    I hate going to sleep at night because my dreams bother me.

    I mentioned that I was thinking about creating a thread on this. Anyway, I take Latuda and Seroquel before bed. Latuda helps with my paranoia, and Seroquel helps me sleep. I don't know if they have anything to do with my dreams. I'm not sure. But my dreams are really starting to annoy me...
