What gives you nightmares?
Can you pin point what triggers your nightmares?
For me it's when I have too many blankets on me when I'm sleeping. If I am too hot under the covers during the night it gives me bad dreams.
I am the same actually. When I was younger I used to love sleeping under the covers but would get very warm and have these 'green dreams' where the world had a green filter on it but everything looked the same i.e. was in my house. It would then all get really bad and I'd be chased or there would be all sorts of horrible monsters.
Also I've never liked clowns so sometimes seeing them or hearing about them would give me nightmares and if you eat some cheese before you go to bed you can have vivid dreams but sometimes also nightmares.
I am a sci-fi fan, but try to avoid horror-type movies. They tend to give me nightmares. If I am feeling really anxious for some reason, nightmares may crop up. Thankfully, I rarely have bad dreams.
It's when I eat dessert too late at night! Sometimes I dream in color.
Almost every time I watch an episode of The Walking Dead or a zombie movie I have nightmares. Problem is, I love zombie movies and The Walking Dead is one of my favorite television shows right now. At least I pretty much expect them so it's not so bad. My dad is jealous because he actually likes having nightmares but rarely has them. He's a strange one!
I also suffer from sleep paralysis from time to time, which is something I've written about here on Hubpages. Whenever I would sleep on my back or on a couch it seemed to happen. So I avoid that now and I have yet to have those kinds of nightmares since. Occasionally it seemed like it was just due to stress as well.
I have no idea what the trigger is, but the recurrent dream that I am in a prison somewhere has been with me for 30 years, ever since I really was. Strangely, these dreams are not unhappy in the main, although I am often escaping. A psyche would have an easy time diagnosing the underlying stresses I am sure.
I wonder if they are not triggered by my being trapped by bedclothes, etc?
I usually have nightmares when I have some bad experiences on a particular day. I think about such incidents a lot before going to sleep. Even silly matters bothers me a lot. So on such days I watych nightmares that makes me more worried.
My grandma came forward with a solution for it. She asked me to pray until you go to sleep. I tried it several times and found that they help me alot.
