well i dreamt the other day that i was stuck face down in a thick dark watery bog and that it was pulling me in, i dont know why i had the dream but the whole day i was put in a really foul tempered mood and i knew i was in it the whole day but i couldnt help being like it, it wasnt particulary a hot day, we were having a little bit of rain (but i do like the rain to be honest) and i had a little head ache when i had woke up (probably from the stress of the nightmare). i didnt die in the night mare but i wasnt saved, i just sort of stop dreaming about it and moved onto another part of my dream. nothing bad has happened to me except the bad temper i had. although it only lasted about 10hours and now i feel fine, although still abit weird feeling when i think about my dream, like a defencless feelings, like i might have it again.

I dreamt that my mother had given birth to two twins (girl and a boy). They were much smaller than normal babies, with hugely disproportionate heads. Nevertheless they would walk around and my mother kept telling me they were three. I was with them on my own by the seaside and they were playing a sort of game that involved slides and challenging other even smaller children. These children were normally proportioned ad clothed but really tiny like borrowers. The twins were not clothed. The boy grabbed the neck of the girl and held her under water laughing like it was a game. I tried to stop him drowning his sister, he was much stronger than me. Eventually I managed to rescue her and tried to tell my mother that he was evil and would kill her. She didnt seem too worried and soon she had loads of children and i was passing out massive bottles of milk to these relatively old siblings. We needed to meet someone, but im not sure who as I was so distracted tending in the tens of children that my mother was so unworried about. Back at the seaside the twins were joined in the water by these older siblings and I became worried again they these children would drown and remembered the twins who that i could no longer see. I tried searching the water. I pulled out a tiny bugs that I thought might be girl, then my perspective changed and I was looking down on a small pool of rain water. I think I got a bit annoyed here as my brain tried tied to make a shrivelled centipede into a stead one of them was riding in the water and I decided to wake up

I had a dream that I was driving down a road that I drive down often and I was in the truck with my husband and son and we drove into a ditch. I was trying to find ways to get out and save my family and I got out and they drowned. Then I cam back to where they drowned and it was the next day and I jumped back in the ditch and tried to save them, but I couldn't find them. Now I am afraid of ditches when I drive down the road. What does this mean??

In my dream I was in the swimming pool with my 2 year old sister. She tried swimming and doesnt know how so she went under, I was right beside her and couldn't reach my arms out to grab her. It was a horrible dream, I watched her drown and my arms and legs couldn't move.

I keep having daydreams/images that I am driving over a bridge on my way home from work with my 2 yr old in my backseat in her car seat. Some how we end up going over the side and I can get in the back of my intrepid to try to get her out and I can't. The next image is of her lifeless body there in her car seat and I can't save her.
This is killing me inside. I arrive at work with tears in my eyes because I only have the images when she is in the car with me. I really wish I could understand why I am having these images all of a sudden.

I had a dream my baby boy was drowning in a frozen lake. I jumped in to save him, my armed where instantly froze. I couldn't reach for him. He was slowly going down I was right behind him, I just could reach or move my arms till I couldn't see him in the deep water. Dreams don't normally bother me. But this one does. I can't stop thinking about it or picturing it. It scares me tremendously.What does this mean? What do I do with it?

In my dream I was at a pond with my boyfriend, we were walking to go fishing and holding hands. When we stopped to fish some friends of mine were there. Then all of a sudden i fell into the pond and I just saw their faces, all of a sudden I was underwater and I couldn't get back to the surface no matter how much I fought.. What does this dream possibly mean?

I dreamed last night that my current husband and I were near this canal and saw some abandoned cut-worm bait we wanted to use for fishing. We couldn't quite reach the container over the rail and the security guard who was on some type of manual dolly rode toward us and was going to assist in getting the bait. The security guard was my first husband, who passed away from a seizure many years ago. He couldn't quite reach the container either, so jumped in the water to swim toward it with all his clothes on. Once he jumped in, he didn't come back up and I could see him struggling. I wasn't sure if he was having a seizure or was trapped by something at the bottom. As he was struggling, his eyes and face began to hollow, as it would in the grave. I jumped in and tried to pull him up, but couldn't. Then I woke up. What does this mean?

The dream I had was me standing in a river trying to pull up something from the bottom. I kept going under and pulling on something. when I finally got it loose and pulled it to the surface it was just a rug, covered in mud and was very heavy. It kept going under water and pulling me with.

I dreamed that my sister and I was on a beach with a bunch of kids that we didn't know. When I walked to get my feet wet I noticed that you would have to step over this cement wall it wasn't big but you had to and that made me nervous. We'll I seen my sister walk up to it and she steps right over it and gets into the water when I know that she can't swim and I was standing there screaming trying to get her help but I felt in my heart that she was gone. I woke up scared not knowing that this was a dreaming but also I felt bad cause I figured that I should have jumped in the water also but I knew I couldn't swim very......So I wanted to know what did this dream actually meant.

I had a dream where i was at the beach in our town on a really hot day, which is when the beach is at its busiest. Anyways, there was a girl i am friends with and a boy i havent seen in AGES, sitting talking on a bench next to the sea. The boy was called Tony, and he suddenly got up and walked to the sea, where were there were many little kids playing, and a whirlpool somehow formed. I just watched as Tony began to turn round and round and disappear eventually. This has worried me so much. Don't even know how, but its one of the longest dreams i can remember! What does it mean?!

Last night I had a dream that I was drowning in a pool. There was people everywhere both in the pool & outside of it, but no one would help me. I could see my dad somewhere outside of the pool talking to someone but once I started drowning he disappeared. Although he was gone I kept trying to get his attention so he could get me out of the pool. Once I hit the bottom of the water I felt like something was holding me down but I kept thinking I can swim but I couldn't in my dream. Eventually I got out of the water but I was still drowning & no one noticed.

My 3 yr old son actually had this dream.... He drempt that we (his mom) were driving in my car, we almost crashed and went into the water. The car started filling up with water and the doors were locked so we couldn't get out. He said he tried talking to me but I wouldn't talk back cuz I had my hand over my mouth to hold my breath. He was stuck in his car seat and couldn't get out. And no one came to save us.
Then he woke up from his dream. Can anyone help me with y a 3 yr old would dream something so terrible? He tells me about it all the time, and I can just see the sadness and fear in his eyes. What do i do?

I had a dream that my son was messing around like always. But in his fun of jump off the table he hit his headand fell down a well pipe full of water. He fell feet first with his head held looking up to the sky mouth open. He was lifeless . I then grabbed the only thing I could his inside of his mouth and bottom jaw to pull him out of this pipe where he was trapped and drowned . His body was lifeless not breathing . I laid him down and started smacking his face. I then turned his head and the water came out and he started to breath again . This dream was not a pleasante dream . He is only six and and as a parent this was traumatizing . What does thins dream mean?

I took a nap earlier watching a movie about 4ish feel asleep actually. And while I was asleep I dreamed I was drowning and someone was watching me has I kept drowning I didn't die. And they kept watching me and didn't do anything just stared. It kinda freaks me out bc the person watching me was a man. But not sure who.

Last night I dreamed that my husband, my 7 month old daughter, and I were swimming somewhere...idk if it was a pool or lake or something...but all of a sudden all 3 of us were under water and I was swimming so hard to get to the top because neither I nor my child could breathe, and the water wouldn't let me. It was like I was staying stationary. Finally my husband grabbed my hand and slowly pulled me and my daughter up and before I got to the top, I raised my daughter out of the water so she could breathe....then I woke up.
I am extremely confused. What does this mean??

I dremt that i had come home to a friend sleeping on my bed and when i went looking for my son, he was nowhere to be found but i quickly thought to look in the back yard where the inground pool is. There is only one way he could get out & that's the doggy door in the bathroom that leads too the pool. When i got outside my 14 month old son was dead faced down at the bottom of the pool. Scared me to death when i woke up what does this mean?!?

I had a dream that my husband and I were playing with the four grandchildren at a local dam. We were on the overflow levy. I looked up and the were releasing. The water. My husband and I were frantically trying to get the children. The next thing I know my granddaughter is being. Carried away by the water. I jump in. The next. Thing she is running to me saying. Grandma. You found me. I say of course. I did and I'm holding her. Then I say come on we have to go find the boys. And she tells me but grandma we live with Jesus now. And I realized that we were both dead. I have dreams like this all the time. I wish I could shut it off.
