Very few nightmares for me. Frequent sex dreams. You?
Rarely remember my dreams.
Neither really. I guess sex would have the edge but those are infrequent.
very few nightmares
but I've known some tortured souls that have them regularly, that's got to be awful
I like the nightmare ones, they entertain me.
I used to have night terrors---fucking things were horrible. Now I wear a sleep mask, and they stopped. I have crazy dreams all the time
maybe you should cut back on the TZ stuff
I dont think ive ever had a sex dream i always dream im falling off stuff or falling down stairs and it wakes me up its very annoying
yup, they are always grounded in some kind of reality. Familiar people, familiar situations, but the "story" for lack of a better term makes very little sense. Always very vivid, and I usually remember them, especially if it's right before I wake up in the morning
What exactly are night terrors? Do you have horrible nightmares that make you freak out or is it just an unprovoked screaming fit?
I thought that was just a benji bit.
no they are very real. You get caught in between being asleep and not quite awake. Usually I would "see" something that seemed very real. I would usually jump out of bed and run and get my mother (when I was younger) or when it happened in college someone in the dorm.
I would tell them one of 100 different things, snakes in my room, a man in the closet, ants in the bed, and they would be able to talk to me, and come to my room to look for whatever was freaking me out. As I got older, I would be able to identify when they were happening and calm myself down. But imagine a panic attack, but you can't tell reality from a dream.
Thr sleep mask works because when you open your eyes, which you do multiple times during sleep, you can't see anything, so your brain doesn't get tricked.
I know tl;dr
I can still remember my first one, I was 13, at summer camp and I freaked my roommate and the counselors out because I was convinced there was a big hairy spider in my bed
I think that's typical
But you're still asleep, right?
there's a gigantic joke here but I will pass for humanitarian reasons
no, totally awake, but the line between reality and dream is blurred
