    Aww Jacky, :hugs: :hugs: I am so very sorry you're having such a rough time. Nightmares are very common following a traumatic event. Nightmares which repeat a traumatic event reflect a normal psychic healing process, and will diminish in frequency and intensity if recovery is progressing. Have you tried speaking to a grief counselor?

    Maybe you can give these a try?

    In the dream world:

    Call for friends to come and help you.
    Confront the nightmare.
    Think of something that has made you happy. [

    Exactly how you're supposed to do this when you're in a dream, I have no idea, but those are just some suggestions I found for you while browsing the net.

    I've has dreams like that. They're so awful, and they do stick with you, they aren't like normal nightmares.
    You need to ask yourself what else in your life is stressing you. Usually when I have those sort of dreams, its another fear manifesting itself.
    Hope it all works out.
