What are my dreams trying to tell me?
Do you usually remember your dreams at night? Are there any recurring themes?
I used to pass through a whole night of sleep, probably dreaming several times, but never remembering any of it. These past couple of weeks I’ve been having vivid dreams and remembering most of it when I wake up. A lot of the times it’s been rather unpleasant dreams that have made me wake up with my heart pounding and a feeling of wanting to cry.
A couple of weeks ago I had a really unpleasant dream and I actually woke up screaming. I remember screaming in my dream and thinking I had to focus and try to scream as loud as I could and I finally woke up from hearing myself scream. Once I was awake, I had to lie there for a while to try to figure out what had just happened. I remember my vision being kind of foggy for a couple of seconds before I was able to calm down and get my heart to stop racing.
A few weeks before the above dream, I had a bad dream too – and that time I woke up feeling like I just wanted to burst into tears. Having bad dreams can really destroy a whole day.
