Re: People like me--reliving trauma!
I hope that I can help you out, but what I think you might want to do something else, after you work on the workbooks. It might help get your mind off things a little bit, you could do something like watch a nice movie, or maybe read a book. Try not to read or watch anything that has to do with bad things. That is what my doctor told me, she said try to take all of the books, news, ect. away right before bed. And sometimes it can reduce the dream chances. Now, I have dreams too, but mine were about being murdered by the same kid that assaulted me. Sometimes it worked, and on really bad days, it didn't. Well, I wish you the best of luck with my advice, and hope that it works!
