I am not sure if this is the right place, but my brother recently got hospitalized because he was homicidal and suicidal. Ever since I've had nightmares about it. I have had nightmares involving me and my brother arguing to my brother trying to kill me and it is scaring me.

I will talk to my therapist about it soon, I have had nightmares in the past (I'm not sure if it was triggered or not, since I didn't notice any triggers).

My brother has threatened to kill me in the past.

Little background on me: I am diagnosed with bipolar disorder by a medical professional, as well as autism (asperger syndrome) professionally as well.

I tend to get extremely frequent nightmares when I'm stressed, which obviously you are. And e content of your dreams is fairly obviously what you are stressed about.

Why dreams happen and where they come from is a huge debate in psychology and no one will be able to give you a definitive answer as to why you're having these nightmares, but I would think it's just a stress response.

If they're causing you distress though, definitiely talk to your therapist to help you deal with that distress.

I'm sorry about your brother.
