Night Terrors

It's no use. I can't go back to sleep. Just had the worst bad dream/night panic attack in years. Stupid really but these things happen.

It's left me unable/unwanting to go back to sleep and I've had to turn on the light and now the computer to keep me company and try to ground my wakeful self in the effort to dispel the whole thing everytime I shut my eyes.

It was a classic 'things that lurk in the darkness' affair. The whole left hand side of my room was a nasty rocky/coral and fungi ridden underwater cavern that just gave off an air of evilness and was slowly creeping further into my room. Bubbles occasionally leaked from the cavern enterance and then I could see nasty sneering eyes and gaping mouths with long lustful teeth and little feelers just poking out of the darkness. Whatever lived in the cavern wanted to consume me, to trap me.

Scared the shit out of me and Sarah was no help and just freaked out (but then when these things happen I guess it can cause otehrs who don't know anything about them/me to freak out). I'm just glad they don't occur too often these days to he extent to tonights one. I've tried a few grounding techniques that I used to use but am not sure if any are working. Typing this is really just another effort to get it out of me and allow me to go back to bed.

These things can often sybolise things and I think I can see the meaning of this when comparing it with the way I'm generally feeling atm. So no real great surprise I guess - but I'd actually forgotten how bad these things can be.

Anyway, nuff said. Might go and make myself a nice cup of tea in typical Brit-style. (I only say this as I've not got any Southern Comfort in the house and haven't had for a while now - must remefy that....:)
