    I don't have them often,

    but when I do it's always a fight to stay alive. But for whatever reason, my subconscious likes to make things difficult. Everything is faster, stronger, & bigger than I am so I really have to give it my all. Especially since I can't wake up until it's over.

    When I started having more extreme nightmares

    when I was a six/seven, I used to sneak into my mum’s bed because I knew that my nightmares wouldn't follow me there. But the problem is, my mum was such a light sleeper that any movement from me would wake her up and she’d express her anger because of being woken and...

    Worst. Night. Ever.

    I sometimes have really bad nightmares or night experiences in general when I'm ill, but this takes the gigantic cake. At first, I had a really nasty nightmare where my mum was shouting and screaming at me and my brother to get out of the living room. When I dared venture...

    where my family or friends are standing around me as I'm pushed off a banister I'm seating on but I never reach the floor

    I had a terrible nightmare last night,

    and I can't get over it. I was raped, and I didn't know by whom and I was suddenly like four months pregnant. Everyone at school was laughing at me, and my teachers all kept asking (like typical girls) who the father was, was it a boy or girl, and that stuff. I couldn't tell...

    For In That Sleep

    The house This one is a bit sketchy and happened in snatches. The first bit I remember was me going insane and needing to get out of the house. I don’t know which house I was in. There were bits of my mind that I was losing one by one and I knew that I’d lost the...

    nightmares. Why do I keep getting nightmares about me dying from suicide, and starvation. The dreams get so detailed that its scary. I want to text my bf but I don't want to wake him, I guess I can stay up 2 1/3 hours and talk to him when he's up. I don't want to sleep, it makes...

    I regularly have dreams of me dying.

    I'm never me, I always die as someone else. I wake up right before I "die"

    Would Rather Have A 'I Want To Kill You' Nightmare Rather Than This

    This morning I woke up to one of the worst nightmares I can recall ever having. I was raped. In real life I've never actually been raped so I'm not exactly sure why I would dream of such a thing. (Of what I can remember:) the beginning was the actual part of being raped. Then...

    I had another night terror last night,

    and I woke up in tears and I was almost hysterical. I'm so scared to go to sleep tonight. I wish I just didn't have to. It is too hard.

    For the most part I don't usually dream

    when I'm asleep. But I go through periods, like right now, where I'm having nightmares every night. Sometimes they are so bad that I don't want to go to sleep. It's not even what I'm dreaming about that bothers me. It's the vividness and intensity of them that gets to me. I...

    Alternate Future

    When I dream, I often see visions of the future. Deaths, births, accidents, hugs, handshakes- you name it, I've seen it. Or at least a fragment. I've done my research on it, and most people link this to "deja vu". I think this is different because I experience this frequently...

    My Parasomnia

    Ever since I was a child I could remember waking up in fear, terrified of what I was dreaming of, and this issue has gone into my adulthood, which has become much more understanding now than it was when I was a child. With parasomnias I fall under "Night Terrors" and how I...
