thirst and sore throat

Does any of you who suffers from anxiety or is highly stressed struggle with periodic chronic thirst (in my case it is particularly high at night and makes me have a lot of nightmares; or is also related to salty foods that I should avoid at dinner, but it's not always the case) and then an annoying sore throat that in my case comes occasionaly but last the whole day and whatever I do it doesn't go away?

Of course, I would like to discover if anyone else struggles with something just similar, not the same as me.

Anyone has struggles related to anxiety, stress and thirst?

Thank you 😊

The Roller Coaster

I hate the idea of bouncing from side to side and trying to stay on track of everything. It feels like an utter #nightmare I hate how it feels as if I am struggling to make sense of things today. Yesterday was a rough day for me, and passive aggressive management at my job was not very helpful.

I can't wait until the day I can get a better handle on my roller coaster and not feel so out of control. Happy then Sad, then frustrated. I am a ping pong ball and the paddle is life. I don't respond well to the hits of natural life. Just when I thought I was doing it, I realized I have these struggles.

I know it's psychological because I am feeling physically #tired . I slept without medicine last night, and this morning I kept sleeping and I still feel like sleeping. Unfortunately there is not much I can do at the moment... But just keep moving.

Does anyone else have this issue?

I don’t know if this is just me, but if I eat anything sugary or too salty before I go to sleep, I likely get nightmares. So I usually avoid those kinds of foods or snacks many hours before going to sleep. Has this happened to anyone else before? /gen

Worst Nightmare Ever

I’ve always been sensitive to pretty much everything, as a Highly Sensitive Person, and that includes the spiritual realm. I promise you that it’s real and evil exists beyond just the immoral actions and thoughts of human beings. If I hadn’t experienced the presence of evil in different situations in my past, I might not have taken this dream so seriously.

Last night, I had the most terrifying nightmare I’ve ever had. It started out as a pretty common scene: I was in bed next to my husband, and the kids had come into the room and were sleeping fitfully on the floor. Then, my fan started turning off and on sporadically, as though the electricity was flickering. First, I told the kids to be still, thinking, sleepily, that their movements were somehow causing it, then I felt a presence in the room, like an evil spirit hovering in the air. Suddenly, I felt like I couldn’t breathe and the evil spirit was trying to enter me through my mouth. I prayed earnestly for God’s protection, and the spirit backed off, but tried again. I continued praying, until I woke up, terrified, and begged for Ron to wake up and help me. “Something evil is trying to get inside me! It’s not a dream! Pray for me!” I cried out. Ron turned over, grabbed my hand and prayed God’s protection and peace over me. I prayed, too, “Jesus, you are my rock and my salvation, please protect me! Amen.” I spent the next several minutes trying to calm myself and convince myself that it really was “just” a dream. I don’t know that I’ll ever fully believe that. I’ve had too many encounters with the spiritual realm to believe that they couldn’t manipulate a dream to cover their shenanigans. All I know is that it felt SO real, and so incredibly terrifying. But, God protected me, as He always has, and my faith is stronger than ever, so whether or not I was truly under spiritual attack is a moot point. I tell you what, though. There’s a sin habit that I’ve been struggling to be done with that I’ve definitely renewed my battle against, because of this. I definitely don’t need ANY cracks in my relationship with God, after an experience like that!!

I don't want to turn off the light and lie down to go to sleep because of the nightmares I've had the past week. I wake up super tense and curled up in the fetal position with a feeling of terror. Last week was quite stressful which might have triggered them. And now I have to go back to work tomorrow after the weekend, so I feel the stress building again. I'm so tired but so afraid.

A dream about my ex

I just woke up from a dream about my ex. He is a narcissist. I have had no contact with him since 2013, but somehow he shows up in my dreams. I hate this!
It feels like I can't fully break free from him even after such a long time. How is he still in my head?? How can I get him out?
Not the start to 2022 that I wanted...

Extreme #nightterrors

Does anyone else have extreme night terrors. So bad that you have physical affects the next day. As in swelling of a body part, burning, or complete and utterly body exhaustion. I’ve always delt with #nightterrors but this morning was the most intense one in years. I’m afraid my sleep is going to go down the drain now... #ChronicIlless #Sleep #nightmare #MentalHealth

I just woke up from a nightmare where I got fired from my job, you know those dreams where you wake up and it feels real? I’m on freaking vacation from a job that has never been going better and my annoying subconscious has to pull out it’s oldies but goodies, I actually feel nauseous.
Sometimes nowhere feels safe, not even sleep. #nightmare


I found something about myself today

I found something about myself today.

Since I was a teenager, my biggest nightmare was something I called "aam zindagi" which translates to "common life". In the nightmare, I was an unaccomplished person who was married to someone who didn't love me, I had two kids I never wanted, and I was just a housewife whose job was to cook and clean only.

A lot jas happened since then. A person whom I loved who didn't love me back and my resulting inability to love anyone else, my battles with loneliness, the war I fought (and am still fighting) with anxiety and depression, grandmother's cancer, my father who said I have no rights to the childhood home I grew up in, my mother's constant screaming, my brother who has a low IQ and ADHD which makes it difficult for him fo study and be normal (I'm always worried about his future), and the 35 bmi that I now have because of stress eating, hair fall, the constant tension headaches which seem to come and go as per their will, and the fact that I am 24 now and soon I'll have to either marry someone (arranged only since for love marriage you need to have someone whom you love and who loves you) or be a lonely woman in the near future.

I could not fully understand why was I triggered by the word "marriage", but now I do. It seems to be the last step in making my actual life "aam zindagi". A life I used to once consider worse than death itself.

But I did something different today too. I walked and talked with a guy I met on Tinder for nearly 4 hours, I reconnected with a college friend, and I finally made up my mind and finally made up my mind to say no to someone with whom I didn't want to spend time with but was kinda forcing myself.

I know the college friend won't be there in my life forever, and the Tinder guy I met today is, well maybe a little cute yes (and I can kinda imagine kissing him), won't be able to help scare my loneliness away. After the call with my college friend I listened to "One More Light" and cried. I cried and understood my fear of the word "marriage", why is that a trigger for me. I finally admitted to myself that I want friends and I want someone to love me, someone I love as well. And it might sound needy, but we as humans need a social network to thrive.

I don't know what this realization means and what I gotta do now. But I know a little more about myself today. I really hope that one day I am free of this fear of loneliness and be happy. The current image I have is surrounded by friends, resting after a day of fun with my head on my lover's chest. I don't know if this image is correct, needy, unrealistic, or what but I hope that one day I'm as happy as I look like in that image.

Brain's empty now. I love reading people's comments and thoughts so feel free to do so. 🤗
Forgive any typos, I didn't review this one before writing.
