Do you just hate waking up from a Nightmare?

Asked by davidbetterman (7545points) February 17th, 2010

I mean one doesn’t know what to do. Should I go back to sleep if I can or get up and have a smoke? If i go back to sleep, will the nightmare resume where it l was when I awoke? What if I wake from the nightmare only to find that my waking is really just part of the dream and I cannot wake up?!?!?!

Go back to sleep, but don’t lose consciousness.
Remain lucid. Have fun with your dreams.

I once heard, and I am not sure of the science behind it, but if you rub your arms vigorously the dream will not come back. I have loads of nightmares and I do this and it works.

Sometimes I will get up and drink water, use the loo, and leave a soft light on in the lounge. It helps.
