Just curious if anyone else has nightmares. When I dream, the dream is usually different, but I often dream in some regard that my teeth are falling out. When I was a kid I had two recurring nightmares (they were always the same). #1 - that logs were rolling over top of me and #2 - that there were blue and pink (dots) jumping like on a TV screen, though they were only dots, I knew they were children playing. One side of the screen was white, the other black. Sometimes a dot would move into the black side of the "screen" and then a hammer would come down and kill them. I had those two dreams from about the time I was 4-5 until I was 11-12. Since then my nightmares vary, sometimes about death, mostly about losing my teeth. I had some pretty vivid pregnancy dreams too. Just wondering if anyone else goes through this, is there any way you've found to decrease them? I wonder if there's some genetic component to nightmares. Both my toddlers are prone to them, my son gets night terrors as well. Anyone hear this?
