    Question by or from another nightmare

    I knew I was awaken by another nightmare again!

    Should I say "from" in the above sentence?
    I'm not quite sure...
    Anyone can enlighten me a little bit? Thanks.

    If the nightmare woke you up, use "by", but if someone woke you up, use "from".

    EX: I was woken up by my dream. (My dream made me wake up)
    EX: I was woken up from my dream. (My bother made me wake up, and I was having such a nice dream!)
