    I only get nightmares when I've had alcohol the previous day/evening or when I'm running a fever. Otherwise they're ... happy-to-neutral in origin, those I remember anyhow.

    It has come to my attention lately that I see fairly lot of nightmares. Apparently I also make noises (moan?) in my sleep, I don't know if they're connected though. I like seeing dreams though, they can a useful source of inspiration.

    My nightmares are usually about death or being chased. I've had dreams where I've killed people, where people I know have died, where something more powerful/faster chases me, where someone close to me has died and tried to come back as dead, where someone close to me has been given the death sentence... It's the anxious and realistic vibe that disgusts me.

    I can't remember the last nightmare I had. I had one when I was a very young child, and maybe another in my teens, but that's about it.

    Even my 'scary' dreams aren't scary. Like, when I'm getting chased by evil people, or there are a dozen tornadoes coming down on the city....it's like I have confidence I'll be ok, or something. Kind of like watching a movie, or I'm living a weird dangerous life or something so there's a bit of a thrill in it...will I escape? will they catch me? - so maybe I recognize it's a dream all along. I have some great maneuvers in dreams when it comes to running and flying and hiding and stuff! And with the exception of one time, I always wake up before anything bad happens. The one time something bad did happen - I think I was killed - I don't remember waking up being afraid or thinking of it as a nightmare. More a.."Huh. That's never happened". I don't know...weird.

    Nightmares are thrilling and are well worth the anxiety once you wake up and get to analyze them.

    I don't really get any nightmares where I'm petrified.

    I have really deap and symbolic dreams. Confusing, depressing, mysterious, crazy.

    Last night I dreamt that I was at the airport getting on a plane. It was departing from the airport, and the destination was nowhere; representing that'd we'd fly into oblivion.

    It was symbolic of something potentially dangerous, and it worries me.

    I have a lot of dreams that forshadow events, and that can be kind of like a nightmare.
    Is it that by its indefiniteness it shadows forth the heartless voids and immensities of the universe, and thus stabs us from behind with the thought of annihilation, when beholding the white depths of the milky way?

    I don't have nightmares, and I rarely dream.

    I have PTSD. I take Ambien, so I don't have nightmares. If I don't take it, and occasionally even when I do, I dream a man is trying to kill me. I always wake up just at the point where I'm about to lose the struggle against him. The terror is intense.

    I have an INFJ friend who always tells me about her weird dreams.

    I don't get it, but they're amusing.

    Have you ever tried enjoying the terror?

    After I brought my father home from the hospital after his accident I had repeated dreams where he would come to me bleeding and wet like a soggy zombie, clearly suffering. I would dream that I had to kill him to end his suffering.

    Then I would wake up and my eyes would be wet with tears. But, interestingly, I never felt upset when I awoke although I would be during the dream. I am good at recognizing that dreams are often emotional processing while you sleep, so I do not generally imbue them with cosmic significance and view them more as a response to subconscious stressors.
