a part of you. Part of you that makes you happy- The eyes out part sounds like you aren't seeing something. Could be family related since you had a dream about your mother. They say you should ask your dream self about the dream you are having - and face them but I know it is hard facing nightmares! -
Oh and I agree about the light or a tv or a radio- that could help you fall asleep- I did that for awhile when I had the witches nightmare. I had my tv on almost all night- Seemed to help a lot. I am an avid dreamer so been researching dreams a lot.
write mine down even . so that may help too. Hope this helped somewhat- !!. sweet dreams.

i find that when i read before bed, my dreams tend to be about whatever i read. like i used to have all these short story books full of horror stories & vampires & witches (that was their thing, 100 stories about one thing, it was pretty cool), anyhoo, i kept getting nightmares which wasnt too bad, they werent really that bad but then i had one that really freaked me out & i stopped reading for a few months... anyway, my point is try reading something.
