Do you have regular nightmares? I used to when I was a kid
but then only dreamt rarely for many years. Now I'm having
them regularly and they're so vivid I think they're real
until something horrifying happens which makes them duoblt
horrible. They stay with me for days afterwards.

So how about you? Do you wake up in terror often?

i rarely have nightmares. i couldn't even remember one
nightmare, if you would ask me. do they bother you to the
extend that they affect your life negatively?

I just can't get the imagery out of my head and it does
bother me for a day or two afterwards. Like I don't believe
in ghosts but because last night I had a nightmare about my
mum coming back from the dead I don't want to turn the
lights off tonight.

I still remember some of the ones I had as a kid they were
so vivid.

Like I said I haven't had them for years but they're back so
I must have some shit to work out.

maybe once a week i'll have unpleasant dreams that i can
actually recall for more than a few minutes after waking,
but they mostly dissipate pretty fast. still unsettling,
just nowhere near as vivid as the rebound nightmares i got
from laying off weed, had some fucking crazy ones then... i
mostly quite enjoy dreaming now though

jesus sounds pretty bad, yeah im no psychologist but it
sounds like you have some sort of supressed
emotions/memories that need to be resolved in someway,

Yeah innit. Does make me wonder why I had such vivid ones
when I was a kid as well.

yeah its weird in it how you can go through periods in your
life where you dream much more, I only guess its either down
to your current mental situation, you might only be barely
aware of, or your brain chemistry changes, diet?, weather?
all sorts of variables.

I know sometimes I have dreams and they seem to be
amalgamations of things ive seen and done through the day, I
can only imagine its some weird way the brain encodes
memories like when your rendering some graphics, otherwise
its terribly nonsensical

huh, i just rewatched the original "blair witch project". i
remember watching it in the cinema, and people being scared
as fuck. hihihi. such a good piece of pop culture. all those
clones that came afterwards... much props to the makers

must say, im super-rarely scared. im more anxious about life
and stuff. but i love scary stuff. and i must say, that some
vr experiences brought that scare back that i had as a child
watching stuff i shouldn't have watched. i got traumatised
at around 12 watching "faces of death". i think i wrote
about that on here

Recent nightmares:

- About to be executed...

- Chatting with my wife while casually cutting my dog’s
limbs then realising what I’m doing and panicking (to say
the least)...

- Casually (it’s a thing in my nightmares) going to my
kitchen today get a massive gun from the broom cupboard, and
fixing it onto a tripod. I then looked out the window and
seven storeys below across the road was a group of people. I
casually began shooting at the group without even looking. I
then sat down and thought “what am I doing?”. I waited
for the cops to arrive and an inspector was sat down next to
me asking why I had done this, and I just couldn’t
explain.

- Losing my dog or him disappearing

- End of the world scenario. (Always water rising and a
twist in the horizon)

Good thing about these nightmares is that you wake up and
feel great that it was a dream. They’re so real.

I don’t have them too often but when I do they’re always
hyper realistic and fucked up.

Yeah I dreamt a few times of big passenger jets being in the

still. Creepiest bit was that hey were flying upside down.

try to explain your nightmares.. most of the time it's
telling you something that's bothering you or keeps you busy
in real live.

@tony and @russell, yes some stark images stay with you, I
was reading a lot of surrealist European comics at the time
so that probably effected my mental processing

slides interchanged paths so you could go from one to the

I know what it's like to have nightmares that stick with you
for a few days. When my home was robbed (and my computer
with all my music project files stolen) in 2015 I was
traumatized and had recurring nightmares about coming home
to my house at night with a burglar waiting in ambush for me
somewhere inside. In the dream, my house was a much bigger
version of itself with a layout that was always changing and
rooms I had no memory of and couldn't predict. The dream
would always end with me walking into one such room and the
burglar stepping out from behind a hiding place to put a
loaded revolver to the back of my head. Right before they
pulled the trigger each time, I'd wake.

I've had other recurring nightmares, and many other
non-recurring ones. Most days, I'm much happier when I don't
dream at all. I'd rather no dreams than a mixture of good
dreams and nightmares. Even the "good" dreams have a
tendency to negatively affect my psyche, because they're
like a better life dangled in front of you and then yanked
away.

I think as crazone says, most nightmares can be explained by
some trauma or deep anxiety in one's waking life. But I
think Hyperflake is also right that they're sometimes just
your brain's encoding of daily activities. My most recent
was just last night, and in it my cat's litter box was the
size of a horse's trough, and she had filled it up entirely
with poops, and I had to scoop all the poops. Maybe that's
not a "nightmare" in the classical sense, but it was shit.

i wake up in terror... but no nightmares.

I can control them somewhat at times.

I often have nightmares.
There seldomly happens anything violent or scary, but the
pictures my mind comes up with, could be straight out of a
horror flick. Or they couldn't, because the weirdness and
horror is unmatched by any film. I however came to enjoy my
nightmares. They are visually creative, and psychologiclly
really effective in inducing fear.
All in all i have to problems with them.

I had quite a specific dream last night I remember, I was in
college or university or something, running this experiment
with 3 different flasks of fluid/chemicals on each side of
the room and a French delegation of a man and a woman came
to give me a prize for my experiment, and the French guy
opened one of the flasks and saw it had evaporated mostly
and realty arrogantly said their is a penalty to your prize,
So I told him to stick his prize up his arse, and I remember
getting really angry and thinking im going to hit this guy
and walked down a busy corridor after him. Then I woke up

a couple weeks ago i was on the elevator down after da work
and one lady says to another "good night mare" as she steps

it took a good few seconds of processing before i realized
it was actually "goodnight, mar" as in mary, marilyn, etc.

avent read the full thread, but heres a trick to help
realize youre dreaming that might work for anyone to control
your dreams.

its not a new thing and i posted it some time before.
when i told a friend of how i loved to float or fly in
dreams as a kid and somehow lost the ability, she told me
this trick:

look at the open palms of your hands while you´re awake and
say to yourself "i´m awake" repeat it for few seconds and
do this regularly like once or twice every day. over the
course of a few days you might find yourself remembering to
look at your hands while youre dreaming and shazaam, you´re
the master of your dreams .-)

tried that long time ago and i got it working to the extent
of realizing im dreaming sometimes even being able to alter
a dream before i woke up.

Last night I had an ‘episode’. I woke up and saw these
dark figures in the bedroom (like evil midgets), surrounding
the room. Completely lost it, kicking and screaming until
reality set in. Somehow managed to move the bed to the other
side of the room during the panic and accidentally hit my
wife in the face.

yeah perhaps phasing into your dimension temporarily

Ive never seen any shapes or shadows, Ive had weird
unaccountable occurrences, once a pinboard was taken off a
hook and placed on top of the kitchen bin twice in
successive days, and I was the only one there, and it
couldn't have fallen without the wall peg coming off, I
really don't understand that to this day
