What is your worse Nightmare!!
« on: 01/01/2007 22:31:03 »
The worse dream you have ever had. I do not mean what you think might be the worse thing that could ever think could happen to you. What I mean the worse dream you have ever had during a stretch of sleep?

I do not know if this counts because I was in a drugged state. I do not know if the state was sleep or not.

I had surgery in 2001 to try to fix a broken leg (didn't work) but during the surgery I was woken up by the anesthesiologist twice as I was not breathing. As I was coming up out of it (the state of sleep - there was no pain) the fear was off the scale. I was trying to wake up, knew I could not breathe for some reason and was having hallucinations on top of all of this. Talk about nightmare!

 Yes that is quite scary I have never dreamed under anestetics and have been under many over the years.. Not being able to breath is very scary!!! After I woke this last March from My anesthesia from a surgery I had, I experienced something the called stridder.. I call it inability to breath and severe panic at inability to breath, while they sat and said breathe in through your nose and out through your mouth, problem was me nose was sealed shut from having a cold and normal sinus problems.. I am always congested when I wake untill I move around a bit!! Was very scary but no dream..

My wosre nightmare was A dream about me grampa being dead and comming to take me to the grave with him.. I won't go into details as it is not a comfortable dream and still bothers me....

One of the worst nightmares I had when I was a kid was going on holiday with my parents and sister. You see whenever we went on holiday we would go out the back way. Anyway my sister and I were in the car with my mum. She said have you got your pillow which I had forgotten. So I ran back into the house to find all my cuddly toys and action figures waiting for me at the top of the stairs. I ran away screaming as they started to come down the stairs for me. I ran to the back door to find that my dad had just locked it and they drove off as the toys came into the kitchen. I woke up before they got to me which was kinda nice.

Being alone and forgotten is one of my biggest fears, so I guess from the dream that I had as a kid kinda fits in with that.

There is another dream that I had a year or so ago. But I'm keeping that one to myself. Lets just say that I really fear my dark side and in this dream I was in a dark time.

I should have probably said that the dark side I encountered in my dream was not nice, it was downright evil

teh worst nightmare that comes to mind immediately is that I'm sitting in a dentists chair, and the dentist is there complete with scaling tools, and he's coming straight at me with a scraper, but instead of scraping my teeth he scrapes the whites of my eyes.

I have a bit of a thing about eyes now, and its a miracle I can put my contact lenses in!

several times. but I also 'remember' the dream when I'm awake sometimes too! not very pleasant!

I'd like laser eye surgery to make me see again but just can't bring myself to even look into it!

 How old are you? Have you thought about a therapist to help you work through it?

nah, its not that bad. I'm sure I can live without eye surgery! contacts are working just fine, so I can't be that scarred. the optician even had to put them in himself the first time, which is odd for someone like me to have to sit still and watch someone poke me in the eye with a little bit of plastic!!!! No fear of the dentist either. I expect if my eyes get too bad for lenses I'll just grit my teeth and go for the laser. if my nan did it (for cataracts, essentially the same thing) then I'm damn sure I can too!  :-\

blimey! thats more impressive that my IDing story. I'm 30 (legal drinking age 18). but then in the US they routinely ID everyone who looks 30 or under, here its usually 20 or under.
