We were asked to write an essay about our problem we got through. So I did this.


It all started when I was in 5th grade, One night, I woke up breathless. I had a terrible nightmare. I told my father about this and he said that that will be my first and last encounter with a nightmare so there's nothing to be afraid of. But unfortunately, it didn't end in just one night.

I tried everything to stop it. I avoided watching too much horror movies, I tried to lose weight, I prayed everynight before going to sleep but nothing worked. It was always there, everynight, waiting for me to fall asleep and when I'm in a deep sleep, it will begin. Everything will be black, I was alone and I will be surprised to see a dark, short, old woman grabbing me down to a very deep place. I tried to open my eyes but I can't move any part of my body and I felt very tired without knowing why. Then, when I gained enough energy to move a finger, I would be awake and tired, sweaty though our place in Laguna is cold and well-ventilated. It kept bugging me until I'm in 6th grade. Fortunately, after leaving Laguna to move here in Manila with my grandparents, my nightmares stopped. I was surprised but happy because I can sleep peacefully now.

When we moved here, I always pray before going to sleep everynight and fron then on that old woman never bugged me again. I should have known that living here in Manila would make my nights normal.
