    I know that I am asking quite personal question but if someone wants to share, thread is here.
    If a nightmare is defined as a dream that scares me rather than just a run of the mill bad dream,
    I have not had one in many years.
    I used to have them a lot when I was a child, and also when I was older,
    before I did a lot of emotional healing.

    Sometimes when I'm stressed out, I dream about tornadoes or getting shot,
    but I'm not actually afraid in my dream.

    The last nightmare I remember was that my mother wanted to kill me.
    I used to frequently dream of falling. That was scary, too.

    I never have nice dreams, don't know if they could be called nightmares but they're definitely not pleasant.

    The usual format of my dreams is I'm at my old high school, oddly it never bares any resemblance to the actual school building. I'm searching for my unrequited crush/brief girlfriend but can't find her or I see her briefly rounding a corner in the hall. Eventually I get the feeling that I'm not supposed to be there and I'm afraid of getting caught by the principal. (After I dropped out of school in junior year I went back a few times to see my friends but I didn't have a guest pass and the principal caught me. I didn't get in trouble, he just told me to leave but I felt mortal fear.) The fear of being caught grows, I see the principal and run way eventually I'm frightened awake.

    I don't dream very often but most of the time it's a variation of that basic plot. Every frickin time.

    Then there are the dreams that are almost a sex dream but I always get cockblocked. Those suck.

    I don't have nightmares. I have dreams that could be nightmares because they are sometimes quite disturbing stuff, but I don't think they are nightmares because I'm not scared in them.

    The last real nightmare I had was when I had really high fewer as a child.

    I'm relatively dreamless until I know something very stressful is coming up, and then all of the sudden nightmares come in rapid-fire succession, two or three a night.

    The feeling wears off after about fifteen minutes, but still. It's ridiculous.

    I have nightmares every now and then. Mostly, I dream that I die or am about to die, or that a close friend dies.

    As a kid, I dreamt that I was being chased. Every single night. For years. I was actually scared of going to sleep. The nightmares stopped one night when I found a horse from a movie I had seen that day, and fled. Best night of my life.

    Occasionally, when under great emotional stress, my dreams involve massive amounts of jealousy.

    I haven't had a nightmare or a bad dream since I was a young child. I love my dreams.

    I rarely ever have nightmares either. Though when I do, I find the frightening aspect is always something to do with a phenomena of nature chasing me while I'm unable to hide or get away (like a tornado, tsunami, whirlpool, water spout). It's really the feeling of being overwhelmed by something out of my control, which, you guessed it, is the emotion/stressor/event in reality that causes such nightmares.

    When I was a child, however, I did have nightterrors (which is...a nightmare + hallucinations on waking). Most were about darkness swallowing me up. The worst one was where I dreamt that bees flew in my bedroom window and were attacking me as a swarm. I woke up, and started screaming because my senses were going haywire and I mistook the purple static I saw (I guess from waking up so fast) as bees, the movement of the blankets settling on me as the bees attacking me, and the very quiet hum of the AC as the sound of the bees. I remember even when my mother sat down on the edge of my bed I was so far gone mentally that I thought she was a giant queen bee.

    Sleep is the reprieve I get from many a nightmarish days.

    So no, in the technical sense, I do not have problems with nightmares.

    I have those, but I don't think they count as nightmares if you win.

    When I was sleeping in the compound that they held Ghandi in prison for (which has been reconverted into a community centre) I woke up crying two nights in a row, not knowing why.

    Not to say I haven't had my share of creepy disturbing nightmares, but I really don't have a problem with them.
