Can dreams physically hurt or kill you?
I have trouble distinguishing between reality and fantasy due to a condition I was born with, and at times I can't understand if something is real or not, and I still think dreams are real, because I can feel the pain and sensations. In my dreams, my best friend is an evil person who wants to see me suffer. For example, he would push me down the stairs and slam my head against the ground screaming at me to die. Then, he would proceed to throw me into boiling water and cut me, or something, or he would choke me. In each dream he's getting closer to actually killing me and I am wondering if a person in your dreams can kill you in real life, eg. can the brain be tricked into not breathing so much from a dream that the person chokes to death in his waking life?
