I woke up and found myself crying because of a nightmare...

I guess I had a nightmare last night, can't really remember what it was about but I just woke up and found myself crying. The tears just won't stop falling down. My boyfriend got alarmed too because I couldn't really talk to him properly when I called him on the phone. I have experienced that before too. I guess it's normal though. Do you know someone who has experienced this? maybe your kids, or you? Thanks

Hello dear glitzypurple. I am sorry to know that you have had a nightmare and found yourself crying after waking up from the nightmare. I hope that you are ok today as this is the first day of the new year. May good and sweet dreams follow you every night!

I have had a few bad dreams and when I woke up I was crying or feeling really afraid. Sometimes my dreams stick with me for several hours and sometimes all day. I have a hard time shaking off some of them. I usually don't remember them either, just that I was afraid and then I feel like something bad is going to happen to me. But usually by the end of the day I can shake the feeling of doom.

I really don't think it is normal! I myself have not experienced this but I have heard other people had it happen to them! In the Latin culture, the old folks say that demons are inside of you, and there is a ritual they perform, where they ward off the demons, with a religous ritual, and I have talked to people, and it seems to work! My ex-wife was part Blackfoot Indian, and she says that in their culture, they had rituals also, to ward off an evil spirit, that would enter your body, and try to control it! Now these native americans believe in this very strongly! In this new generation, I don't hear about it hardly!
