    My husband claims that some nights I scream and he wakes me up. I do not remember what I was dreaming!!! I guess that is good?

    Probably a couple of times, I remained “spooked” for some time after the dream, even though once I woke I knew it wasn’t real. I remember one time a dream planted a fear that made me change my behavior.

    Too often and sometimes they come true which is worse yurgh though sometimes they’re really funky so then its ok – soz my english is out the window with this timezone jet lag thing… its a whole new experience!

    I’ve had some doozies… during a particularly difficult time (before The Wreck), I dreamt of horrible things – like the Grim Reaper, or dark spirits coming out of the ground to take me back down (where?? I don’t know, but I sure didn’t want to go) with them. I remember that last one, specifically, causing me to sit bolt-upright in bed, saying, out loud, “God! Help me!” Shortly after that, I started a round of antidepressants.

    AND I started really paying attention to my dreams. Now, my dreams inform me. When I have an unusually memorable dream, the minute I wake, I write down every image I can recall of it, even if it seems trivial. I try to record the story line, as well, not so much for the story itself as to tie the images together the way they related to one another in the dream. Then I go to an online dream bank and interpret it. It’s pretty amazing what your dreams say about your waking life.

    I don’t remember my dreams that much but I have woken up from a deep sleep on occasion sweating bullets and having this sense that I need to go see if everyone is ok.

    I have had dreams that scared me pretty bad. Most of them I don’t remember with full clarity though. Most of the ones that scare me are the “someone is chasing me” ones or the ones were I’m hiding from someone. Warlike dreams I guess.

    I do have dreams at times that when I wake up, I have to really think about if it really happened because they are so clear and seemed so real. When you wake up from a hard sleep and your hearts beating fast and your sweating, they make you really wonder.

    I have had several realistic dreams that have scared me! Most of them were about bad things happening to a family member and really freaked me out. After I woke up, it would take me a while to figure out it was just a dream because it was so darn realistic. I really don’t like when this happens. 😉

    I had a dream once that we were burgled during the night. It seemed so real I actually got up to go check everything was still there

  9. SKL says:

    I remember as a child waking up and having to check around the house to make sure events in my dream didn’t really happen. I guess I grew out of that . . . .

    I used to have a reoccurring dream (night mare) but I haven’t had that in YEARS thank god! I was being chased by my ex step dad…then I always ended up in a burning house rolling down the street and I could never get out. I got out one night and I never had that dream again…very weird!

  11. trishatruly says:

    Last night!! I dreamed D’Bear and I went over the edge of a bridge when a truck ran us off the road! I remember saying, in my dream, “NOOOO! I’m not ready to die now!!!!”

    Scared the Bee-Jeebus outa me!

  12. Sue says:

    Yes, I have had scary real dreams. I’ve woken up crying more than once and scared out of my pants! I have a reocurring dream come tornado season so by now I know it’s not real, but the first couple of times made me wonder.

  13. tessa says:

    Yes. I have very realistic dreams all the time. Not as much as I use to. Dreams I believe are a projection of your fears, hopes, emotions that you may or may not be aware of. I remember a vivid dream of our house being on fire and my family died-when I was a teen-and I woke up, went straight to my mom, and told her. I had a happy family and didn’t understand why I would dream something so awful. I was upset. She told me it is to prepare yourself in case something like that ever happened. This makes a lot of sense to me. Our minds prepare us for the worst, so when bad things do happen we do not have total mental breakdowns!
    I think night terrors or recurring bad dreams mean you’re not dealing with some issue in your life or in your thoughts.

    Absolutely! I am always trying to figure out the meaning behind them, too.
