Sweet dreams

Posted 12 November 2008 - 03:19 PM

...Or nightmares? Which do you tend to have more often. Do you also seem to dream things that happen soon after, or find out about soon after? Tell us about it!!!

I already told Gabehabe how I dreamed about what his girlfriend looked like before I saw a picture of her. Identical! Creepy... *queue scary music*

Also, when I take my super-duper anti-anxiety pills, they make me sleep for like 18 hours.... and I have nightmares the whole time! The first one I woke up to I was being stalked by this evil man, who was supposed to be Satan's son I guess. He wanted me for some reason, and he chased me across the country, and everywhere he walked, darkness, death, and decay seemed to sprout and spread from his very footsteps. *shudders* It was very scary. Later, when he caught me, he killed Larry, and locked my family inside of my old house, and held my shoulder as he caught the house on fire and forced me to watch my family die and hear their screams.

Another nightmare I had that night was were I had a baby girl, and my mother was pissed, because she wanted a little grandson, so she grabbed the baby and started smashing the side of her head into the cement sidewalk. I, of course, was screaming, but then the baby sat up on its own, turned her head 360 degrees, and started banging her own head into the cement. The baby's eyes were hellfire, and shrouded in darkness. *shudders* I stil think of that dream every now and again. ...

I've already made a thread about dreams before.

And it was because I actually dreamed in code! I saw code for rendering texture mapped triangles in software.

You know, I'm surprised I haven't heard any mention of lucid dreams yet. Those are pretty awesome.

If I don't drink caffeine (I dream if I stop drinking caffeine), I have lucid dreams all the time. It feels weird!

I've been trying to get better at having them. Flight is totally worth it!

All of my dreams are lucid. That is what makes the nightmares even scarier.

I don't remember any of my dreams anymore. The last one I remember was when I was about 4. My "security" stuffed animal (a green dragon/lizard) grew and chased me around trying to eat me and then our basement flooded (in the dream). After that I stopped remembering my dreams. I still have the stuffed animal though and oddly I was never really frightened of him, even after the dream.

Well, just remember that if you know you're dreaming, you can control it. Fear is pointless when you have absolute power ;)

That's exactly what I was going to say.

If you are truly having lucid dreams then you understand that you are dreaming, & have free range of making decisions. If you are having nightmares, then you are not lucid dreaming.

I used to experience Old hag's syndrome almost daily at this one house I lived in.

Not necessarily true. Some folks, even when they realize they're dreaming, are paralyzed with fear because they're so wrapped up in the dream. Think of kids who get a nightmare, realize it's a nightmare, and use the knowledge to wake themselves up. Yeah.

I just recently quite smoking and was using the nicotine patch to quit. On a few occasions I went to bed with the patch on and let me tell you, I had some really vivid, almost surreal dreams, where I had little to no control over what was happening. I knew I was dreaming, but it was hard to deny the reality of the dream itself.

Good times.

Remember if you die in your dream then you die in real life.
