I suffer from "night terrors" every night. They are like nightmare but are so realistic that sometimes I'll wake up with bite marks, bruises, cuts, scrapes etc. in places that I couldn't have done myself (such as my center back, by my elbow and other weird places). These "night terrors" have been occurring every night for sevral years now and I've become accustom to them. They sometimes worry me that they may be bad for my health but I feel that of I tried to expelled them that it could disconnect me spiritually from a lot of things I've met, felt and/or spoke to.
I was wondering if anyone had any advice on what I should do, and more importantly if someone could tell me what causes these dreams an what they mean.
