    Good Nightmares And Bad Dreams

    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...

    Angry At Something He Didn't Do (Story 70)

    My husband calls every female "honey" and I don't like it. I look at all of them as if I might kill them, but I remain calm and indifferent. I once dreamed that my husband slept with my sister. When I woke up I was very angry at him. I knew it never happened, but I couldn't...

    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...

    What?

    What did I dream? Was it good or bad? What did I dream that caused me to wake up in turmoil and sad? My dreams it seems hide themselves from me. I can't remember anything. I wake in pain. I wake despair. I wake and no one else is there. I sit up in my bed and look round the room...

    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!

    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...

    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...

    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...
