Just woke up from a nightmare. About being helpless. My therapist warned me that I might start having more reactions like that as I started talking about things, but wow.
In it, someone wanted to murder me. Why is a blur, but I was aware f the plot down to the smallest details: I was going t be drugged and left t die in an arson fire of a library I frequented.
And, nightmare fuel here: for some reason knowing it made me try to help, so my existence didnt inconvenience them. I took their bait. Got q job at the place so then could more reliably know when I’d be there. Kept acting like their friend to make sure they had opportunity.
And whenever I started to try to resist somehow, the whole thing reset.
God, I’m glad I’m awake now. Last couple iterations I was even aware that it was some kind of nightmare, but it still took ‘dying’ ppainfully — no matter at what point I broke out of the narrative and forced a reset — to jolt me out of just letting it keep going.
And I’m tired and I’m gong to have to fall asleep again soon,but I dong want to be helpless. :/
