Why Do I Keep Having Bad Dreams?

Water, water everywhere; the rain pouring down causing it to continue to seep into the house, getting nearer to an electrical fusebox at my feet; more water every second… I run. Although I am safely away, having done everything in my feeble power to avoid it at all costs, a nasty tingling erupts in my spine, and gradually intensifies. I realize I am slowly being electrocuted.

And I wake up.

This was just the latest in a series of bad dreams I’ve been experiencing, and since I don’t especially feel like I deserve them and their horrors, I decided to seek expert advice on the causes of these nightmares: I fired up the Googles. Within seconds, Divine Caroline had provided insight.

Not all nightmare triggers have to be traumatic, however. Everyday stressors, such as job or financial anxiety, or major life transitions such as moving or divorce, can also cause nightmares.

Okay, I guess that explains it; I’m trying to find work while avoiding foreclosure, and getting the right job will involve moving. No wonder I am involved in such nocturnal mayhem lately! Perhaps it will stop soon, and there will be no more shocking adventures, horrific car accidents, or jumping from absurd heights. Maybe I just need someone to tell me “Sweet dreams” more often.

    Aside from stress, one of the more interesting factors named at the link above is – Junk Food. Maybe you have had too many jerky sticks or Whoppers, resulting in bad dreams. Maybe you’re just dreaming normally, and interpreting them as bad, i don’t know.
