What has been your worst nightmare while you were asleep?Did it happen to you after you dreamed it?Did you wake up sweating and crying?Why do you suppose our minds allow nightmares to enter our dreams?Did the nightmare reoccur over and over again until you were afraid to even try to go to sleep in fear you would have it again......

I couldnt narrow it down to just one actually...I dream a lot and I've had more nightmares than I have good dreams in fact a good 85% of my dreams have been nightmares.... Have I had recurring nightmares..YES and every time they come true to a varied degree which is a horrible thing to have to deal with....

I fell down this deep hole and went down these dark stairs, I also had a hard time climbing over a bank, and the worse one was when I was in bed, and I could not getup. I cried for my mother and I have had that dream since I was a child. I was afraid of going back to sleep and I feel like crying. I want to start some posts but I have not much time.

Recently I had a nightmare about my 9 year old son. I don't remember the details of it all but I remember waking up screaming out my sons name. It was horrible. I could not get back to sleep. The worst part was when I tried to close my eyes to go back to sleep there it was again. It was almost like I had to finish the dream before I could even close my eyes. So I finished the dream and I saved his life. at thet point I could finally realx again. This was truely an aweful dream. Our mindswhen at rest put thing from our days into different light. It is our minds way of puting it all together.

Have had the same dream for many years but it's never actually happened. Dream I'm in the woods, a big animal is chasing me. I run as fast as I can, trip and fall. Then I wake up. It seems something is always chasing me but I never get caught. Heard many years ago if, in the dream, I did get caught my life was over. Am thinking that's a myth. Supposedly people dream every night but it seems we can't always remember the dreams.
