Recurring dreams

Would love to hear some good ol' recurring dream/nightmare stories from y'all.

I haven't had it in a while but for a long time, I'd dream vividly about a little truck stop/town off the side of a freeway. I can still remember how the whole area was laid out. I used to hope I'd randomly drive by it on a road trip at some point. I feel like at some point I will, and I'll totally lose my shit if and when I do LOL.

It's possible that place you keep dreaming about is a part of your past life whether it be somewhere you lived or died. Do you remember anything significant about it?

Just the physical layout of it. You pull off of a highway/freeway offramp and to your right theres like a diner that had a mechanic/auto repair/tire yard situation in back, and a few small nondescript office type buildings past it. Then there’s an intersection with two gas stations on it and the road that intersects the main road goes off into the hills. Then the main road passes a few more small office type buildings before it merges back on to the freeway.


Stunning description i know

When I was little I had one all the time where I was in a really dark locked barn and within that barn were 3 houses.  Those houses belonged to the 3 little pigs, who were extremely scary, and were being chased by the big bad wolf.  The houses were the only places to hide and he was tearing them apart.  I remember being very scared and running around trying to figure out how to survive the terror pigs and the insane wolf.  I always woke up before any harm ever came to me.


Closer to my teens I had a dream almost monthly for years that I was hanging out in a living room and a drive by shooting happened and I died.

when i was younger i would have reoccurring dreams about running into the forest and falling down a hole that seemed to never end. it was dark, and damp. and being a kid it was horrifying. i could only see what was in front of me, behind me was void. it felt so real.


i'd say that if your having repetitive dreams, you should look in one of those onirology online books. you could be unconsciously trying to tell yourself something.

Oh gosh I have many-- the one that haunts me the most is one from my childhood of a porcelain doll killing me :/ 


Now the same dream usually doesn't reoccur, just certain elements of dreams reoccur frequently such as a certain house, or not being able to function!

So.. I don't really have the same dream over and over, but the theme is always the same.

I start off doing something, lord knows what bc dreams are weird, but then I get this feeling that people are after me to either try to hurt me/kill me.

And what do ya know, I was right! So I end up running away from them for the entirety of my dream. Though in one they got dangerously close to killing me before I woke up and ..hoo boy that wasn't fun.

Though I think my favorite nightmare I ever had was one where I was apparently a vampire? And I guess in this dream world if you overfed a vampire they would go berserk with power and stuff? But like-- I just remember physically losing control over my own body. It was like I was sitting inside watching myself just go nuts. Like.. I was throwing myself at walls and bashing my head into things and I was completely and utterly terrified that I was going to hurt someone in the midst of hurting myself. 

..wonder what it all means.

i have this quite strange recurring dream, had it about seven times over the span of about two months. 

it’s always different characters/people but it’s the same storyline. basically me and my family are being hunted down in our house if that makes sense. pretty gory

damn most of the replies on here are pretty grim!


I have a (kinda) recurring dream quite often where I am essentially in the same place but in different scenarios. It's a town with fields bordering it and a train line that runs all the way around- in some dreams there's also a river right in the center of the town next to a forest. Kinda weird the level of detail some dreams go into regarding this place :p

OK so mine is a bit... odd and off the wall xD there is a place near me called Black Bayou. This place is well known for where people will 'drop' bodies because there are a shit ton of gators.. Anyways, I'm on one of the big pier walkways that curves and goes out over the water a very good ways and the moment I step onto the beginning of the walk way I start floating upwards and I can fly around but when I have been in the air for a while I will start sinking slowly and it gets harder and harder to control my flight 9 times out of 10 I don't make it to the path way but I also never hit the water since I will wake up before I do.

I’ve had the same recurring dream for years but lately it’s been a lot more frequent. It’s always this same town next to a beach which I’ve never seen in real life before, it’s so vivid and in my dreams I sometimes think it’s California and sometimes think it’s Las Vegas. I always end up falling in the water towards the end of the dream and it’s really dark and cold.

Reoccuring dreams are the ones I often remember most. I'm walking in some sort of woods or a mall, and are either alone or surrounded by faceless people. I feel like I've either missed something, forgotten something, am going somewhere, or are supposed to know what is happening, but are confused. I usually wander the landscape haplessly until I either wake up or am thrust into a deeper sleep. Odd and capricious

I have had a recurring dream of a place--a city--I have long since called Slum.

The dreams are extremely detailed, much more so than my "normal" dreams; they are always horrific, always terrible; but there is a haunting beauty about the place all the same. Slum is in fact a giant city; I usually "get" a dream from there every few years or so.

They have had a major impact on my life, to the point that a few years ago I wrote about them and published them. If you're interested in reading them (and diving in my psyche), contact me and I'll shoot you a coupon code for a free download (mature audiences only, please). Wade in carefully; it's pretty nasty stuff.
