When do dreams start effecting your sleep?

I closed my eyes, and never expected this dream to happen to me. I never thought it would get so bad, that I’d be terrified to sleep. My eyes shut and here was the world I as if lived in. A horror world, luckily it was just a dream…right?
I had fallen asleep on the couch, which had happened a lot lately. No one would wake me up because they’d just let me sleep. I wake up and my eyes direct straight to the door. A door I’ve always despised. It’s always made my body shiver. It’s a glass door. I can see out, and it can see in. I kept staring at this door. Why? I was not sure. But I knew there must be a reason. And then it happened. I saw two black eyes looking back at me, two black eyes darker then the night sky.
I tried to scream for help, and there was no voice to be heard. I tried to get up and run, because I knew it would get me if I wasn’t careful. I tried to stand up…and I was paralyzed. I fell straight down to the floor. I threw my hands up in the air and tried to do something. Something that would catch someone’s attention…but there was no one there. It was only me and those black eyes looking back at me.
My ears started ringing, as if buzzing. I tried to look around to see what was going on…and that’s when I lost my hearing and my sight. I screamed, pointless. I tried to move, pointless. In my mind I screamed as loud as I could. I said, “LET ME OUT NOW.” And just like that I was back in reality. I woke up not breathing. Just laying there in bed…I knew it was all over and I was glad. I hated going to sleep because I knew I’d be haunted. I also learned telling them to let me out, would work.
I was wrong. I thought I was out but instead here I lay in my room, in another dream. I look to the right and a woman appears. She’s beautiful. She has curly long blonde hair and it’s as if blowing…but there is no wind. She looks at me for just a second, and then redirects her eyes to another woman. This woman was old, very old. She had short grey hair. She’s walking towards a light the blonde woman had made. I stood up quickly and walked over to the blonde haired woman. I asked her if that old woman was going to heaven, because she was walking into the light.
I received no answer. Within the next few minutes that blonde haired woman was pointing me towards the light. She looked at me and smiled. I had no idea what I was doing or where I was going. But that bright light captured me in its midst. I as if fell into this light…it turned into a hole. I screamed for help, I needed help. I was falling, and for all I knew I was dead. That was when I woke up. I was reassured this time that I was awake. I thanked God for letting me live another day.
