I had nightmares as a teenager and did a lot of research on dreams. And talked to some "specialists". (I quote specialist because I don't know what exactly their qualifications would be. lol). But anyway, I had that very dream more than once and was told that it meant either letting go of something important -or- a sign of maturing in a certain matter.

When I was very young (5 or 6) an aunt took me to a children's stage play of "Peter & the Wolf". At the end of the performance, the wolf ran up and down the aisles and it scared the @#$%^& out of me!

From then on until I was middle teens, I'd dream that I was in my bedroom and a wolf was looking through the door at me and I knew it was going to come in and kill me (it was like a hospital door with a glass window, it's still so vivid all these years later!!). I was glad when they stopped!

I have had dreams of flying like Dave and Tracy described (which are great, I love those, it's so freeing!!), also of trying to shout or scream but not being able to make a sound, like Blade. I guess those dreams are pretty common. Also dreams of falling - I wake up before I hit the bottom.

I don't have recurring dreams anymore.

I have a couple of recurring dreams. One involves a house that I have never been in but it is the same every time I dream it. I am trapped in there with a serial killer who has kidnapped me along with several little girls and we are all locked in cages in different rooms. I manage to escape and have to try and rescue the little girls but the house keeps morphing and changing (think Rose Red by Stephen King). Some rooms are hidden and there are secret passageways to find to get to all the other girls. We are constantly chased by the serial killer the whole time. It's horrible.

My other dream again is a guy trying to kill me. Sometimes I just know he's in my bedroom but I can't make myself wake up in time to keep him from kidnapping me and I'm just terrified to the point of being frozen and not being able to move to fight back. He then takes me to his house. Then he kills and/or brutalizes a baby or small child in front of me and makes me watch to know what he is going to do to me. Sometimes the dreams start with me already in his house. Not fun.

It's no wonder I have serious sleep issues. I've had insomnia since I was a small child and have always had very vivid, bizarre dreams. I hate sleeping but I hate not sleeping, too.

In my recurring nightmare, I've committed a murder. I don't see it happen. The nightmare always starts after the crime has already been committed. I don't know the who, where, why, how, etc. The entire nightmare is about the guilt of living with the crime. I always tell myself at the end of the nightmare, "Just wake up . . . it is a nightmare . . . you didn't do it". At that point, I wake up.

During illnesses, I have delirious nightmares of complete darkness with background noises of water dripping and the sound of a carbonated beverage being opened. I have the sensation of wax being wedged into the angle of my jaw. I think I am biting down on the inside of my cheek.

I Have Recurrent Nightmares. How Can I Get Rid of Them?



You’re not alone. Research suggests that up to 8 percent of adults suffer from chronic nightmares, like drowning or being chased, at least once a week. “Most of the time, they’re triggered by ongoing stress,” says Shelby Harris, PsyD, director of the behavioral sleep medicine program at the Sleep-Wake Disorders Center at Montefiore Medical Center in the Bronx, New York. “Bad dreams are your mind’s way of processing stress and figuring out how to deal with it in the future.”

To find out what some common nightmares mean, read our article, " Common Dreams Decoded." But remember, trying to decipher a scary dream won’t make it go away, says Dr. Harris. “Tackling a nightmare head on can help banish it.” If you have frequent bad dreams, see your doctor; nightmares can occasionally be caused by certain medications. If there’s no medical cause, your doctor may refer you to a sleep specialist to provide relief

One popular method: Imagery rehearsal therapy (IRT), which focuses on changing harmful thought patterns. A landmark study published in The Journal of the American Medical Association found that 65 percent of people who used the therapy had significantly fewer nightmares. “During IRT, my patients write down their nightmare, then think of a way to change it for the better,” says Dr. Harris. “One patient had a recurring dream of being in shark-infested water. She changed the sharks to friendly dolphins and visualized this new dream for five minutes twice a day—once in the morning, and once before bed. Her nightmares disappeared within weeks.” Photo: istock
