    Do you guys ever have nightmares about your childhood?

    I do sometimes. Even though things are a lot better now I still have these dreams. They get me up in the middle of the night

    Yes, sometimes. One weird dream theme that I commonly have is waiting for the school bus to come and pick me up. The house and setting vary but I'm always waiting for a bus.

    Yes I do. The bullying mainly & conflict within the family. Makes me glad to be a grownup now actually.

    Yes. I still have nightmares about my older brother. He bullied me pretty bad. I always feel totally enraged and helpless at the same time.

    That's messed up. I wouldn't dare bully my younger sister. I only want to encourage her & inspire her to be the best she can be.

    My dad often spanked us to the point of bruising and I recall that vividly.

    I had a traumatic experience in high school I relive constantly I’ve seen therapists and they all think I’m crazy so I just don’t talk about it

    I used to have nightmares about school all the time. Now I see this question, I realize it's not the case anymore. Sleep is still a big issue, unfortunately.
    The best book I read about trauma since '97 is Pete Walker's Complex PTSD: From Surviving To Thriving
