Yup and I could see my dead body. One of the only dreams I've had in black and white too.

Well, after being shot 4 times & having zero effects, I would say I can't die in my dreams.

one night I watched the movie scream. Then that same night I dreamt that I was attacked by ghostface in the house alone at night.But right before I died I took the mask off him and Dora was right there. I still died and got hung. Is that a nightmare?

I have the dream of falling then waking up, that's the closest to dying in a dream.

Recurring dream in childhood: I am in Hell with my whole family including the dog. The Devil says that I have to choose one of them to die so the rest can live. I always offered myself because I couldn't choose. I'd get pitched into a lake of fire.

As an adult, I have dreams of being shot, feeling this sting, being in shock, touching the blood, then feeling the pain, and falling to my death.
Sometimes I am in a car accident, no brakes, icy roads, head on crash.

I've committed suicide many times to make myself wake up. And once I died, then was reincarnated as my own baby sister.

How do you control your dreams? You can't

Dream control is actually very common, there's even measures that can be taken to increase its occurrence

I hear playing video games help with that. Gives you the same sense of control you have in games I guess? I play a lot and have always been able to control *some* of my dreams. Definitely not the majority though.

The age thing seems to either suggest that young people are raised in an environment so different that they are significantly more likely to dream about dying, or that with age people just forgot the dreams in which they died and no longer have them.

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.

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 !!!

A few times, which is very freaky. But by the 3rd (don't think I've had more than 5 in my lifetime) dream (didn't realize on the 1st or 2nd ones) I knew it was a dream & told myself that to make myself wake up before it happens or change the outcome

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?

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

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.

My dreams are almost always about me dying (and almost always from murder by someone or some people I don't know).

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.

Killed by a nuclear bomb and drowned. Countless times I woke up before dying, but those two were sure things.

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

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

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.

yes and it used to be a recurring one. i essentially stared in my own Friday the 13th movie, but it ended with me dying.

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

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

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.

It's not possible to die in a dream because if you die in a dream you die in real life because of your subconscious

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.

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 😳!

One of two things: I either jolt awake right as I'm dying or I just lie there, somehow still conscious (I've been shot point blank in the head in a dream) then regenerate

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.
