But if you think about it, the blind ship captain you see in your dreams could be an archetype of the anxiety you're not facing in your daily life. Now that's deep!

OP, you really need to sea that it as just a dream! It wasn't reality! Seal the horror away from your mind.

As someone who suffers from insomnia, I know that it's pretty hard to just relax. Even in bed with lights off... the mind continues to wander and it's hard to shut it off. What sometimes works for me is having the tv on in the background as I try to fall asleep. The noise distracts me from thoughts that keep me up. See what works for you, OP.

That's exactly what I thought. Like the blind captain could symbolize the fact that OP doesn't know where to go with the stress in their life. Perhaps OP should sit down and try to find baby steps towards combating the stress they have.

Or OP is the ship captain and she feels like she's on a course where she can't see what's ahead. She could be anxious because she feels like she doesn't have any direction.

Captains usually represent concerns about your control over things and blindness in dreams can represent a worry that opportunities are passing you by so this is actually really spot on.

Dreams are just images from your subconscious, so a doctor won't be much help. Maybe see a dream therapist OP, that might help sort out some of your inner thoughts.

Although a doctor could prescribe some sleeping pills or anti-anxiety meds to help her sleep. It's not a permanent fix, but a good night's sleep after a bout of insomnia might be worth it.

Don't worry, he's not gunna get you. Take a deep breath, relax and try to get catch some ZZZs. You can't deal with anything if you're sleep deprived. Turn to some sleep pills if you need.

I have some ridiculous things that keep me awake at night too, OP, you're not alone! Good luck, there are such thing as sleeping pills if you really need them! (:
