I always call and check on my friends and family if I have a bad dream. I am sure they think its annoying but if I have a really bad dream that involves anyone I care about I usually call them and make sure they are ok. I admit I have even been so crazy to call them and check on them in the middle of the night sometimes. Most of the time I dont call and check on them unless it was a very disturbing dream and out of the few times I havent waited till morning it turned out to be a very good thing I caleld and checked on them. So am I the only crazy who wakes his friends and family up in the middle of the night or do you do it too?

I don't usually have bad dreams about my family members. However one night I had the most strange dream ever. It was about my younger sister. At that time she was pregnant with the second child. I wasn't worried about her at all, but that night I dreamed about her being in trouble and that she tried to called me through the dream but couldn't. I woke up in a cold sweat and it was 2:00 a.m. I really wanted to call her but thought the better of it. I didn't want to disturb her in the middle of the night, and it was only a dream, I consoled myself. So I didn't do anything until the next day. The next day I called my mother first just to say hello and decided I would call my sister immediately after that. My mother told me that last night around 2:00 a.m. my sister fell unconscious in the bathroom and nobody knew about it. Later she got up by herself after being unconscious for two hours! I was shocked and regretted that I didn't give her house a ring. Starting from that day onwards, I would make sure if I felt something wrong or if I have bad dreams about any of my family members, I would give them a call just to make sure everything's okay. I didn't want the same thing that happened to my sister happened again.

Thanks for the reply. I know it seems like a crazy thing to do but I always try to trust my gutt instinct. The problem is life can change our inner feelings too so it makes it a hard call on what to do at times.

Usually I just tell my mom about it. And I always believe that bad dream will eventually come good in reality. So I'm afraid if it comes to a really good dream.

I wait but I worry untill I have a chance to call to check up on them to make sure that everything is alright. I have had disturbing dreams like this as well about family members and friends.

hehe.. i experienced this. i dreamt of my sister being kidnapped and killed by some whoever. in my dream, there was my father telling me the whole story. it woke me in the middle of the night and i was really bothered because that time, my sisters life is rocky. i mean she's encountering a lot of problems on her own. i worried a lot that i had to text her in the middle of the night just to say "hello" =) normally my sister sleeps late in the night so she was able to respond to my message right away. then when morning came, i told her about my dream. she laughed.

Hi there. Yea sure I have, do I call and check on them, yes I do. When Ive had one freaky night dreaming about my family and danger or something odd, the next morning I naturally call,txt or visit them, just to let them know what I dreamt of and to be careful anyway. I dont really know why I do, but i do this and I l know alot of other people that do the same thing as well...

Thank you for the reply. I have never had a time when anyone got really mad or upset over me calling them so I figured it must be a natural thing to do.
