Every time I say the words, "so I had this dream," to WH, he lets out a big sigh and I can see him prepare his body for the 20 minute story. Last night's dreams were about ghosts, possessions, demons, poltergeists, suspense and was like Poltergeist, The Conjuring, The Amityville Horror, and Ghost Hunters wrapped into one. I need a nap from sleeping!
Anyway, have any of you figured out why you dream so epically? I can never find anything on it.
I am a worrier, and have a lot of anxiety, and I think this works itself out in my dreams a lot. My dreams are often about escaping disasters, or trying to find something, somewhere...trying to pack a suitcase that takes forever. Sometimes I have dreams where I have to jump for some reason, and I end up really REALLY high in the air. Sometimes I'm trying to get to a floor in the building, but the staircases are really difficult to navigate.
So, ya - exhausting dreams I get.
Every once in a while I'm rewarded with a lucid dream, but not nearly often enough.
One of my favourite dreams ever was attending Michael J Fox's comeback tour. The concert was held in a subway station in Toronto, and he sang Meatloaf songs.

Though, sometimes my dreams are silly. Last week, H kept pushing snooze on the alarm, and I dreamt we were at a carnival, and you had to gather as many rubber ducks as you could between the beeps, and then you could trade the ducks for sleep minutes.
And, I know sometimes I dream when I'm really stressed. Those dreams are OCD. The most common one is I am at like, a mall, and I have to organize the cars in the parking lot. In the dream, I do by make, but that isn't "tidy" enough. So, I try by model. Then by type. Eventually i settle into by color and send the rest of the dream lining them up.
It will all be ok in the end. If it's not ok, it's not the end
Happily remarried to a wonderful man (Aussie). I think I found the right guy and the right finger this time.
I don't even watch slasher movies like Saw so I can not even imagined why I had that dream, other dreams are about my mom who passed yrs ago, she is still alive or in remission.

For some reason my dreams are so much more vivid and detailed and real when I nap.
Same here as well.
For years, I had vivid dreams about ex-asshat stalking me and trying to kill me... they were horrible. I'm so glad those are gone.

I'm also a serial dreamer which is good when it's a nice dream!
When I was pregnant, hoooo boy. Lots of blood dreams, flood dreams, waves washing over me and stuff like that. I also dreamed of the Devil for the first time in my life (that dream came back during my second pregnancy) - it was like dreaming of 'ultimate terror' more than an actual demonic entity. Terrifying.
I only dream intensely maybe once a week though, or 3 times in a month all in a row and then not for another few weeks.
