It's Okay…It's Only A Dream!

After reading Sarah Heyward’s Item of the Day yesterday, I got to thinking – for the last few nights I’ve had the same dream about my teeth falling out (which I might add, I’ve had on many occasions before).  It’s really awful – I wake up  in sheer panic, frantically checking that my teeth are still there!  In this dream I seem to have the compulsion to literally push my teeth out with the tip of my tongue – I swear, my teeth fall out like my gums are made out of butter! I then proceed to catch said teeth in my cupped hands.  I mean, I know I love cheese but come on, why do you haunt me so?

I also have another recurring dream which involves a mouse that decides to run up the outside wall of my house, enters my bedroom through an open window and then simply sits there staring at me from the windowsill – then the dream ends. Weird, huh?  Do you have a recurring dream?  We would like to know – which recurring dream wakes you from your slumber night after night?

    Despiste i’m not dreaming lately i dreamed a lot like i was falling.It’s hard to explain how uncomfortable and weird feel you’re falling of some place and you have no idea where you gonna end. And thank God i always wake before i hit the ground.

    I have this dream a lot where my arms are really weak and I’m trying to slap or hit someone (idk why, but they deserve it haha) and I can’t! And sometimes they hold my arms so I can’t even try.

    i am one of those people who dreams every night and wakes up remembering what i dreamt about. i would have to say that a good 60 % of all my dreams i am always being shot. i dont know what this means, cuz i never die. i just always get shot. by weird people too. one time michael douglas shot me through the back window of my old firebird (i havent had that car in years and the last time i watched a michael douglas movie was i dont know when). i think the first dream i had about being shot i was in about the 2nd or 3rd grade. it was so real (which all of my dreams are). i was shot in the back of my head and in the dream i touched the back of my neck and looked at my hand which was covered in blood. i woke up and touched the back of my neck and it was soaking wet and i swear when i first looked at it my hand looked red but it wasnt it was just sweat. i used to have such bad night terrors that in the 3rd grade i decided the only way to make them stop would be to get a brain transplant. my parents didnt think it was a good idea. i am now 25 years old, still having night terrors and dreams every night. my boyfriend doesnt know what to do when i wake up screaming.

    My most common dream is that a thief breaks into my house while I’m sleeping. I guess it’s a nightmare rather than a dream… I’d say is one of the fears most people have in my country.

    I have the teeth falling out dream pretty often. In mine, I bite down wrong and my teeth just start breaking and falling out. Those dreams always feel real.

    Another dream that I have at the end of every semester, around finals time, is that there was a class that I enrolled in and completely forgot about. I never went to it, they never dropped me, and now I’m going to fail it. Those dreams always seem real, too, even though the school that it takes place at is like a mixture of every school I’ve gone to from high school until now and I can’t find my way around it.

    I cannot believe that so many other have experienced terrible teeth dreams! I had the same one for about a year; I’m at a garden party and then rush to the bathroom only to push my teeth out and then not speak for the entire evening with my teeth cuppsed secretly in my hands!

    OMG I have the same dream about my teeth falling out AND going to school and failing even though I’m 26!

    i don’t usually have bad dreams or nightmares. When I sleep enough to have a dream, its almost always something about a version of my future, husband, kids, kitchen time…. I had a nice dream where I was married to a professional hockey player with two sons, and we were playing in the ice rink. Woke up super excited to meet him one day. :)

    I always have dreams about my teeth falling out, too. But in my dreams, when I use my tongue to push them out, my tongue just sort of rolls out my mouth; you know, like in cartoons? I wake up in a total panic, and have to very carefully poke around in my mouth to make sure all my teeth are there. Sometimes, it feels SO REAL. It is so unnerving.

    My recurring nightmares include not being able to stop my car in time before it hits something/someone; flying; being in my last semester of school and failing (and I graduated college ten years ago!); and chasing something but not being able to catch up.

    I always dream that I’m back in high school and missed one of my classes or got lost in the school.

    My recurring dreams involve fighting ferocious animals to the death. So far I have fought off four sharks, a bear, a whale, and a snow leopard. Weird right? At least I always come out on top!

    I dreamt someone stole my precious camera and it kept happening in several different situations. I woke up feeling so sad!

    I have the “teeth falling out” dream a lot too. That’s textbook Psych 101 indicator of stress. I also dream that I’m pregnant a lot, and I don’t know who with, how it happened, etc. Feels so real!

    I have the teeth falling out dream a lot, too, but most of the time mine crumble. Bizarre… I hate it! I figure it is always ’cause I am stressed and I read once it is because you’re feeling self-conscious (don’t know the validity of this one, though). Whenever finals roll around I always have dreams about missing tests or a course all of a sudden appears on my schedule that I was supposedly enrolled in all semester and never showed to.

    My dreams are always detailed and epic. I’ve often dreamed of surviving the
    apocalypse or running around on some chase or adventure. I wonder what that
    means but never look it up. The other day was different, I woke up crying, I
    had dreamt of my Grandpa who passed away years ago. We had a visit and talked
    while I put some aftershave on him because he said he was going to visit
    Grandma (who is still alive). I forgot to ask her if she dreamt of him that
    night too, how weird would that be!

    Even when my dreams seem scary ir. zombies, war, spy’s, shootings, etc. I never feel that it’s a nightmare, I still wake up excite to share my adventure with anyone who will listen.

    Last night I had a zombie apocalypse dream. The night before I dreamt that I was driving and ran into a car in front of me even though I hit the brakes as hard as I could; surprising that scared me more than the zombies.

    I don’t know how many immaculate conception dreams I’ve had…where I’m pregnant but I don’t remember who I had sex with (BTW, I’m a virgin, so I couldn’t be having these dreams because of my promiscuous lifestyle). I also have dreams about my mom having another baby, or my roommate, or my friends in high school…super weird.
