The intensity of your nightmares have been increasing over the last 6 months and have now reached unbearable heights, Dr. Chapman has told you to go visit an acquaintance of his, a Dr. Boston Beaucomb, and taking a prescription from him for relief until the group session, where Dr. Chapman hopes for a break-through.
