Have you ever had a recurring nightmare?
I have not had two of the same nightmares before, but I have had two similar ones about spiders
Yea it in involves seeing the same question being asked over and over and over and over on SOH.
In the dream, I wake up, and an armed man charades into my home, and I can no longer move, and well, you might have nightmares if I mention the horror and Gore to come. Sadly this "Waking nightmare" occurs often.
One tooth falls out of my mouth, then another, then a bizarre flood of teeth start pouring on the floor... Freaks me out everytime, doesn't occur very often but once in a while is way more than enough!
That's a common one it's kinda weird how people can have the same strange dream but I've had the same exact one!
Typically nightmares allow me to lucid dream though so it wasn't all bad. I think it's because if a dream is so awful, I get the realization that I'm just dreaming and then try to gain the upper hand.
I wake up, and realize I've done nothing with my life. Everyday is a nightmare, a constant reoccurrence of the same horrifying realization. Nothing matters in the long run. Eventually, everything about me will be lost and forgotten, just like billions of nameless people before me. My nightmare is being forgotten, because remembrance, is the only afterlife I have.
I never signed up for this feels trip
I keep getting lost or I can't find something. It's varied throughout the years
I spent years when I was little suffering from devastating night terrors. Eventually I learned how to manipulate them so I wouldn't die repeatedly. I now almost exclusively lucid dream, even decades later.
No. When I was 12 I was a lot more religious and my prayers often came true. It was great to nightmare free for the next 53 years and still counting.
Yes. Damn elevator falling while I am inside. I have heard it represents one feeling out of control. That is how I usually feel. Guess I need to kick some ass and then take names to regain control. Lol
Yes, its called work ...
As a young child I remember one yes. As an adult I have what some people would consider a nightmare but it doesn't bother me.
I have hope for them
I used to have this one that a giant piece of pops cereal ate my family.
No,but if miss piggy Hillary gets elected I will!!
A long time ago, as a kid, caused mostly by a vivid imagination and a particularly terrifying telling of The Sorcerer's Apprentice on a vinyl record.
I have a recurring nightmare of being stung by a bee. Like really fast. Like it sees me and just goes, ZzzzZZzzt!!! And gets me.
If I ever did, it was just that one where you're in college and you have to take an exam and you don't know where it's going to be held.
Except that actually happened to me when I was awake, too.
I haven't had any kind of nightmare for decades, though.
Driving off an exit ramp :(
Never had a nightmare at all. I've been told that's a sign of sociopathy.
Extremely vivid dreams on my epilepsy meds though, such that I don't even forget them.
Mine went on for about 2 1/2 years until I sent him back home to his Mother ... Then it went away
If having the Clintons back in the Whitehouse isn't a "reoccurring nightmare" I don't know what one is !😱
Yes! Two, one of them I remembered last time I had that dream waking up put my in a good part of the dream, so the second time I knew to just wake up and go back to bed. I consider that my one lucid dream.
Dream? Yes. Nightmare? No.
Yes, a few as a kid, but they ended when I killed whatever monster was haunting me
I had a recurring nightmare for years when I was a young child. It was terrifying and I wouldn't be able to fall asleep and I would pray not to have that dream everyday. One day it just stopped.
I've had the dream where my teeth are falling out at least three times.
That's really bizarre. Just saying
I've had that one too. It's awful!
It comes from a deep-seated fear I have of losing my teeth. I always think about how I only have this one set of teeth and how vulnerable they are, being bare and all. I always wake up from that nightmare panicking and checking to see that my teeth are still there.
Jenna, I wonder if that's a sign you should consider dental school? I had a similar fear about my eyes and I ended up in optometry school.
I've read that if means you have been or feel you have been neglecting your teeth.
Looking for my car in a complicated parking lot.
Me too! I have it every few weeks.
Does your parking lot have big elevators too?
I've had that one. I'll click on the lock button to listen for the horn. Sometimes I hear the horn, but I never find the car. Yes, my dream has elevators, also snow.
No. I keep walking and waking around for hours, never to find my car.
I was surprised to learn that other people also had that same dream.
I end up in an alley that leads to a huge open area with a glass enclosed mall. I'm in a big city but all my attention is given to the parking garage and the mall, which I don't enter. Oh, and I don't use the remote. For some reason or other, I cannot access a remote. I can do numbers in my dreams, but not technology.
Each one is slightly different, but I've probably had at least 10 different versions of one, had my latest last night actually
In after "Trump/Clinton" presidency
I think I've been watching too much "A Haunting." I keep having ghost dreams in the exact format of the show. Narrator, testimonials, and everything.
I can't tell you the last time that I recall having a nightmare.
Well - I've been having nightmares about skipping class.
That I forgot to do my homework and was dismissed from a course I was taking.
Yes. I keep having these dreams that an orangutan is elected president.
I have it quite often. My college calls me saying it reviewed my grades and unfortunately I failed Spanish (it's always Spanish) and I didn't really graduate.
Yes. It's about polls like this becoming political.
Got you covered.
Only one political comment so far!
And as soon as I posted that another one came up.
I was expecting a LOT more politicizing of this softball of a question. Not as many hateful people took the bait as I thought.
Coming to work every day.
