"
You mentioned in your message that you suffered from crying and breathing heavy when you were younger. Did you ever resolve the problem then?
You could just be carrying old emotional baggage that is yet to be resolved.
The old friend, can be symbolic of you being the old friend....the nightmare re-visiting. unresolved pain from our past continues to show up some how, some way exposing it's hold on you. eventually this old friend will go away, only to return again at another time.
The friend as you remember from school, was she anything like you in those days and were you having these same kinds of dreams then? The school age girl inside of you is the one sleeping with your partner...understand?
