Night terrors are REAL.
And they happen for a very real, nervous system-related, reason:
“I suddenly wake up, sometimes not even knowing who I am, with a fast heartbeat and trembling from the inside out.”
“I wake up feeling like I’m going to throw up and I feel hopeless. Everything feels dark, and when I think about the things that make me happy, nothing changes…”
“There’s literally nothing I can do to calm down. It makes me dread going to sleep, which doesn’t help anything.”
