I have had recurring nightmares involving my mother and/or sister chasing me or hurting me for many years. They were an integral part of my childhood slumber.
Ten years ago, I stopped all contact with them, and the dreams went away for several years. Unfortunately, they returned three years ago and haven’t departed since. They occur with extreme regularity, almost daily.
