Everyone dreams every night although most of us can't remember them the next day.

It's OK, because this proves you are sleeping and getting the benefits of sleep -- regardless of the content of your dreams, even if disturbing.  Remember, they're only dreams and cannot hurt you.  The dream may be a way for you to process past trauma, so it is a healthy thing.  It's OK to let it go and let yourself sleep.
