    My son used to have night mares, and I would make sure he read a good book or watched something funny on the tele before he went to sleep, alot of the times it is to do with what you last saw or thought. Are you having them???

    You have probably gone through something worrying and it is playing on your mind, have you explained to your OH about it, if he knows just how bad you feel when you wake up from one he may be more understanding and give you the hug you deserve. They are not nice to have, I used to have them many many years ago but dont have them anymore. Have you been to see your GP about them?

    I take it you can't talk to your mum.. But is there no one else you can talk to about the issues you have.. Maybe a councillor.. I have been through an awful lot in my short life.. and TBO if I hadn't had a councillor or friends to talk to .. I think my head may have blown.. Sometimes we need someone to vent too.. And I think this would also help with your nightmares.. Something in your sub conscience is obviously bugging you..


    Here hoping you get some deserved help.. Big hugs.. xxx

    Every cloud has a silver lining though. You must feel really positive about the fact it was just a scare. Imagine how dreadful things would be if it were anything else? I dread to think what your post would read like then.

    it was a few years ago now but i had a bone sist in my ankle the first op didnt look too good but when they got the results back it was clear ,but then 8 months later ,BANG it came back worse than before my ankle was like looking at a deformed foot , the surgen said cause it had come back it was 70%it was a cancer ,another big op ,this time i had a drain in and they did a bone graft too ,but yeah soo lucky test came back clear ,but doc did say i will get arthritas in the joint ,and sometimes the pain is bad , i have to wear a ankle support most days ,but other than that the only other i cant really do is run ,that does hurt too much .
