Created an account just to answer this. As stated earlier, looked up this topic since it was happening to me and wanted to add my input.
You dream every night; it's the fact whether or not you remember them when you are fully conscious is the issue at hand.
You remember dreams when you wake up in the middle of one (Aka during REM).
Last night I had maybe 7 different dreams that I remember... and guess how many times I woke up last night? At least 5. The quality of sleep I have
been getting the past week was very poor. I get 9 hours of sleep, but with the constant disturbances, that number doesn't make it any good.
STRESS is a big factor here. I have been enduring a lot of emotional worries lately leading to a very mild depressive episode which I contribute to my
constant waking and dreaming. When your brain is so filled with all this necessary worry, it is easy to have many disturbing dreams. Also, I
contribute some of my disturbances in the early morning to very vivid dreams. They cause me to wake up. I don't know if they're scary enough to be
classified as "nightmares", but it's something I've noticed.
I looked up this topic because it is causing issues in my daily life not getting good quality sleep, but also as a psychology major, dreams are really
cool to analyze.
