I was just wondering if anyone else here has gotten bad or weird dreams. I just woke up from what was supposed to be actual sleep, to an unintentional nap and I had a dream that felt like it lasted a million years. The dream jumped from a million different things. Most of them were weird/disturbing. It also freaked me out a bit because the dreams feel like they didnt happen at all? Idk if that makes sense

I noticed since my DP started my dreams have been making no sense or are disturbing in some way. Also I noticed that when I do dream and wake up from it. It feels like it never happened. I dont have the "dreamlike" feeling with my DP but since I'm still disconnected from myself/surroundings it doesnt feel like I have that clear transition from asleep to awake. It just feels like one continuous feeling.

I was just wondering if anyone else has had this happen.

I suffer the lack of transition between asleep and awake, like my mind doesn't change between states.

I have mostely disturbing dreams, or dreams of a particular ex that I don't want to dream about. Since my dp, i don't enjoy the dreamstate anymore. It's even worse when dp shows up in my dreams

Same for me with the transition thingy. Very scary and makes me fear of not "accepting" reality anymore oneday.

My brain has completely rejected reality and it's not a nice place to be.

I will say in the past few nights and mornings there has been a slight feeling of transition.... after 2 years

Always hope

I had two night terrors following a 2 week but of insomnia. The dreams were very colorful. In one dream, my parish priest was shot in the parking lot adjacent the church. As he lay dying, blood ran from his exposed penis.

In the second dream, I and my family huddled in the basement of our home while a nuclear holocaust took place over our home.

On another occasion, I had unintentionally drank water tainted with insecticide. I had noticed the water had a foul odor and informed my parents. They were both smokers and didn't notice anything strange.

I decided I wouldn't drink the stuff, but after an afternoon of playing ball, I came home to a cold pitcher of kool aid. I drank it without thinking. That night, I dreamt that I was being stabbed in the

stomach. It was very real. I awoke and was violently ill. I barely made it down the hall to the bath room, where I barfed my guts out. Meanwhile, my dad and younger brother were at work

at the steel mill (night shift), and they were barfing their guts out too. In a couple of days, the city newspaper ran a story about the complaints of nausea from our neighborhood. Some

pest control operator hooked up his truck to the city water line, and pesticide was sucked in, instead of water being pushed out. Today, they have valves preventing that from happening.

Feel free to interpret my first two dreams. lol

Interesting topic:)

I find that none of my dreams in the last three years is just random. I had some powerful emotions, in particular of anger and rage, worked through dreaming, that I could not feel or express in reality. All accompanied with screaming and violent twitching in the middle of the night.

Also, most of my memories (I have trauma induced dissociative amnesia) came back first through dreams, or some dream-like states.

I was always the most rational person in a room, analytical as well, but oh my did this DPDR as well as D. amnesia change my perception of human mind for good. I kept so much from myself, it is just incomprehensible, and dreams were there to translate, if you like, whatever was unreachable for me in my conscious state.
