What is Shaken Baby Syndrome?

Each year in the United States alone, medical treatment is sought for an estimated 1,400-1,600 babies who have been shaken. Don’t let your child become just another statistic! Tell everyone who cares for your child “Never shake a baby!”

I know some of you probably have these moments too. The come and go, and I havent really had them for years. I dont know if they are coming out now because there is other drama going on in my life, but the last few nights I have had nightmares of Kyle's assault. They are very detailed and I can see the faces so clearly. Which at least for me is not very normal. The are very upsetting, I hate having them. It has been 10 years since Kyle was assaulted. Why am I having these nightmares now. The child abuser could get out on parole next year... perhaps that is on the forfront of my mind, maybe its the challenges with stresses in life that is bringing them on. I dont know.... I just wish they would go away. I have woke up screaming the last few nights. It is a horrible feeling.

Does anyone else experience these nightmares of bad dreams?

I don't have nightmares, but I have dreams that are soooooo real and vivid that she's still alive, and we are doing normal stuff like shopping, etc, then I wake up horrified because its not real and I cry for days after. Its like the scab keeps getting ripped off. Just when I think I'm doing good, I get one of these dreams. I actually hate dreaming about her because of the disappointment when I wake up.
