Today, I am struggling with exhaustion due to insomnia. The reason I cannot sleep is crippling anxiety - not about my complicated romantic situation, my pileup of work, or even my relationship with my father. No, I'm afraid of a blind ship captain I saw in a dream three days ago. FML

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.

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! (:
