I’m not sure how to deal with this.
When the nightmares are trauma related.
There’s very little support for teens with PTSD.
I’ve tried happy thoughts before sleep, taking control on dreams by telling her to see me their saving her, talking about them; nothing so far seems to work.
So now I lie awake listening to her TV as she won’t sleep.
Should I sleep in her room? She would hate that.
I’m so tired so she must be too.
I hope and pray only good dreams come through tonight.
