The other night I dreamt that I was planting something on a high bank overlooking a road. As I did this I knocked the lawnmower off the bank and into the road. I decided my husband must have left it there.

As I looked down I noticed that it was actually the vaccuum cleaner. I thought it looked dangerous in the road but I couldn't go down because I was wearing a nightie and dressing gown.

I decided to run back to the house to change. (This house and its gardens were none that I recognise but in the dream this was my home.)

As I started to run, I thought - there's no need to do this. It's not real. I'm asleep and I'm dreaming so I should just make the most of knowing that I am in a dream. I then went in and out of being aware that I was dreaming and not being aware.

Then I remember no more about it.

It was a very strange feeling, but I remember finding it fascinating that I was knowingly exploring my dream surroundings.

Has this happened to you?

Thank you for those links!

I have realized that I am in a dream before, but I had a much different feeling about it. I knew that anything can happen in dreams, so I was afraid something bad was going to happen(dreams can hurt, even though they're not real).

I have never given much tought to what my dreams mean, so I will pay more attention now, and check these links. Thanks again!

Hi Valerie.

I suppose if I had been in the middle of a nightmare, and suddenly become 'aware', it might have been different.

Though I think that did happen to me once and I stopped feeling frightened, realising that it wasn't real

PDM, its weird that you mention that. I have become so used to having nightmares, that I no longer believe that it is something real that is going on ... and when I become frightened, I can wake myself up without ever having to face the fear it is that I dread.

I know it sounds strange .... but I am glad for it, because I would rather wake myself up than waking up from a nightmare itself.

Yes, waking up in the middle of, or just after, a nightmare is a really horrible experience!

I detest nightmares, suffer from them maybe once or twice a month. I usually wake up from them in the morning and they stay so vivid and fresh with me for days afterwards. I think that's what makes them all the more frightening.

The times when I'm under stress or on antibiotics, seem to have some influence on them too.

Why is it though that it's always involving someone that's very close to you in an horrific way.

I think it depends on the person.

My Mum often dreams that she is lost in her nightmares.

I dream that I am running away from someone dangerous who is after me.

My elder son used to dream about wild dogs and other animals in frightening situations .

Both my brother and my younger son had recurring nightmares about being chased by an evil man in a wheelchair.

I can relate to being lost and also running. In one particular nightmare I was frozen to the spot but fortunately woke before whatever was chasing me, finally reached me. I've also dreamt of being shot.

Often the place where this transpires is back in the neighbour of my early childhood.

The evil man in a wheelchair sounds frightening, he hasn't been watching any horror movies?

Well, he does now, but I don't think he did at the time. I think it's odd that my brother had the same type of bad dream when he was a boy.

My boys used to have night terrors when they were little. That was frightening in itself!
