I've had the no brakes dream, and the can't move in bed while someone's in the house too.
Another dream I have occasionally is I'm back in college, I have a final exam to take, but I haven't been to a class since the first week and cannot find the classroom, or even remember which building it's in.
Then there's the opening day of deer season, just before dawn, and I realize I forgot to buy a license, and left my ammo at home!
A few times I awoke after having a conversation with my late Grandma or Grandpa, and my Mom even a time or three.

Sometimes I'll dream of falling, always waking up just before I hit the ground. Once though, I hit the ground, dreaming that I died, then I woke up in a cold sweat.

Or there's the dreams where I'm going up stairs, only they keep getting steeper, treads start to disappear, and I can barely lift my feet. Then, it's like the stairs have morphed into something like the cliffs in the Dwarven mines in LOTR, with very narrow steps and a LOOOOOONG way down.

I stopped dreaming from when I was about 16 till about a year ago or at least I never remembered them. Now I either dream about work or a special someone. I can never remember anything specific about the dream just kind of a general outline of it.

Yeah, OP, I had a nightmare like that.

I dreamed that there was no accountability any more.

People seemed to all be in a "Stupid Contest",

and "the enlightened" of this great(and I use that term loosely)

nation had elected a socialist bum president, who wanted to flush our

Constitution down the toilet.

AW CRAP! This NIGHTMARE is waking life...

I have had dreams like that most of my life. For the last 20 years 1 to 2 times a week I relive my drunk driving (I was sober, the other driver blew a 0.28) accident in which my passenger was killed. I still walk with a limp from it, and I have been setting off metal detectors from it as well. The worst part is the knowing what is about to happen and not being able to stop it. For the first few years, this dream came every night. I thank god that this is no longer the case.

I sometimes have a dream of the recovery process post accident, with a healthy dose of one of my worst fears thrown in to boot. In these I am paralyzed from either the chest or the neck down. It takes me a few days to shake those ones.

In recent months the ones that rattle me the most are dreams of failing my family. Losing our home, being unable to get them to the hospital in time to try to prevent them dying, etc. These are few and far between, but when I am stressed out from issues in my daily life that are beyond my control (currently probate issues with my grandfather's estate, and our upcoming move) they come back with a vengence. I don't complain because I know for a fact that others have it worse.

To Trip, Ultimate, and others who have served that have seen and been through more in one lifetime than any 10,000 men and women should have to go through in 1,000 lifetimes. Thank you for your service. To those who are still serving, thank you for what you do and the manner in which you do it.

Most of the time, I don't dream at all. When I do, it's usually either so weird I have no idea WTF is going on, or it's a nightmare. The absolute worst ones are the ones where a loved one dies. Those rattle me more than anything.

Sorry to hear that! Been there K, not the same, it was my fault, luckily my stupidity only caused the death of a great car and a giant tree! Me, my Cordoba and a huge Maple came t0ogether at 60 MPH! Metal plates a plastic eye socket and some permanently twisted bones are reminders. Had the dreams for years after, I cant verbally recall that night 25 years ago but my dreams sure did and they were scary as hell. Every once in a while, I still have one...

Sounds like a lot of fear and insecurity is going around during the waking hours. It is no surprise these sleep anxiety symptoms are more common during stressful economic periods.

I usually dream about getting laid off at work or something like that. But one time I had a nightmare that seemed so real. I dreamed we were rafting with friends. Which is something that we used to do now and then. I dreamed that we got out of the boat and were swimming in the river. Again something we have really done. But then I noticed that I did not see my son. Then something brushed up against my leg. I grabbed it. It was my son. He was not responsive. I immediately woke up. He was about 6 or 7 at the time. I have only taken him rafting once since then. He is now 15. We used to go once or twice every summer.
