Why are my nightmares so scary and violent?
I have nightmares nearly every night and have most of my life. I am 54. Last night was no exception and I now have trouble falling asleep, so thourgh i would post here. It involved apes first, then human mutants that looked human. iZt was bloody and violent and involved harvesting people for their body parts and brains...and cannibalism with all kinds of devices that could be used anywhere at anytime. We were in a restaurant, where we were led thru very narrow halls to eat. It was really hot, so one woman tried to open a window. We kept moving to find a cooler place to sit down. That woman was left behind. One of the staff bashed her skull in. She would be used for food. Baby monkeys were being ripped apart to be eaten by their parents. Screaming and horror all in this dream. Close up of the woman in the last scene-she was a metal chair in a cage, with a trap door, and she was tied, so her baby could be taken from her and eaten. My heart was beating hard when I woke up.
