Last night I dreamt

I dreamt of black rats running around in the garden last night, I watched the horror scifi movie Species before going to bed late. We normally have black starlings in our garden. :laughing:

Woke up this morning after an awful dream, I felt like I was paralyzed, struggled to move but couldn’t. I was laying down in what seemed like a field, it was dark & murky. There was this hideous squealing in the background. I struggled to wake myself up. I’ve had this kind of dream before, thankfully they are rare. It’s known as sleep paralysis apparently.

I get that too! Though I haven’t had one for years. Used to get it a lot. It’s absolutely terrifying. I used to get a loud drill/alarm sound as well.

“I don’t dream, I sleep” (misquote of someone, can’t remember who!)

As I understand it, sleep paralysis, you’re somewhere caught in between sleep & waking up. I heard some superstitions about phantoms & sleep demons but I refuse to believe it as it makes even more scary. :open_mouth:

Kate, I’m not sure if you’re joking :grin: but just for the record, R.E.M. song “I Don’t Sleep, I Dream”

I had a dream about being scheduled to play a concert, but when it came time I didn’t actually know how to play the instrument or read the music.

It’s like that dream lots of people say they have about being unprepared for a test or something.

(I am not actually a musician, for clarity – after high school band, I’ve played guitar in public a total of 4 times.)

Seriously I must dream as we all do but I very rarely remember them. I have a notebook in my bedside drawer to write them down if I wake up remembering them but the last time I wrote in that was December 2020. The dream was about going to a conference on my own in a large mansion. My sister was there with a separate group. I tried to swot up a presentation I was giving. There were lots of people there in groups who I didn’t know and then I saw my uncle arrive with a group of friends. There were lots of confusing staircases over 6/7 floors and I found it difficult to get from one floor to another. The previous dream in April 2021 was about being in a lift which wouldn’t stop at the right floor. Maybe connected with that unpreparedness for something/fear of not getting to where you’re supposed to be.

This happened when I was a kid. I wore braces on my teeth, after having them out, I had to wear an acrylic mouth guard at night for a while until my new straight teeth settle in. One night I dreamt I was eating and being perplexed why the piece of meat I was chewing was so tough. I woke up, I had been chewing on my mouth guard. :face_with_open_eyes_and_hand_over_mouth:
