    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...

    I had a nightmare that I went to stay on this

    place that had a room housing demons (think of it almost like the ghostbusters with their holding tank for ghosts) and it was all sealed up. Somehow the door got opened & the owners got possessed and let people stay in that room. Everyone that stayed there ended up getting...

    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...

    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...

    I dreamt of taking my own life,

    everything was so vivid. I saw myself poisoning myself and then cutting my veins. I felt dizzy and knew I am dying. I regretted my decision and knowing that death was inevitable for me, I prepared myself to die. I'm awake now and realised that I'm still alive but it's so scary...

    I don't think it is normal to just have

    nightmares. Nightmares of snakes trying to bit you/ already bitten you or a snake looking at you. If not snake nightmares then nightmares of you being harassed. I'm tired to have those nightmares. I want happy dreams :/

    every night. But then it stopped. It just went a way. Now it's back and this time it's not alone, they contain the tortures of my past. At night my nightmares run at me no stopping, no pause, no breaks. They charge like an army, forcing me to relive my past, re-experience the...

    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 keep having some kind of dream in

    which my dog dies in some kind of way and it leaves me devastated, I usually wake up crying or just really traumatized. This makes me realize that he is gonna die sometime and I know I won't take it well, and the more I think about it the more I get depressed.
