Dream A Little Dream

I have crazy dreams. I’ve had nightmares since I was little…The first dream/nightmare I ever remember…and that was recurring for a couple of years went like this:

I was around 6…It was before my brother was born but my mom was pregnant. We were at an underground shopping center (Those are popular in Turkey)…my dad and I were sitting on a bench across from a store as my mom went into the store the shop. Next thing I know, my dad isn’t next to me, my mom is falling through the display window…and then my mom is on a stretcher…

I had that dream a lot. It was recurring and stopped sometime after I began high school.

In my junior year in high school, in AP Psych, we had keep a dream journal. That was at a point I didn’t really remember much of my dreams because my insomnia had started to come back. For the project, I had to write up three of my dreams and analyze them according to three different theorists…Jung, Freud and Anne Freud (I think). One of them that I remember had to do with my mom showing up at school…I don’t remember all of the details…

My insomnia kicked back once I started college and whenever I did sleep, I’d be so exhausted, I’d sleep through the night without any dreams. The dreams came back whenever I was super stressed…but they still weren’t vivid…I just woke up incredibly disturbed and felt like I hadn’t slept in days. Lately though…my dreams have been vivid. My subconscious is REALLY loud and I don’t like it. Everything that is stressing me out, all the fears that I am trying to overcome in the daily just come and kick me in my sleep.

How am I supposed to feel positive when I’m awake if I’m bombarded by all my fears and drained of all hope in my sleep? 😐

Do you remember your dreams? Ever had any recurring ones? Do you dream in b&w or color? Do you analyze dreams/nightmares? What is one dream that you remember?

    I usually don’t remember my dreams except the recurring ones. I blogged about the recurring ones a couple of times, too.

    Insomnia gets the better of me as well and has since I was a teen. Possibly because I hardly have a family and thus always had to work out all of life’s quirks on my own.

    I used to dream in color but have mostly dreamless sleep the few hours I currently manage to get. It is hard to stay positive when exhausted.

    Since early childhood I have had two reoccurring nightmares; one is a frightening face that zooms in and out, dizzying me. This one usually occurs if I am running a fever. The other is about being attacked by a spider. Those dreams are very real to me and I have been known to throw pillows at my attacker, and even push the Ex out of bed trying to protect him.

    I hope we sleep and do not dream 🙂

    The worst dream I have is the one where I’m back home, where my dad lives. I’m walking through the trails when I hear a hunter.


    I start running. I’ve got my daughter in my arms swaddled in a white cotton blanket and I am panicked, I know he’s after me. I know he’s trying to kill me. So I keep running.


    The shot is closer, he’s on my trail…

    How can he do this to me? To my daughter?

    He’s Her Father! She wouldn’t have existed if he hadn’t gotten me pregnant!

    Now he’s out for blood.


    I fall to the ground, and scamper to my feet. She’s not making a sound and I keep running.

    When the next shot rings out I see bark on the tree right beside me explode…

    Then I wake up.

    I don’t have good dreams… not anymore… I’ve never really had them ever… except for one.

    I don’t bother analyzing my dreams… I know what they all mean… I have tried what doctors suggest to stop them… therapists and nothing works.

    It’s either a bad dream or no dream at all.

    I’ve for the most part learned to stop dreaming.
    Or.. at least not remember them.

    I know all to well of this insomnia. I really don’t have a problem with my dreams at all. I can barely remember mine. I guess I’m just boring. 😀

    I have the most amazing dreams, even when they aren’t so good there’s something fantastic about them.

    Also, what does a girl gotta do to get them smilies on her blog?!!

    I dream alot, some I remember, some not, but they’re *usually* not bad. PrincessQ, seems you need to find a way to get some release in your conscious life so your subconscious doesn’t work on everything while you’re asleep.

    My dreams are always in color. The most vivid are my nightmares. I used to have a few recurring ones as a child. I haven’t had them in a really long time. But I still remember every detail of them. I tend to dream about all of my fears. A lot lately especially. And the ones I tend to remember the most are ones where someone or something is trying to kill me.If I described them I’d be writing you a novel they have so many details.. LOL.. 🙂

    I have had a few dreams in my life that were recurring and none of them were ever good. I don’t know why our minds think it is healthy to keep replaying the bad things over and over again…. (((HUGS)))

    There were two re-occurring dreams I had when I was younger.

    The first one, I would lean forward and start flying as if I was Superman. I didn’t fly up high though, I only stayed within a couple of feet of the ground and I would coast parallel with the changes in the environment also curving back and forth along things just like as if I was going down a water slide head first. I loved having that dream as a child.

    The second one wasn’t as fun though.
    This dream, or nightmare if you will, was of me running through the woods and I was being chased by someone although I never saw them I knew I was being chased. Then the dream would always come to an end the same way… suddenly I was falling as if I just ran off of a cliff that came out of no where as I was running from the person chasing me.

    The only dream I have remembered in the past few years is the one I wrotwe about….where I am in a wreck and almost die.

    i love my dreams. they make me laugh and cry… and also make me wake up like… ‘huh ❓ ‘

    i am sorry that you have traumatic ones. i have heard that it simply means you have a 3rd eye…

    I’ve been having disturbing dreams myself lately, though nothing like the one you had as a child. These have not been the normal, though that’s for sure. They seem so real when I wake up, but then quickly forgotten. I do have reoccurring dreams about my teeth breaking and crumbling. My mom has these too, and I used to make fun of her for it– especially since she wouldn’t chew gum because of it. Guess I shouldn’t have laughed at her.
