I was periodically disturbed by dreams in which there was a thunderstorm, lightning. Once even ball lightning dreamed - a terrible picture that inspired great fear. Upon waking up, I felt how fast my heartbeat was. It took a few minutes to realize that this was just a dream. Realizing this, it became easier for me, I understood that everything was all right with me and I was not crippled.

For me, a nightmare is the one that is accompanied by sleep paralysis: I see something unpleasant and cannot move for a long time, turn away from it in a dream, while something squeezes my chest and an incredible fear appears, you cannot scream. Yes, even if it's not a nightmare, but sleep paralysis occurs - it's still unpleasant. I only had it three or four times. The very first was about 7-8 years ago after the death of my grandfather, on the night after his funeral: he got up in my sleep from the coffin, and I could not turn away and move. Another similar dream was 2 years ago after the death of my grandmother and also on the night after the funeral: I dreamed of her image, at the same time it seemed to me that I was lying in my room not sleeping and someone knocked on the door, entered the room, and again I I could not move, after which I woke up abruptly and realized that everything that had happened was a dream. But after such dreams, I turned on the light and slept with it.
Now sleep paralysis is rare, after stressful situations, and already such vivid stories are not accompanied.

Psychologically, I am influenced by dreams where close relatives die, I am very worried all day after. And the worst dream, after all, is when in a dream you feel the fear of your own death, the realization that soon everything that is next to you (relatives, friends and the whole world) simply will not be seen.

Personally, I have dreams tend to be forgotten, only the fact itself can be remembered, but I no longer remember the description. Maybe it's for the best.
