Sweet Dreams


Have you ever dreamed you were the opposite sex?  Did it freak you out both in the dream and in reality?  I have dreamed this more than once.  And it has freaked me out.  Do I want to be the opposite sex?  Or is it just morbid natural curiosity? 

Have you ever dreamed something that left you feeling sad, angry, or guilty--whatever emotion you may have experienced in the dream when you wake up?  I have.  I have woke up feeling angry and not because I was in a bad mood--although it didn't help.  It was because of the dream I had.  And then I have to spend the better part of a day convincing myself it was just dream.

Have you ever dreamed you could do something you can't really do?  I often dream I can figure skate.  Like Kristi Yamaguchi!  I will pull off triple axles, triple toe loops and the whole thing.  However, when I dream I have magical powers they always fail me.  Now where is the logic in that?  I couldn't do a triple anything in reality, but for some reason I can do that in a dream but not twitch my nose and make things appear.

Have you ever dreamed something scary?  And you wake up scared to move.  Scared to breathe.  I had a series of bad dreams the other night, and never was I so grateful for my little man to wake me up because, "one of his bad dreams did not get caught."  (in his dream catcher)  Well neither did mine.  But I pulled up my big girl panties and got out of bed to take care of things.  I set the boy up on the floor next to our bed, and climbed hastily back into my own.  I scooted as close to husband as I could get and grabbed his hand.  He was my reality.  I was seriously freaked out by these dreams.  When I drifted back into sleep, the dream had shifted.  Instead of being caught in the midst of the scary things, it was a movie I was watching.  Well I suppose a movie is easier to dismiss.

What have you dreamed lately?  Don't be shy.  We don't judge.  Play along with Glamazon!

I haven't had many dreams lately...haven't had enough deep sleep I guess.

But I remember shortly after Eric and I were first married dreaming that someone broke into our apartment and was attacking our child (who we did not have at the time), I woke up crying and scared and freaked out.

Usually when I dream I know that I am dreaming and more of an observer on the side wondering what is going to happen next.

It jsut so happens to be crazy dream week at our house. My son, my hubby and I have all woken from bad dreams this week. What could it MEAN???

I have dreams where hubs is cheating or I'm beating the crap out of my kids - always wake up in a bad mood after those and I am scared as to why I have them!

I have some wierd dreams but not usually scary. My daughter was away at camp this week and not having her here brought on some weird dreams.

Oh yeah. I dream so vividly most nights. My dreams are intense and I either wake up scared, laughing (which is always funny in itself), or just plain stressed. It's hard for me to get a good nights sleep because my dreams are so crazy!!

The last scary dream I had took place in my old elementary school. I was at a high school reunion with my husband and kids and we were attacked by zombies.

I hate scary dreams! When I have them I usually feel just like you said, I don't want to move. I end up waking Martin up and just to hear his voice makes me feel better! lol. I remember I woke up once dreaming that he had cheated on me (when we were dating) and I was upset at him the whole day. He was like - whats wrong are you ok? and I was like - no I'm not ok! whats going on with us!? whats happening!? lol I finally told him it was the dream and he was like, its only a dream, I didn't really do that, and just to hear that for some reason calmed me. its so weird, its like I know in my concious mind the dreams aren't real, but my subconcious still feels them ya know? its so funny how that happens! My mom used to tell me when I was little and I'd have a nightmare to "think of good things", and I realize I say that to myself sometimes if I wake up from a nightmare with M. :)

I had a dream about a serial killer. He found out that I had witnessed his latest murder and decided to come after me. He cornered me in a treehouse (?!), which was when I remembered, "Hey! this is MY dream!" I punched him the throat, hard enough to knock him out of the tree. He broke his neck in the fall and that's when I woke up, feeling vaguely horrified and oddly victorious...

I dream sooo much!!

The dreams vary but I definitely wake up feeling the way I felt in the dream.
Once I dreamt that I was falling off a mountain & that's when I woke up, scared & as if I was on the edge of something.


Yes & I have had scary dreams too!

I don't dream much anymore -- I'm supposing it's because I never hit that deep stage!

When I'm pregnant, however -- SCARY! with Rachel, I had nightmares about getting back together with ex-husband and ex-boyfriends. YUCK! Made me want to eat Folgers, like in Nightmare on Elm Street!

The Drama Mama said...

If I dream I don't remember them, but I do remember having very vivid dreams when I was pregnant with Scooby. One such dream seemed so real that I swear I literally jumped 3 feet out of bed and snuggled closer to my hubs and stood staring around the room for about 5 minutes before I was convinced it was only a dream. It was Jeeper Creeper type bad.

Jingle said...

oy vey, the other night I dreamt that my ex-husband and I got remarried and the minute I had the ring on I went into panic mode because I knew I wanted out already. I woke up that morning very off kitler. I have also dreamt that I can do awesome ballet moves.

I've dreamt I could fly (more like hover a la anti-gravity), I've dreamt of bad guys coming after me, I've dreamt about smoking (and almost believed it when I woke up), and only a few times became cognizant in the dream that I was dreaming.

The worst? Dreaming I had a test to take that I hadn't studied for and never shown up for class. Never did that in real life. Hmmm.

The one where i woke up and i was upset

Mamma Christine said...

ooh you gotta check out dreammoods.com I analyze my dreams there all the time. All the freaky dreams usually mean something pretty insightful. I LOVE dreaming now!! I learn all about myself. They have a dictionary, where you just look up anything you saw in your dream and it tells you what it symbolizes. Very cool.

I always have weirdo dreams. I hate it when i fight with someone in a dream and the next day I can't remember if I should still be mad at them or if it was all a dream!
