Beware the stories you read or tell.
My nights were full of terrors, a byproduct of bipolar and PTSD, sleep was not a relief for me.
Addicted to shows with dark themes, I would falls asleep after watching flashes of violence on my screen, and relive the horror as I slept.
I stopped watching the news, I turned off the crime shows, I read no more thrillers.
As I took away the triggers, and began to heal my original wound, the night terrors started to ease.
Wary now of what to consume before bed, aware that if shows on the tv can affect our subconscious, I wonder how is our newsfeeds tainting the waters of our minds.
