    Good Nightmares And Bad Dreams

    Every other night I can imagine my own dreams while I am sleeping, but the opposite days I am unable to control my dreams. Each day when I awake from dreams a I've learned how to manage my moods due to when I remember my dreams... I create the good out of the bad. Oh yes I had a...

    Yes!

    I suffer horrendous nightmares when really stressed and when I dream it is I'n vivid color and it feels and seems as though I am experiencing reality! The nights I have the nightmares I am completely anxious and freaked out all the next day!

    Sometimes I Wish I Could Just Live In My Dreams

    Sometimes it lasts all or most of the day. And sometimes I mix up some of the things that happen in my dreams with reality. That's what I don't like about it. The ones that affect my mood the most are the ones that are good but I will momentarily forget that what happened in my...

    Well, It'S Less My Mood And More My Perception Of People

    I find that when I dream of my friends, the things that happen in the dream have a very intense effect on how I feel about them. For example, I had a dream where a friend of mine abandoned me in a time of need. He's one of my best friends, but the feeling of helplessness and...

    This Is Something I Have Always Noticed!!

    Even when I was a little girl, a dream I had would be able to affect my mood the whole day. That being said, I will say that I dream a LOT and that they are VERY realistic, right down to the point that I often "wake up" at the beginning of a dream as if I was actually awake...

    Silly Dreams

    It's funny, i was talking about this exact thing last night. I take my dreams personally and my mood changes like this dream happened in reality. I remember dreaming about falling in love and that whole day my heart ached. Another dream i had was when i was ditched by my friends...

    Bad Or Good

    Example: Last night I dreamed that I was trapped in a remote cabin, snowed in with my family (all of them, aunts, uncles, parents, cousins, etc.). It was truly a nightmare. I woke up sweating and nauseous, and my jaw hurt from where I had been grinding my teeth so hard in mysleep...

    I Never Thought About It Until

    after I got married. I guess it just never clicked in my head that some of my moods would be associated with my dreams from the night before. I was in my mid twenties when I got married and being extremely introverted and lacking much self-esteem, I was terrified that my new...
