I find it hard to go back to sleep after I've had a bad dream. The bad feelings stay with me and it keeps on playing back in my head. I try to think of good things but nothing changes.

depending on what kind of a bad dream i had my mind may replay it when i try and go back to sleep and its hard for me to fall asleep again and it sucks because you're so tired after that. i usually turn on the tv in my room to get my mind off of it therefore making it easier for me to fall asleep

When I have bad dreams, I usually just get up and do something because there's no way I can go back to sleep. Sometimes if I watch a movie, I'll fall asleep watching it, but other times, I just won't be able to go back to sleep.
