    Your dream and your inability to sleep may be related to one another. Regarding your trouble sleeping, there is an entire section of this site dedicated to insomnia. It says that "over 50% of Americans report they suffer from insomnia at least once a month or more." It also says that it is the most common sleep complaint there is and the most difficult to cure.

    To understand your dream, it's important to understand why dreams recur. Here's a link to an explanation of what causes them and what makes them go away.

    As for understanding your dream... I find it easiest when I'm totally baffled by one of my dreams to ask myself how I felt in the dream. From your description, I can imagine that you would feel terribly alone, isolated, and maybe even abandoned. If that is how you feel in the dream, try to figure out where you might feel that way in your waking life because that is the subject of your dream.

    Homes in dreams are symbols for the self. Here's a link to the definition which explains it better. In your dream, the streets are deserted, and you are all alone. Even your house is empty, which is a symbol for lonliness, disconnection and separation from those around you... and perhaps even from your real self. That's a pretty scary and sad place to be.

    Do you strugge with feelings of isolation, loniness or depression?

    The easy thing to recommend is that you get out there and be more social, but if you find that difficult or you are grappling with depression, you would be wise to consult with a psychologist. Coming to grips with your true feelings, the ones that create such a stark landscape for you in your dreams night after night. is the best way to make this dream go away.

    Your sleep problems may be a symptom of depression; they may be due to the dream or it may be something else. Everyone stirs at the end of a 90 minute sleep cycle, but the inability to get back to sleep (perhaps as a result of the dream) is not normal. When it comes to sleep problems, be sure to see a doctor who specializes in sleep medicine.

    There is great help out there. By exposing your dream to the light of day and seeking understanding and help, you've taken an important step toward knowing yourself and correcting the problem.

    Congratulations! Hopefully, your dreams will soon be populated by happy and loving friends and family... maybe even exciting adventures.

    Sweet dreams!
