101 Ways to Cope with Losing Elderly Parents # 9

Dreams and Nightmares seem to be part and parcel of the process of losing elderly parents. Obviously everyone is going to have their own versions of these, depending on their unique circumstances but I guess most people can be very unnerved by the vividness of the dreams and the disorientation that can be associated with them.

Recurring nightmares can be hellish, especially when they re-play a part of the journey that one has manged to ‘forget’ or  somehow deal with in waking hours.

The only way that I have found of  stopping recurring nightmares is to bring them out into the open and tell a supportive person about them.  Bottling them up seems to be a recipe for disaster whereas confiding can well serve as the key to dealing with them successfully.
