    Just last night, I had one of the most

    frightening dreams I've had in awhile. I dreamt that I was being chased by Michael Meyers, and he was killing off everyone I loved or knew. Some people sacrificed themselves so that I could get away, and I tried--I tried so hard. He kicked down doors, he leapt across streets...

    In this nightmare, I went to the mall with my

    mom. My mom had told me to button my shorts before I left the house. We were walking, and my shorts fell down! I forgot to button them. When they did, the whole mall started laughing at me. People walking by, people from far off in the distance, even my own mother. For the next...

    I've had recurring nightmares

    since I was a very young child about being stabbed to death beneath the deck of an old wooden ship. Also about being chased by wolves. Most of the time the stabbing happens on the boat in more or less the same way, with a guy holding me in place and a second stabbing in my...

    Been having them of late,

    ones that leave me shaking in a cold sweat and unable to breathe - last night was no exception. I could see in my dream a small child sitting on a seat, with a male hand touching her, molesting her. He used his other hand to pleasure himself at the same time. Just before I...

    My nightmares are endless.

    Falling off a building, spiders crawling in and out of all the orifices on my face, being strangled by angels, or being cut into pieces by a wood chipper. Yet none so painful as this hell we call reality. I'd gladly live in a world of endless nightmares for all eternity over...

    It seems like I have them a lot lately.

    The man who sexually abused me has been dead for years but he still makes his way into the back of my mind when I sleep. At least once a week I have to throw up these bad dreams. I almost fear sleeping and it makes me tired all the time. It's been worse since my ex left. I...

    I just woke up from a nightmare.

    Many people I know and I were rounded up and thrown into a prison, where several people I know were killed by guards with shotguns for talking back. At some point people in the large area I was in began arguing with another. That gradually devolved into shouting, then fighting...

    Last night I had one of the worst nightmares

    I've had in a while, though it seems somewhat silly to me when I think about it now: I found myself alone in my old room. I was sitting on my bed, but things felt slightly off. Still, the atmosphere felt rather relaxed, so I let my guard down and got up. I paced around my room...

    Classroom

    I'm in a corridor. A man directs me to a room. I'm uncomfortable but I follow. When he opens the door, I see them there. They're sitting in their desks staring back at me. And they're hideous. I see a boy in a varsity jacket with with what seems like unnaturally green craggy skin...

    it's usually people getting killed and then I wake up and I'm crying and whimpering and It sucks and I hate when there is no way to check on the people in your dreams so you just have to lay there trying to calm down and convince yourself they are alright because it was just a...

    that turn into nightmares. Just had one tonight about not having a clean uniform for work tomorrow. I woke up and found myself in my boyfriends bedroom as he was playing call of duty. I was initially angry with him that he kept shaking the bed and that's what woke me up, but I'm...

    Last few nights I've had nightmares.

    First time I've had them since I was very young. I find them scary but fascinating. They felt so real and I felt so much emotion in them!

    I set in her chair, looking in a haunted

    mirror, I looked like her, i felt her pain. Lashes on her back, death crawling on her skin. The voices said go back in time. How did she die? And I remembered she had a baby that was not meant to be born. He killed her, the one she loved. They opened up her womb and took the...
