    What is the worst nightmare you have ever had?

    Have you ever had a nightmare that has left you shaking so bad you are afraid to move, to even turn on a light?

    When I was a kid, I was supposed to be sleeping in the back seat at a drive in movie of "Goldfinger."  Well I kept sneaking peaks.  That night I had a dream that a one armed gold women was chasing me home from school.  I woke up screaming and as usual with my nightmares my dad would come running into my room.  After he calmed me down and turned off the light, I saw what I thought was an arm plastered on my wall.  Screamed again, he came running and turned on the light.   Assured me nothing was there.   Well repeat that again, and I was told I'd better get to sleep.   I cowered under the covers the rest of the night.   My mother told me the next day that the moon must have been reflecting the shadow of a tree branch and that's what I thought was the gold lady's missing arm.

      How scary for you. To have a dream like that as a child must have been terrifying.

    It had to be the one when I was young (6 or 8 years of age). On a subconscious level, I must not have approved of my father killing a chicken for the family's dinner (I ate chicken, just the same).

    The dream was being in the chicken coop surrounded by chickens, and a gnome, complete with a white beard below his waist, and a red, pointed cap on his white head, glowered with his angry eyes and pointed at me. Without words, I understood that the little people were going to embody the carcasses of dead chickens and take revenge upon us.

    I made the gasping sounds of fright that came through in my physical reality, and my sister, who shared the bed, nudged me with her elbow to awaken me out of that dreadful dream, which only occurred once.

    I continued to eat chicken until the age of 21, when I finally became vegetarian!

    P.S. I raised geese as a young girl, too, but I could never bring myself to eat one;; I simply was too emotionally attached to those birds that had brought me so much joy in caring for them.

      The little folk have very definite thoughts about what we should or should not do. I love geese -- we had two when I was little and I loved to have them follow me around.

    I do not know. I was probably too young to remember. Now that I think about it, I do not think that I had on like that.

    I can't say I ever had any so bad I didn't want to move or turn on the light, but I've had some that were so scary they woke me up and so vivid it took me a few minutes to realize I was home in bed.

      I have had ones like that, too. I used to have sleep paralysis quite often and that is really a frightening experience.
