Dreams?
 
I'm not positive where to put this so I'll put it here.

I'm a strong believer that your dreams mean something and last night I had the worst dream/nightmare. Normally I don't have dreams, and when I do I don't remember them. What do you think it means? Do you have crazy dreams? What do you even think about dreams?

I was driving on a road, it was a nice day out and I had my two dogs in the car. As were driving along the speed limit goes down to 30MPH and I drive over water. There was a tractor trailer infront of me and another car, it slowly slid off the road into the icy water, and so did the car inhead of me. I take my car and I drive it to the left so I don't go in, then I get out (leaving my dogs in the car) to go help the other people out of there cars when all of a sudden my car slowly slid into the river, with my dogs. I called 911 and told them what happened but they said they didn't have the, "funds to help me". So I was going to jump into the water when all of a sudden my fiance shows up and tells me, "no, just let them die slowly, they are all probably dead anyways the river is so cold." I didn't know what to do so I let them all die. Then I made myself wake up because it was such a bad dream.

:shock:

Did you see a news story about a car accident that day or anything?

I think that dreams are our brains' ways of sorting out and "filing" all of the information we took in that day. I learned about that theory in ap psychology and it makes the most sense to me.

Imagine your brain as a room with a bunch of filing cabinets. At night, it's sorting everything out that happened that day and "filing" it away. So if you heard about a car accident, that's going in the "car accident" file. When that drawer is opened your brain might suddenly remember about this other accident that happened a while back about a truck that fell off a bridge because that memory is stored in there also. That's a rough example, but hopefully you get the idea.

Most nights I can figure out while I dreamt what I did. I have to think quick though because I can only remember them for about 1/2 an hour after I wake up.

But sometimes I'm like "what the heck did I eat last night?" because they're so weird. That only tends to happen if I'm very restless and can't get into a deep sleep... it's like I'm subconsciously willing the dream to have a certain outcome. IDK, it's weird ;)

I love dreaming though, lol

I agree with above, I believe that when you're dreaming you're perhaps actually processing information you collected when you were awake.

The other choice I believe is that dreams tell something about our uncouscious mind or feelings. I daren't to try to interpret more what that means, but have you felt helpless or lonely recently? Or that you're alone in some tricky situation without help?

I always ALWAYS have really weird screwy dreams. I've learned to accept that dreams are just dreams, they're random thoughts and memories and imaginations that you're brain is thrown together for not much of a reason at all. Sometimes they have to do with something you saw/did that day, sometimes they don't.
Don't worry about it!
