Daily Prompt: Nightmares … what’s it got to do with a female horse?

da Goya Nightmares

Nightmares are defined as an unpleasant dream that can cause a strong negative emotional response from the mind.

Did you know that they can occur on average once a month? They are not common in children under five, most common in teenagers and common in adults (although the frequency drops about one third from age 25 to 55).  Lucky for me I am close to the end age!

What I do know is that ‘Fearfulness in waking life is correlated with the incidence of nightmares’.  I wish this was not true as it would make my life easier.  In the most darkest days of my fear, I discovered that nightmares are only half the story, crying in your sleep and waking with tears can also be a distressing reality.

  1. Oh no, I am still in the qualifying category…lol…although my hubby has enough for both of us with his PTSD which could be why I don’t experience them now and are such a light sleeper. Thank you for sharing and for the ping back.
