Is it normal to have recurring dreams of my friends dying brutal deaths?
I have three friends. My first one, informed me (in real life) that he was intending on joining the infantry. In my dreams, he gets shot in the face, it is very graphic and bloody. I usually wake up out of breath and unable to fall asleep again.
My second friend, ends up dying of some disease, meningitis is the most common one, for some reason. This one is the least graphic but it still disturbs me. I value all three of my friends, a lot.
My third friend, for some reason he always ends up dying from either being hit or via a car crash, and in my dream his hair is stained red and blood's all over his face and I arrive on the scene because I recognized his number plate.
The 1st and 3rd dream, scares and upsets me the most. I usually have either disturbingly bizzare dreams, or very depressing/macabre ones. I don't watch horror movies a lot. I want to know why I have these dreams. Could them graduating have anything to do with it? I have an additional year at high school so I am going to stay on at school, all alone, without any of my friends. They all leave school in June/July, and my first friend is joining the infantry by that time afterwards.
