Tonight I’m just chilling at home..downloaded a good movie but I still haven’t looked at it since my attention is totally drawn to this interesting website..After reading a few stories I’m not hesitating to share mine and I’m hoping I’ll find an answer to it.
I’ve always been a girl who dreams a lot at night, I can even still remember some weird dreams from the past, and somewhere I read it was unusual to remember a dream for a too long. My dreams are amazingly realistic and usually follow a whole scenario, with my friends, family and myself involved in it.
Those dreams are definitely not nice, or at least don’t give me a good feeling. I try not to pay too much attention and believe that dreams are based on daily life impressions but there is this nightmare which scares me to death, especially the fact that it’s repetitive. It’s a challenge to describe it in English but even in my native language too. I think it occurs when I’m already sleeping deeply, so it’s not one of those short dreams people have when they’re falling asleep.. it comes later in my sleep. It’s like a dream in a dream-suddenly I can’t breath and in my dream I’m sure this is really happening (so for a minute I don’t realize it’s a dream) but at the same time it’s like I’m watching myself from above the bed, and I feel physical pain, something inexplicably scary goes all over my body-legs, stomach, breasts.. then I dream that I’m trying to wake up from it, trying real hard and then I (really) wake up all in cold sweat and strong heart beat. (so in my dream I’m putting efforts to escape the pain by waking up).
It’s so bad that I’m even scared to fall asleep again. But if this nightmare occurs it’s only once a night, not more (thank God!) I got it very, very often. And this is eating me.. cause at some point I’m thinking – when you dream you see images, you don’t really feel anything physically, am I right?
So in brief, in my nightmare I’m observing myself sleeping from above, then the pain comes (it actually resembles to the feeling you get underwater when you don’t have any air left) And I’m screaming to myself “It’s just a nightmare!!” and then for my surprise I REALLY wake up stressed out, sweaty. It is a dream in a dream? And it’s exactly the same every time.
I never had it before in my childhood or teenage years.. I’ve been like this for the last couple of months. I’m a joyful, young girl (22), absolutely love life and enjoy every day of it. But 2011 wasn’t very good to me.. My boyfriend who I really loved left me, my parents divorced, I failed in university, and had to quit.. All those things crushed me, and I dedicated myself to partying harder than ever, drinking more etc., trying to forget.. Frankly my life is now a mess. So anyone.. help?
What could my nightmares be, do you think they mean anything? Do you think there’s a reason for them? I know this site is for paranormal stories but to me my nightmare is extraordinary, and believe me if you’d been through this, you’d agree with me. Well,I guess I wrote a whole novel over here. Thank you in advance for your reply!
