Can anyone please help?
A few yrs ago my ex bf almost smothered me to death in my sleep. He was cuddling me and squeezing too hard. I was asleep but aware of what was going on. I managed to wake myself up and push him off me. It was literally the scariest sleep experience of my life. I haven’t been able to sleep alone in that bed ever since. I have night terrors. If I sleep with someone else in the bed, it doesn’t happen. My question is, is it the bed or the bedroom that I’m associating with trauma? I have since gotten a new bed but afraid to try it out. If I sleep in another room, I’m fine. I mostly sleep on my couch but I’m getting tired of it and don’t want to move. Anyone ever experienced this? Thanks
