    Okay so I took a nap today and during that nap I had a nightmare. Which I hate. Here it is:

    I was driving to pick my friend up at her college campus in the pouring rain. I was getting of the freeway and stopped at the light on the onramp I guess a little too close to the motorcycle in front of me because all of a sudden this man starts ranting and raving screaming at me. His girlfriend is driving the motorcycle and does nothing as he screams at me. He stops screaming and I think I'm in the clear until he gets off the motorcycle then breaks into my car door with HIS FINGERNAILS! I'm freaking out screaming "no, no, no, no, no, I'm sorry!" he screams at me and then closes my door and we drive away. I pull up to park and get out and call my friend and let her know I'm there and I'll meet her half way, she informs me I'm at the wrong place. I am too afraid to walk back to my car alone so I call the police nonemergency number to have an officer come walk with me to my car. A girl shows up and says "Which of you called for an escort?" I raise my hand then it occurs to me and I start screaming "You're that guys girlfriend I'm not going with you!" She breaks down in tears and says she is going to sit there for a minute because she is too afraid of what her boyfriend will do when she gets back. I tell her I'm sorry she has to deal with that but I'm not going with her. Instantaneously I'm sitting down on a flight of stairs and someone reaches up and breaks my toe! The man that screamed at me grabs my keys and begins to break all of my other toes. I call 911 and then I woke up.

    This is a CRAZY dream, there has to be some reason...maybe? haha

    Are you watching/reading horror stories? Sometimes events on tV or new will filtrate our dreams.

    Are you sure you weren't running a fever? I would have been completely freaked out. Almost beat my DH up one night because I was dreaming a bad dream when he touched me. Needless to say I was running a bad fever.

    perhaps a little "driving fear" topped off w/ a dose of "fear of road rage crazies bleeding over. Keep going places! Sometimes people get overwhelmed worrying 'bout driving--they stop driving.......

    I'm thinking maybe it's the b12 I started taking...I know that when I started taking Melatonin a long time ago it gave me trippy dreams that almost ALWAYS involved hippos.

    I have wonky dreams---usually when I wake up and then go back to sleep. Don't worry about them, it's usually triggered by a fear or something you've watched or eaten. Perhaps you need some potassium or calcium, you may be having cramps in your toes. There's also a thing called "Leg Cramps" that's an over the counter med for cramps in the legs and feet. You might try taking one of those now and then. Get the quick dissolve kind, they work better.

    Stay away from motorcyles. You must have a fear a of bumping into them. Also there is a lot of road rage in AZ. As for help you probably seen on news what happens at times when people ask for help. They get whack. My son lives in AZ and seen your news, it's like reading a Stephen King novel. If you livee near Bell Rock, it's a good place to climb up half way and sit, build a prayer rock pile and meditate. That will take all the willies out. The Indians have get spirt guides there. I go every chace I get. Come back a new person. It's a great vortex. Good luck

    That's the running joke at our house. When someone has a really bad dream, we always say, "Well, we're not having spaghetti (or chicken, or Chinese, whatever fits the day) for supper any more!" Of course, we don't really mean it, but it's a fun way to laugh off a bad dream and not spend time trying to analyze it.

    I'm sorry, but this totally makes me smile.

    But your other dream? Not-so-much. :(I

    I wouldn't count on those hippos to be peaceful. Well, unless they're Disney dancing hippos. Like in Fantasia? :D

    Your dreams sound similar to mine. But I usually have monsters instead of angry, abusive men. I usually get them when I my personal life is distressed, or I am so busy I can barely think. It's also possible that the b12 is doing it too.

    Stress was what triggers my weird dreams too. Most of mine happened when I was in school and had to do with forgetting to go to classes and then showing up and finding out there was a BIG exam.

    Subconscious working, I've heard. Although a bad dreams doesn't mean that you fear the exact situation or problem you had in our dream.

    Interesting topic.

    Wouldn't it be nice if we really could understand our dreams? Had one the other night, I was in the back of a Lowes, and there was this huge space with huge tables, empty. I was grabbing material and rushing to cut it out before someone saw me using the table.. LOL In this case, I am pretty sure I was thinking a little too much about quilting! Been having a lot of quiltiing dreams lately, wonder why??LOL

    Years ago I used to have a reoccuring nightmare. I was always asleep & knew that a man was in the house & he was coming to get me. I would try to wake, but I couldn't move or scream. I would struggle & struggle to move. Finally, I would wake up, but I would be scared the rest of the night. Eventually, those nightmares stopped. Hope you don't have any more nightmares!
