These nightmares are killing me!!

It seems that in the early morning hours I have a bunch of nightmares. Some of them are more like horror nightmares and the even scarier ones involve me losing my boyfriend somehow. A few times I've even woken up crying because my dream of him was so sad and scary. Whenever I wake up, I feel exhausted and I have a pounding headache. This morning, my dream was about my boyfriend and I being on some sort of trip and he got attacked by wolves right in front of me. There wasn't anything I could do and in my dream I was bawling my eyes out. These dreams happen so much to me and I think it may have to do with the fact that my boyfriend is leaving for the army in a few months. Either way, these dreams are really sad to me and I always wake up tired from them. Do you ever have weird dreams like this?

I think you might be having anxiety about your boyfriend and it carries over in a nightmare. You may need to speak to a doctor about it. Are you on any new medication that would cause nightmares? I know that some medicines can affect dreaming. I used to have vivid dreams with some meds.

No, the thing I take is birth control that I've been on for almost 2 years. But some mornings I'll have terrible dreams and wake up feeling light headed or with a headache. I only get that way in the morning if I have a bad dream. If I dream normally, I'll wake up without a headache. Sometimes these dreams are really sad and I'll wake up feeling panicked or with tears in my eyes.

In a sense you are morning your boyfriend going in the army. Just talk to him and tell him how you are feeling. Always think positive thoughts with him. This may take away the way you are feeling about him leaving. Tell him how you are feeling about him leaving and talk it out. That might help your situation.

I really do think that's why I keep having dreams of losing him. He doesn't die in all of my dreams, but I will have some dreams where he's with me, and then all of a sudden he's not there anymore and I can't find him. I've been having them a lot lately and I think it's because the whole army thing is on my mind. I constantly talk to him about it and ask him how safe it will be and if he's worried.

I have no dreams in recent days, because there is no anything important happened to me. I want some dreams, even the nightmares. LOL.

Maybe you are so stressed that you cannot remember your dream. or maybe when u wake up, you immediately get out of bed.. I have read these information on the internet. They said people won't remember their dreams if they change their position from lying to sitting or standing up after waking up. if ypu want to remember your dream, don't change your position once you wake up.. And try to remember you dream..

Almost all my dreams are of this sort. Although, not about losing a partner since I currently do not have any girlfriend. Anyway, majority of my dreams include attacks by anything from a cat all the way to scary monsters that I've never heard of in my life. Of course, I am always the one being chased/attacked and sometimes there are family members who refuse to help me. There are several other types of nightmares I have as well. But the bottom line is that pretty much every dream I have is a nightmare. The rare dreams that are not nightmares tend to be very confusing - like for example one dream in which I was a captain of ancient Greek ship transporting a cargo of olive oil and wheat to some unknown destination. The trip took several weeks, nothing happened, I delivered the cargo and woke up ... It may not sound like much, but I've never sailed on a ship, never been interested in this kind of stuff ...

Lol the dream with the Greek ship and olive oil is pretty funny. I do have good dreams sometimes, but it seems that the nightmares are what stick out to me.

I'm sorry to hear you are having such awful nightmares. I seem to have them mostly about being deserted by friends, or something bad happening to my family and I'm left all alone. I had a terrible one this morning where someone told me my dad was dying and he needed a kidney or something to tha tnature in order to live. :( He has had some very troublesome illnesses lately and there has been another family member who has been less than nice to him these days ( what else is new?) and it infuriates me when someone treats him that bad. There is nothing I can do about it though and it makes me even more sad and mad sometimes. The person treats me bad too at times.

Yes, most of the time. I usually pray that those nightmares never come true because it really scares me to my bones. But the people around me told me that what will happen is usually the opposite of my dreams. So, just pray and let's hope the people around me are right.

I'm sorry to hear you have these kind of nightmares. I also have them sometimes, they are mostly about trying to escape from dogs or wolves. I know you are worried about your boyfriend, but the best you can do is to stay positive and talk to him about your feelings. Nightmares are the reflections of our worries.

You are just too emotional to yourself by watching horror movies in television or in the theaters,plus your constant worries that your boyfriend have some secret girls. These scenarios make up your days of stressful mind that you are always ending up thinking always your boyfriend.In the early morning of your long sleep you could dream of your boyfriend with another woman but very creepy as you describe its ending you hurt and crying when conscious.Do not be sill because as I can translate your dream---It means your boyfriend do not leave you behind because his love is always in your side.The horror side of your dream means that you are just worried about your relationship would end out of the other women you just planted in your mind against your boyfriend.Do not worry because he is still in love with you.
