I have heard many people mention weird dreams or nightmares occurring in the first few weeks following the realization that they had been in an intimate relationship with a psychopath or a narcissist.
Some people have said that they dreamed of their ex in ways that represented missing them.
Other people dream of things being the way they used to be, prior to the dawning, shocking realization that the relationship was an entire deception.
Personally I had the most terrifying nightmares I have ever had before that. I guess you could call them night terrors, because when I awoke I felt like something evil had followed me out of the dream and into the darkness of my bedroom.
I had to start sleeping with the lights on again, which I had not done in years.
In the dream I would be walking in some building either alone or with other people. Out of no where it would feel like this evil entity, dressed as a man, would enter my dream and invade my mind.
The evil creature would grab me from behind in such a shocking way that it disturbed me to my very core.
It was the way he appeared out of nowhere in the dream that was so terrifying. One minute no one was in the hallway and then he would just materialize and grab me.
I swear when I woke up I could still feel his hands around me. I felt as though whatever it was did not belong in my dream.
I had not given it permission to be there. It was like it was entering my mind from the outside.
Did any of you have dream experiences?
