Eval first: Please seek evaluation. A comprehensive evaluation by a clinical psychologist or psychiatrist may shed light on the matter. Sometimes a polysomnogram is required to assess isolated sleep problems.

Dreams with unusual content are not uncommon after disturbing or stressful events. The issue is not the dream content but rather the problem of being woken up by the dream. If you sleep peacefully through your dreams you won't remember or be disturbed by the content of your dreams. Try Planned Dream Intervention from my No More Nightmares class. Most people are no longer woken up after the class.
