Nightmare To Disrupt Daily Activities?
Hello, I want to ask. When I was a child, I experienced trauma so that it made my character change, which used to be cheerful to be quiet. Now I am more than 18 years old, I can be cheerful again. However, on several occasions, I have had nightmares many times with the same topic related to past trauma. After waking up sometimes I feel sad, even to the point of crying. But, there I see not myself, but my friend who reminded me about myself. How is the handling, huh? Because honestly I feel disturbed by this. My friend also doesn’t necessarily feel the same sadness as when I dreamed about him.
