I have been having nightmares continuously lately. I was in a very abusive relationship and was lucky I got out alive honestly. When I met my current DH i was still very nervous of men. Everytime he moved his hands quickly I flintched and he was very understanding at the time. I had nightmares for years and after about 5 years the nightmares didnt stop but were not as frequent. I was able to deal with the nightmares because they werent as frequent. About 2 weeks ago I started having nightmares every night. I would wake up crying or screaming. Break out in sweats and it is just horrific. I didn;t really want to tell DH what my nightmares were about but he kept pushing so I finally told him and his response was "Its been 8 years get over it already hes not coming back" I guess I can understand his frustration and I don't know why this is happening. Can anyone maybe give me some insight maybe someone who has been through something similar.
