I dont do it often but sometimes I have dreams that just really scare me to death! I've also had good ones that actually came true. When I was 12 weeks pregnant, I dreamnt that I was having a girl, I went to the hospital and didnt recognize the doctor and coudlnt see my baby's face, but he said I had a girl. Turns out I went in on a holiday and didnt have my normal doctor, so it was one I had never seen before! I woke up and told my husband we were having a girl and sure enough. So when delivery time came, it was almost like deja vu...

Last night I had a HORRIBLE dream. I woke up at 1:40am and couldnt get back to sleep. I was just terrified. I dreamnt that our bed was right next to our window and it was open. I opened my eyes in the middle of the night to see a shadow of a man standing and looking into the window. I was so terrified I couldnt say a word, just babbled and tried to wake my husband up. The man at the window said something but I couldnt make it out and he had a very deep voice. My husband finally got up and was out of it and he started saying something to the guy. I finally got myself together as the man ran away from the window. Two of our neighbor's daughters were standing outside. I remember being so outraged that he came to our window and was staring in that I grabbed the window screen, through it out and started yelling obsenities at the guy. Then the girls next door started yelling and screaming to shut up, he had a gun! He came back, jumped into our window and shot my husband three or four times and he shot my 2 year old daughter twice in the chest! Both survived and he jumped out the window and I called 911 and I couldnt even talk. The ambulance came first and everyone was fine, and the cops caught him running down the road. And then the dream ended. I felt like I had run a marathon!! I was out of breath, and I just couldnt get the images out of my head. I acutally almost lost my husband to a hit and run accident 3 years ago in Dec, and I remember just saying over and over at the end of the dream "I cant lose him again, I cant lose him again".

Does anyone else dream crazy stuff like this??

Oh yes! Just a few nights back I dreamed my 28 year old son that lives in LA CA was being chased by some gang members. It seemed the dream lasted the whole night, although I know it only lasted a couple of minutes, and I was also tired when I woke up. I called my son immediately and he was just fine, of course. Don't know where some of these dreams pop up from. I could definately do without the "bad" dreams but really enjoy the "good" dreams. There are tons of studies about dreams but I don't know if I agree with most of them.

Most of my dreams are so realistic, it's scary sometimes.
If I have a really instense dream that stays with me the next day and I can't get it off my mind, I try to analyze that and what's going on in my life at the time.
A lot of times, it has to do with too much stress.

Stress is definately one cause---it is also a killer!! Wish there was a way to get rid of it totally! But in todays world I guess it's just a part of life...sigh.......

I used to have bad dreams when I was a kid because I saw a lot of scary movies. They went away when I quit watching those types of movies. Then I saw Silence of the Lambs and for two months I had a man chasing me, trying to eat my arm. I won't watch that movie again. I think of bad dreams as coming from things you watch on TV or read, but also from stressful situations like the auto accident your husband was in.
