No I never had because whenever I'm about to die I wake up does anyone else have this happen to them?

All my dreams involving an imminent death situations take me JUST to the edge of death, and in THAT moment, I wake a bit rattled. Immediately upon waking, I think about it 'cuz I'm disturbed and can't go right back to sleep. My eyes are, like 😳!

Actually once I had a dream where I got shot in the head and lived. I kept running around asking people if they saw my wound. Crazy dream.

No. I've had awful nightmares being chased by demons and falling. I woke up screaming.

At least twice I had lucid dreams. I was aware that the injury would likely cause death but changed up the circumstances to survive. How's that for rejecting mortality?

There was one night when I died many times. I got shot, stabbed, blown up, and who knows what else. Every time I fell back asleep, I started from the same place and tried a new way to win. Eventually I did. It was very weird.

Yeah. Dreamt I was shot dead by a gang member in my grandparents' dining room, while protecting my family. Dream recurred and I saw it coming, so I took the gun and shot him.

Repeatedly when I was little - usually drowning, but sometimes bring stabbed or shot. I had really terrible nightmares very frequently. I learned to lucid dream as a way to deal with that, though I didn't know that's what I was doing.

I have died by sword, a car crash, dinosaurs, suicide, and a robot.

Once, I had a dream about the imperial Japanese army invading my house. Another time, I had a dream about Nazis invading a fictional hotel I was in. Yet another time, it was just one guy, Mussolini.

I've been poisoned, stabbed, shot, hung, stretched, disemboweled, drawn and quartered. I'm a real man of the people in my dreams. Who am I?

Yes I dreamed that I'd died, was buried, then woke up and dug my way out of the casket and dirt.

Recently, yes. I dreamed that I took a bullet to the forehead from an intruder just before my mother shared the same fate after a very long standoff. It was the most frightening dream I've ever had. I posted a poll about it in themiddle of the night.

Fascinating age demographics. Maybe that will even out over time. But yes, I've been shot in the face, and fell off a cliff and hit the ground. Disconcerting for sure.

Frequently. I usually just switch perspective to someone else in the dream after I die.

Once by a poison dart, once by being torn apart ( a creature attacked me ) once by a gun, once by a knife.... I'm sure I'm missing some others. I used to die fairly often !!!

Not that I can specifically recall but I I think I have. The most troublesome dream I've had recently was getting a D on a paper. Woke up the next morning, and for a moment I wasn't sure if it was real. Would've hurt my GP and ego.

Death by robot? There's one I haven't had. Now it's in my brain though, so it will probably occur.

I had a really crazy dream where I was treating other people with an "Alien" style parasitic infection, and I got infected, so I shot myself.

Yup. It's annoying. I stop breathing when I die in a dream. I wake up gasping because of lack of oxygen.

Yes, I drowned. Everything got so still and quiet. Saw fish swimming by me, checking me out. I wasn't breathing. My lungs were full of water. It was like I didn't have to worry about breathing anymore. All my other senses started getting stronger.

Yes, and I've seen several different versions of the "afterlife" in these dreams. All but one were excruciatingly boring and not places where I would want to spend eternity.

I usually jump and wake up just before dying. It's can sometimes be frightening.

Thankfully I don't have those kinds of dreams often.
