Nightmare

DS has been having a lot of nightmares lately and it's always the same thing. It's him turning into or waking up as a monster and people trying to hurt him because of it.

I feel like the dreams are about him feeling different about himself. I wish he could just see that being different is ok.

Poor kid!

How old is he again? I used to have vivid, horrible nightmares as a kid. I sympathize!

Awww.  That's sad.  Maybe a book that it's ok to be different?  We have several kid friendly ones on autism, downs, adhd, and General SN.  Maybe there is one for his disability or just a general.  A Rainbow of Friends is my favorite!

Maybe. I'll check them out. He is still embarrassed and doesn't want people to know. I hope he can get past it and feel good in his own skin.

Maybe a school counselor could help him work through some of those feelings and help him find acceptance of his differences.

Does he take any medication? I'm not sure what his SN is. If he is taking medicaiton maybe between that and his feeling different is causing all of this. 

I had to take a medication that they didn't realize would interact in a really weird way with another med I was on and a couple of nights I had bizzare dreams then suddenly I began to sleep walk and do strange things. One night I sat in front of the bookcase and commenced to glue the sunday comics to the shelves! The next night I was sitting behind the couch with the ashtray and my SS asked me what I was doing and I told him I was looking for the gold that was buried in the pot. Needless to say my DR told me to stop taking the new medication.

He has Tourette Syndrome. He is not on any medication right now.
