    I often have a dream that I am trying to get somewhere but everything goes wrong and I never reach my destination.

  2. Deborah Williams says

    I have quite a few actually! I’ve had dreams about being chased since I was really little. As an adult I started getting dreams about my teeth falling out. I also often dream about the night sky: that I’m standing outdoors, usually in a field, and the sky is filled with colourful galaxies and huge planets and bright stars.

  3. Tracy Nixon says

    I rarely remember mine but there is one about the loss of two close members of my family that i seem to dream about a lot. It saddens me but isn’t a nightmare – more of a sad dream.

  4. LYNN SAVAGE says

    I often dream about being chased through an airport – sometimes by a shark and sometimes by people

  5. Gill Barwood says

    I had a recurring nightmare from age about 10 until my early 20s about being chased by Nazis and usually being caught and tortured. It was horrible, I would wake up screaming quite often. Luckily I don’t have that dream anymore.

    That I am cleaning for a friend of my grandmother’s.My grandmother and grandfather are there in the room and go in the kitchen with her for a chat the woman then says that she would like me to vacuum the living room floor and clean the sofas but as long as the floor is immaculate the sofas just need a quick clean suddenly people start turning up and the floor now has changed from laminate flooring to carpets which then ends up having a colourful drawing on it I think she has died but then I’m told she hadn’t I assume I was thinking of someone else and got mixed up only to find she had died and came back to life then lots of white feathers appear from no where and are landing on the living room carpet. It’s a very strange dream as this woman died last year and I got the sofa she had before she died.I had laminate flooring but moved house and got the same carpets that were in the dream for my new home and I also have a different sofa now but keep seeing white feathers laying on the floor of my living room carpet.

  17. Sarah Fawcett says

    My recurring dream is that my teeth are falling out!! That’s supposed to mean trouble for your children or relations – hope not!

  18. Ali Thorpe says

    I don’t have one now. When I was a child, I had one where I was walking down a street filled with trees covered in pink blossom and then I looked at the ground and realised it wasn’t blossom, it was fairies! There on the ground was a squashed fairy! Then, at the end of the road was a bridge over water around a castle and all the blossom/fairies were floating in the air above the water. (I had this dream enough times that I still remember it vividly).

  19. Herbert Appleby says

  25. ALISON M says

    I dream I’m at my parent’s house and a plane crashes in the field near the house. I can see the fire heading towards the house across the field and I’m screaming for everyone to get down but I can’t get to the door quick enough. Suddenly I seem to be on an island climbing up the outside on a lighthouse with the wind whipping my hair into my eyes. I can hear my family ahead of me urging me to hurry up but my fingers are numb – I usually wake up at this point!

The first is a desperate search for a toilet, only the ones I find don’t have cubicle doors, or I can’t get in them for some reason…of course I’m always waking up bursting for the loo! (just glad that I do wake up hahaha) The other is frantically trying to make some kind of emergency phone call and repeatedly getting the numbers wrong when I’m pressing them on the phone.

  31. Maz Thorburn says

    I will dream that I wake up and there is someone in the house who I know is going to hurt me – I realise that I am dreaming and I start screaming out to my Partner to wake me up (hoping that I will be speaking in my sleep!! And that he will hear me). When I wake I have to check if I am really awake as sometimes it is the dream continuing. Weird!!!

  32. Jen English says

    My recurring dream is that I’m trying to get somewhere (work, home, an appointment) but things keep stopping me and I’m worried I’m going to be late.

  37. says

    I don’t have any recurring dreams now, since having my children. But I used to have two. One was all my teeth just falling out and crumbling away and the other was falling. I was just falling in blackness and all around me I could hear voices whispering, though I couldn’t make out what they were saying. It was terrifying!

  38. Jannine Scatterty Le-Vahn says

    I dont often dream, but when I do they are just crazy..and feel so real that when I wake up I feel in shock and it takes me some time to actually realise they haven’t really happened.

  39. Linda Thorn says

    I dream about the future
    Even though at the moment it’s an unopened gate
    I believe in my future and fate
    In my dream I have bad luck and no good times that I can see
    I don’t get the job I thought was for me
    And my driving test where I don’t succeed
    And even though my dreams tell me this
    Good luck i believe is with me and my life will be bliss

  40. Katie Skeoch says

  47. Susan Elai Carter says

    For over 3o years, every single night I dreamt I was trapped in a room or building and the exit doors were blocked by snakes, then in other dreams it was my mum and dad holding the snakes…ready to ‘get me’ they would pretend to be okay and then produce the snakes. This dream was followed by a lion or a horse kicking and clawing my back or my trying to crawl through boxed openings that got smaller and smaller till I couldn’t escape. I would wake several times a night from each nightmare – terrified.
    The nightmares have finally stopped but I now have a recurring dream that I’m late for school and I haven’t done my essay.

  48. Suzanne Drummond says

    i dream im running through fields and theres a door a bit like alice in wonderland ive always woke up before going thru the door

They had white curly hair and red eyes and they were wearing white clothes and chased me with knifes. This reoccurring dream hunted me until I was around 10 years old. More recent reoccurring dreams have been of being chased by wild animals that just seem to come out of nowhere.
