FTA:The relationship between sleep problems and psychosis is not clear. One theory is that bullying or other traumatic events early in life can cause both symptoms.

I wanted to ask if severe child abuse can produce the same symptoms. I guess this is saying that's possible?

FTA:Night terrors occur at specific points during sleep and can be managed by briefly waking the child.

Not mine. From early childhood up to the present, when I'm having these nightmares it doesn't matter how many times I wake myself up, it always picks up right where it left off. The only thing that works for me is to get up and start drinking coffee as sleep is done for that night.

But that Tim Burton makes a good cup of coffee. Can't take that away. I wish there were more shops around here.

What about walking around and pissing in your jammies?

Hey, it's not my fault that Barney is a demonic entity bent on brainwashing children into his demonic army of the damned and taking over the world!

Fabric_Man: Barney who? Rubble? Fife? Stinson?


The dinosaur, probably.  Barney Rubble only causes mental anguish for Fred Flintstone,
Barney Fife gives Andy Taylor fits, and Barney Stinson annoys the rest of "How I Met
Your Mother".  (Also, you left one out...Barney Gumble, drinking buddy of Homer Simpson -
"BURRPP!")

But my nightmares only happen while I'm awake, what does that say about me?
