    Default How many of you don't have problems with nightmares?

    How many of you have problems with nightmares?

    When people say that they have nightmeres I find it quite strange.
    The reason for that is that I don't have nightmares at all.

    Also I will expand the question to: About what do you have nightmares?

    I know that I am asking quite personal question but if someone wants to share, thread is here.

    I get nightmares when I'm in emotional turmoil or when I'm stressed. Only under those circumstances.

    I find that when my dreams take a bad turn, I am semi-lucid. For instance, there could be killer cop after my but I don't take it too seriously.

    Its funny you mention that, I have terrible nightmares. I dream quite vividly anyways, to the point I'll need to take a moment to realize where I am and such. My good dreams are so nice that I feel like I'm there, but unfortunately it's the same with nightmares. My mind will play tricks on itself too.. one time I dreamt I was stung by a wasp, and woke up with that part of my body feeling poked and uncomfortable for a good hour because my mind thought it hurt there.

    I no longer have problems with nightmares, though I used to have plenty.

    I have bug nightmares every now and then, usually when I fall asleep knowing there are bugs nearby.

    I have nightmares quite often. But I kind of enjoy it Mine are mostly about stressful situations, like being hunted in various ways. I usually win or wake up, though, so it is not that bad.

    I haven't had too many nightmares in the last 5 years or so (struggling to think of any), but when I was a kid I was plagued by them. Usually, it wasn't the content of the nightmare that was scary, although the content could be disturbing. It was more the feeling that accompanied them: that something was really really wrong. That feeling juxtaposed with the non-scary content in such a way as to make the whole all the more foreboding.

    My tentative theory is that my family's grandfather clock played a major role in my nightmares. That fucker had a helluva scary chime, with which it sounded every hour. I suspect that such chimes were often the point at which my dreams took a scary turn. Eg: at a pub with friends, playing darts (yes, this was a dream I had as a kid). We all leave to go home. Pushing a shopping trolley with a friend in it down the road. Suddenly I notice there is a full moon. Suddenly I realize I'm walking down a narrow road through the forest at night. Cue faint wolf-howl.

    Other nightmares I remember:

    a conveyor-belt with happy, gurgling babies on it, going through the sort of scanner you have at airports. When they came out the other end, one by one, they were screaming with their mouths bloody and teeth lying in shattered pieces around them. The conveyor belt was infinitely long.

    my neighbourhood turned into a giant collection of unpopulated circus-tents with carnival music in the background.

    my neighbourhood empty and overgrown with weeds. Me wandering around looking for anybody at all.

    me waking up with my mum sitting on the end of my bed looking at me. I start to tell her about the nightmare I had, then realize it isn't my mum at all and that there is no weight on the bed where she's sitting.

    I rarely remember my dreams and most of them are benignly weird rather than scary. I have had a few nightmares, but not so many that I would call them a problem.
    “There are two novels that can change a bookish fourteen-year old’s life: The Lord of the Rings and Atlas Shrugged. One is a childish fantasy that often engenders a lifelong obsession with its unbelievable heroes, leading to an emotionally stunted, socially crippled adulthood, unable to deal with the real world. The other, of course, involves orcs.”
    ~ John Rogers
