Well,I am just the opposite than you.
I sleep like a baby every night with no dreams or such.
The nightmare begins in the morning when I read the news and realize my country has been invaded and there is people running my country that in the old reality could not be elected dog catcher.
I believe the only way for every thing to get back on track is the same thing that has happened dozens of times in Earths history.
Just wipe it all snot clean and start all over.
I thought about that; if only I had control of my dreams. I will write it down on a notebook; maybe that could work. Thanks.

Incredibly rarely, but my ability to lucid dream helps.
I used to wake up from nightmares, now, I kick ass to any monsters and change bad things to create good outcomes at will.
Being out of the rat race helps and having peace of mind negates most negativity in my dreams. Took some knocks getting to where I am now, but practice, trust in myself and knowing that everything in dreams is of my own making helps.
Next time that big orange ball comes hurtling towards you, rather than think 2012 and doom and gloom, imagine you're on a beautiful sandy beach and the sun is beaming a big smile on you while you relax and watch the people running around and playing on the beach....."aaaah", here comes the waiter with your pina colada.
It's your dream, do it how you want, all you sometimes need is a trigger to realise that, maybe reading this will help.

I don't know why, but it's my favorite activity. I do wish there was an alternative as mentioned.

Sleep is that small death that steals half our lives.
Not a fan, and wish there was some alternative to sleeping.
I do limit the activity to the extreme.

I've been having nightmares each night since the beginning of October of this year. Earlier this year I had a bedbug infestation, which then led to insomnia. I wasn't always someone who slept early, but ever since the incident I ended up staying awake for 48 to 72 hours. My sleeping patterns soon altered, so instead of sleeping at night; I slept in the day time. In other words, I had become nocturnal; like an Owl. I began to feel paranoia, cold, weak and hallucination. The bedbugs were eventually taken care of, but the side effects were soon to start. Due to lack of sleep for a long period of time I might have possibly suffered from sleep deprivation. Sleep deprivation also leads to REM sleep, which are translated into nightmares. If I had to explain all of these nightmares in a post I would be an author. I will explain one nightmare that I think you might like to hear. It was related to 2012. I found myself standing stationary as I stare at a gigantic orange/red ball heading towards Earth while every human being is running and panicking, but before it hit I woke up. It wasn't long, but it did leave me thinking. Which brings me to my main question; how often do you have nightmares? I don't think it's normal to have them every night. I need an explanation if possible. Thank you.
Note: If you have a dream/nightmare you would like to share, please post it.
