How exactly do you know for a fact that my girlfriend's "aura" and my "aura" are incompatible? Seeing as how you've never met either one of us, I'd like to know.

Of course it's cheaper being single. But who the hell wants to go out to eat to a dinner for one?

I'm just saying, don't say I didn't warn you. And to mark today.


Trust me, when I left him, I never had another experience like you have now.


I think it was him bringing the bad mojo.

Thanks for the info. I have debated going to a doctor. My worst fear however is being diagnosed with PTSD because of these nightmares and they put me on mind numbing drugs or sleep medication. I want no part in either of those.
The following is my opinion as a member participating in this discussion.


You can have a study done without telling them the possible PTSD dream, just tell them that you suspect that you might be suffering from Apnea, PLM's (periodic limb movements, hypnic jerks, or myoclonus), and nightmares including ones involving water (your ship dream), and that is more then enough for your Dr to write you a script for a sleep study. The treatment for Apnea is normally a Cpap Machine, not medication.

Also, since you're a vet, you can usually get it done through the VA. Most VA hospitals have sleep centers in them, but the wait time is longer then for a private lab. Though some VA's will send their spill over, if the wait is too long, to a private lab as well. The VA will also provide you with Cpap Machines, Masks, Filters, etc. free of charge.

No offense to Manhater, but this is a very common issue, and has NOTHING to do with your spouse.

Sorry, but it has everything to do with your spouse.

I am telling you from experience. I haven't had a premonition or night terror since I have left him. It's hanging around her.

No offense.
taken.

Why I got dog, that only protects me. I can trust him and only him. And my dog will let me know when someone comes even close to me. He still tries to attack my sister after 9 months. lol. He's my man.



I will wake when my dog is alert, and that's the best pal to to have. Even if it's at nothing, and he senses something, he makes me alert to it.


Which is your best protection.

The following is my opinion as a member participating in this discussion.

Unless your under 20, I doubt you had any sleep terrors to begin with. As I stated above, they happen in slow wave sleep that decreases significantly with age. Children generally suffer from “night terrors”.

Can you give any scientific verifiable facts as to how any of this is supposedly connected to your spouse?

Unless you suffered from PTSD due to abuse, I just don't see any possible connection. If you were undergoing some level of abuse, then its a different story, but still does not necessarily relate to the OP.

I never dealt with abuse, so I don't know that aspect or realm. I can say at one point, but I don't let it affect me. Like others jump on the band wagon.

But, my dog on the other hand, always acts abused, even when I got him as puppy. Poor thing sat in the shelter for 2 days and acts like someone is beating him. Been spoiled ever since. But, hangs his head low in public places. I don't get it. I spoil him rotten and he's happy at home but miserable when I try to take him out.

I love him to death, because he only hangs around me and that's it.

Ask my sister. he totally acts like CUJO around here, even after 9 months.

Anyone comes near me, you better run. Couldn't ask for a better dog.

What you're mentioning is stuff your Dog is picking up from YOU. The dog might feel insecure because it detects that you are not “in control of the situation” for some reason. If you are not being the alpha, then the dog either feels that it must be (being aggressive), or it feels insecure (acts abused).

Not sure how we switched topics here, but you can ask any dog person, and your going to get a simular answer on that one.

The VA is great if they weren't so damn slow... I got out in January and I am still waiting for my initial VA assessment for benefits. Problem is compounded due to me living in Germany. I'll probably have to go through my regular health insurance first.

The thought of wearing a CPAP is pretty funny though! Maybe necessary though.

Manhater,

I think your name says it all. Sexism goes both ways. Sorry if you had a douche for a husband, but don't encourage other people to ruin their relationships.

I love my dog and that's all that matters. He loves me and that all that matters, I'm off, and so is he.
