I've been having nightmares each night since the beginning of October of this year. Earlier this year I had a bedbug infestation, which then led to insomnia. I wasn't always someone who slept early, but ever since the incident I ended up staying awake for 48 to 72 hours. My sleeping patterns soon altered, so instead of sleeping at night; I slept in the day time. In other words, I had become nocturnal; like an Owl. I began to feel paranoia, cold, weak and hallucination. The bedbugs were eventually taken care of, but the side effects were soon to start. Due to lack of sleep for a long period of time I might have possibly suffered from sleep deprivation. Sleep deprivation also leads to REM sleep, which are translated into nightmares. If I had to explain all of these nightmares in a post I would be an author. I will explain one nightmare that I think you might like to hear. It was related to 2012. I found myself standing stationary as I stare at a gigantic orange/red ball heading towards Earth while every human being is running and panicking, but before it hit I woke up. It wasn't long, but it did leave me thinking. Which brings me to my main question; how often do you have nightmares? I don't think it's normal to have them every night. I need an explanation if possible. Thank you.
Note: If you have a dream/nightmare you would like to share, please post it.
