How Do I Stop Having All These Horrid Dreams? I Wake Up Crying Almost All the Time…?

Question by Nicole: How do I stop having all these horrid dreams? I wake up crying almost all the time…?
It started when I was 15 when my eating disorder was really bad and I was hardly eating at all, I would dream that I had eaten a massive plate of really fattening food or weighed myself and gained 6lb, this happened at least 6 times a night and I would wake up in a complete panic each time having to go and weigh myself. I could only go back to sleep when I convinced myself that I did not eat anything.

Then when I started to bing purge more the nightmares changed and became more about something consuming me like I can see myself laying unconscious in a hospital bed and a machine starts sucking every drop of blood from my body really fast untill I am just a dry corpse and no matter how much I screamed and cried for help no one could hear me.
Also there was one where I saw myself as a child swimming in pools of black water then when I look up I am being consumed by a monster, but by the time I notice what is happening, it is too late.

Then since I have started recovery I have been having lots of nightmares or being misunderstood, like I try to do something which I think is good but everyone hates me and prosectues me for it.
Just last night I had a dream that my sister was just starting to make herself throw-up (she is 24 and very overweight) and my mum was extremely concerned, but she never cared about my eating disorder and said I was just trying to make everything about me.

Mainly all my nightmares are about either bing judged horribly by the people I care about, everyone else having an eating disorder and they all matter more than me, people msunderstanding me, being eaten alive…

What can I do to stop all these horrid dreams, I wake up almost every morning in floods of tears. Also a lot of them are very triggering foor my eating disorder so recovery seems almost impossible.

Please help me, what do i do?
No therapist, psycologist or psychiatrist has ever been able to help me with this.
