no, no, no…I didn’t have this nightmare, I only plead guilty to creating it 🙂
I’ve mentioned before that I have a fascination with dreams and I do. However, I don’t believe I’ve ever had a bona fide nightmare.
“an unpleasant dream that can cause a strong emotional response from the mind, typically fear or horror but also despair, anxiety and great sadness. The dream may also contain situations of danger, discomfort, psychological or physical terror. Sufferers often awaken in a state of distress and may be unable to return to sleep for a prolonged period.”
On second thought I believe I did have something of a nightmare when I was a child…I dreamed a man was chasing me with a knife…when my sister finally shook me enough to wake me up, I discovered I needed to go to the bathroom…quickly!!!
Which reminds me of when I was 9 and had my tonsils out…when they* were putting me out with ether (which stinks by the way) they* told me to count back from 100…I started and before I knew it Mickey Mouse was racing around and around on a clock in my head.
well I did warn you that I was OOMM (out of my mind) 😀 😀 😀
they* = medical staff
