Last night I had a terrible dream last night, it was a nightmare unlike any others I have had. My father was in a coma in the hospital for a few years. I would go visit him, hoping he would wake up, but nothing would happen. Then, one day, he finally awoke but he didn’t know who I was. He didn’t know who anyone in our family was. This was horrible. I was crying in my dream and I woke up crying as well. In real life, my father died over 12 years ago and I miss him more than I thought possible. I wish I could have a good dream about my father; then it would be like having him back, even if it was for a moment.

I tend to have a lot of bad dreams and nightmares. The only good thing is that I tend to forget them shortly after I wake up; however, I do wake up scared or sad. It often takes me a little while to figure out what is real and what isn’t when I first wake up. Most of my nightmares are about my past or they involve losing loved ones. I would like to stop my nightmares without taking any new medication. Maybe I should put up a dream catcher above my bed to catch my bad dreams.

  1. I used to have nightmares regularly, the one day they stopped – or at least I think they did. I don’t know why, but one day I stopped remembering my dreams. I know we dream every night, but it feels like I never have them. I don’t miss them at all.

  2. I’ve had a series of bad dreams/nightmares lately about one of my brothers. In them he dies, each in a different way. I don’t know what I would do if I lost my brother and the thought of me dreaming this scares me a bit. When I wake up I have to think hard whether it is real or not because they are so realistic to me and the emotions that I feel are so realistic that I have to pretty much convince myself that it was just a dream.
