I may bend, but not break

I'm glad it seems to be working!
It reminded me of something I had to do shortly after my dad passed. I'd been having nightmares. A friend, who reminds me a lot of Terri (just wasn't as nice about things as she is
) sat me down and asked me to explain the dream to him. So I did. He asked me how it made me feel, and told me to start telling the dreams "no."
So before I went to bed I started saying "You have no power over me." I couldn't for the life of me remember where the line came from... but I kept saying it over and over. When my dream started that night, I was able to control it for the first time ever.
Well after a few days of pondering (and a few more nightmares) I realized that I felt like the girl from the movie Labyrinth. The dreams were running my life, ruining my sleep and scaring me.... because I let them. So now when ever I have a nightmare that wakes me, I think of Beating the evil guy from that movie into submission and locking him in a crystal cage. Because I take sleep medication it's only effective about 60% of the time, but I'd rather have 40% of them than 100%.
