What's your favorite dream you had this month?

I had a dream earlier this month where I was in this awards ceremony kind of place. I left the huge room because I needed to use the restroom, I looked around the building and it took me forever to find a restroom but I eventually found a restroom in the parking a lot. I went to go use the restroom but It was blocked by two men in suits telling me that I must leave. I said no then they threw me out of the area. I found a long haired man who said that he was also kicked out of the building. We became friends and left the area and started walking till we hit a river. We both got on a small boat and drifted down the river. All of the sudden a whole bunch of men in suits started chasing us in their own boats. My new friend turned into a talking can of soda which I shook up and opened. I would fire bursts of soda towards the suited men and every time I knocked a few guys off of their boats, there would be this animation of this superhero flying out of my soda can to tell me I leveled up. I kept shooting at the until I eventually woke up.

So last night I had a dream that I will describe as a movie. It was a sequence of events that had nothing to do with me, my life or the world around me, I as a person wasn't even there, it was all fictional like watching a movie.

Have any of you had dreams like this? Why do they happen or what do they mean?

i've had a lot of trauma in my life, bodily, emotionally, and the two at the same time. most of it is body trauma that of course has emotional trauma directly related to it. i've had 11 surgeries before, and each one is exponentially harder on my mind than the last.

the first eight were on my eyes for acute strabismus, and on the eighth (age 15) i ended up not being completely unconscious for the first twenty minutes. that's more common than people think with surgeries on children, since too much anesthetic can kill a child very easily. it's better to do too little than be sued for malpractice.

my ninth surgery was at age 16, to remove a ruptured testicle from a violent encounter with a group of people who didn't like me. later that year i had my ninth and final eye surgery. it was relatively uneventful.

the last two were separate surgeries to remove shrapnel from a single welding accident.

i'm 21 now, and as i go through EMDR therapy for PTSD, everything is coming back very vividly and painfully. it's 3 am right now, and i'm awake because i have come to dread sleep. every dream is a mundane, hazy vision of being in a hospital bed. the room is well lit, as hospitals are, there are no windows, and always one or two people semi-visible in my peripheral vision. i can move, but not with any meaningful control over myself, and never enough to get up or get the attention of the passing figures.

it's been four weeks, and every night it's the same dream. does anyone here have any advice to give me? i can't stop the therapy but i really can't continue dreaming like this. it's never restful and i just want everything to stop.

Oh, I'm well aware. Looking at my relationship history, I can't help but only get romantically involved with someone after I've come to terms with the idea of their premature death. It sounds cynical, but the love here is so strong that it could very well destroy me even without her premature death, so I need to make sure I'm in a state where I can be there for others most of the time.

It's crazy, I've regained the fear of my own death because of her. I feel a reason to not die. It's incredible.

I still have dreams that I'm back in school, and it's usually miserable because school itself was miserable for me. However as of late my dreams have mostly taken different directions, being somehow video-game influenced or just straight up random or nonsensical.

For OP, if you're still having hospital dreams or dreams you don't like, maybe you could put some effort into learning to lucid dream? I've heard the control can be a great way to overcome fears and traumas, if only because when you face them head-on in a dream they tend to morph into something pleasant. I have yet to experience one yet, unfortunately, but once I do I plan on making some DC posts about it.

Hey, I'm >>316
I had two nightmares in a semi-coherent stream.

The first dream felt around four hours long, with the first three being many quick vignettes of very stressful situations. The final hour placed me in a mountainous desert, very similar to parts of New Mexico's Florida Mountains. After walking though very familiar desert I found myself in a flat pine barren filled with dead or dying trees, and a ground covered in loose dust. The dead trees gave way to dark green trees, and later more uneven ground, leaving me in a forest similar to Gila National Park in New Mexico.

As usual in my dreams, this atmosphere was retained when my stream of consciousness was suddenly placed on a black asphalt road in what struck me as the same forest. I was standing near a shiny black and chrome object that I recognized as a car, then a figure inside the object noticed me and drove away. "Noticing" me included implanting the outcome of a statement in my head, which I understood as the figure leaving me there for something or someone it knows. The road ahead me turned softly into the trees, and a smaller road the size of a sidewalk extended perpendicular to the wider road. I walked down the smaller road, which was suddenly rain-slick without it having rained. It felt very cold and humid. To my either side were two rows of trees placed equidistant from each other, with the second row placed between and slightly beyond the inner row, creating a staggered formation concealing the fields beyond them.

From my right side came two figures from the trees. One was a five or so foot figure slightly shorter than me, with a hunched back and ears like pitcher plants. He had someone/thing else with him; a "man" with a short, fat torso, and limbs that seemed atrophied dangling where you'd expect limbs to be. I could not see a head, only a black stump of burned flesh where one would be. He was dragged by his cohort by a rope tied across his fat chest. The hunched creature said they were paid to "deal with me", whatever that meant. I was stricken with paralysis and fell to the ground, then I woke up immediately.

Once awake, I splashed my face with water, drank some, and had a piece of French bread before returning to sleep. I was far too tired to go about my day.

The second dream was again, many quick vignettes of terribly uneasy memories. It felt around six hours total, with the final thirty minutes being back in the forest with the two creatures, just before I left them. I was walking down the small road again in a replay of my last dream. The same pitcher-eared creature walked up to me, dragging the other one behind him. He approached me in a much calmer fashion than before, getting close enough for me to see how terribly painful their physical afflictions must be. Here I realized that they were once something else. The pitcher-eared one said that they were paid more to protect me, and that someone outbid their services. They spoke as if knowing where we left off, and that we were going through the motions identically.

I woke up just as tired as I was, and didn't go back to sleep. The second dream had only been three hours.

I need to find a way to calm down my dreams. I'm so tired all the time.

a wandering dream

with outside unknown actors deciding whether you live or die

at the hands of seemingly monstrous others

but upon second inspection you realize they are in pain and may or may not have another choice of how to live

I typically interpret dreams by taking them back one or two levels of abstraction. Yours, while undoubtedly very personal and very emotional, is also somewhat understandable considering your condition.

Not that I "understand how you feel" because I absolutely do not, but I may have touched on a core "message" of the dream, if you believe them to have meaning, which I tend to do, because I often learn something about myself in the process of interpreting them.

It was a long dream

there were many recurring themes I often dream

I was on an island, it was some sort of re-union or prize giving

I had flunked (I often dream of failing exams) and was wandering the grounds and building

I visited the shower block and the toilets were overflowing, I had to hide from other people and danger

I was followed by women

every single women there wanted to have sex with me

They were lifting up their clothes, showing off their underwear, talking cheap talk

This book cover always reminded me of the mood of my dreams. A dark, hazy, lonely world, as though you were late to something or the only one who bothered to show up. Everyone is somewhere else or nonexistent.

I remember the book being very good (mind-blowing even) but haven't read it since middle school, so I don't think adults would get much out of it. I'd probably think it was shite now too. It's great if you're a pessimistic pre-teen though, as is the rest of Cormiers stuff.

I've always wanted to be brave and self-reliant. I was raised by an overbearing and dominant grand-mother, my mom wasn't very mature (and still isn't). She was a single mom, my father took charge of it. I never had a strong fatherly figure, so I grew up as a guy with a very weak will, low determination, always relying in others to get things done, and this also made me a very lazy guy.
Since I was young, I also liked girls. Ironically, I was more confident with them, but all changed when my mom changed me from one school to another. I was bullied at the new school, so I became very insecure and avoidant when socializing. I became bitter and agresive, so I secluded myself from others, but I was actually scared of being judged.
I'm 25 yrs old, and I never had any job until the past month. I was hired to be a cashier, and was in a test period. I didn't made it through, as I was too scared sometimes and I made some serious fuck-ups. I'm still a virgin, as I keep avoiding women.
I tend to daydream a lot when I feel frustrated, scared, or sad. In my real life, I'm just a man scared of living his life, never willing to step out of his comfort zone. But in my imagination, I'm an hypermasculine guy, with no fear of anything. I'm a badass detective fighting perps on a cargo ship in a stomy night. I'm a soldier with true grit, defeating terrorists and enemies. I'm strong, invincible, and confident. And, while I know I can't be that kind of badass, I want to be a guy that most people can respect and like. My cousin is a college football player. He's awesome, but I've never told him. He has tons of friends, he has tons of girls, and physically he isn't some kind of 9/10 guy. He has no kind of social fears or limitations. I wish I was like that. Yet I feel like I'm doomed to be like this forever. But one part of me wants to keep the fight until the end. One part of me wants to believe that, deep inside me, I have more courage than I think.
