Scary Dreams

Recommended Posts

I dont think it really has to do with celiac, but.

About twice a week I get the same dream. I'm home alone(im 14) and then a car pulls into the driveway. I get really scared and try to find away out. They are parked in the driveway and some guy starts coming out, i think there is more than one guy actually. I find a way out the back and go running to my neighbors house. But the only way to get there is running infront of our house so I end up running past the driveway, but i can barely run(you know how in a scary dream you cant move, or move REALLY slow) It really scares me because there are some days when i am home alone, and now i get freaked out and just wait by the window and at every car i hear go by i think they are stopping.

I dream it so often it gets really irritating. I think it may be anxiety. I am really scared of people trying to kill me. When I ride my bike or walk our dogs down our rode, if a car slows down I think they are pulling out a gun, but if i dont hear them slow down I think they are going to purposely run me over.

Does anyone know what these dreams are about or how i can stop them. Maybe it is some gluten thing because when i read about dreams on here people say that they get nightmares when they get glutened. I dont think i get glutened twice a week though.

Well, unless you are given to having premonitions, I suppose it could be due to nutrient deficiencies. The B vitamins are especially important for neurological health, so you might find it helpful to take some every day. Various neurological problems have been linked to Celiac, and so have B vitamin deficiencies, so it is very important to make sure you're getting adequate nutrition. Vitamin B12 is often deficient in those with Celiac, and I find it does help both my sleep patterns and dreams. I always recommend a methylcobalamin sublingual tablet, such as the one from Source Naturals.

Also, I found that with practice, there are telltale signs in dreams, that you can use to discern them from reality. After a while, you can readily tell the difference, and once you know that you're dreaming, the fear goes away. Lucid dreaming can be quite a lot of fun too. There are a number of books on the subject.

Some foods can make your dreams weird too. Here's an article which might interest you: http://www.dairyreporter.com/Industry-markets/Cheese-unlocks-your-wildest-dreams-says-study

I do sometimes notice that i am dreaming though i cant get myself to wake up which is really annoying, but is kinda reassuring beccause i dont get as scared.

B12 could be something, i am dairy free vegetarian, and even though i have things with nutritional yeast(lots of b12) 1-2 times a week, i probably still am deficient. thanks;)

It can take some practice to become lucid within a dream, or wake yourself up any time you want. But it can be achieved. I found it helpful to focus on certain kinds of things, such as printed letters, numbers and words in the dream. If the letters are all jumbled up and illegible, you'll know you're asleep. This is according to sleep experts, who say that the part of the brain responsible for interpreting words isn't working while we sleep (however, in practice I found otherwise, but this may be an indicator of a true lucid dream). I also found it interesting to look at my clock if I think I'm dreaming - it's always way cooler looking than in reality, which is a tipoff that I'm dreaming. You may be able to hear yourself breathing while you're asleep too.

But in general, just tell yourself each night, to remember to take a good look around in the dream, and take note of things which are out of place, unrealistic, impossible, etc. Eventually you can gain enough control over the dream to redirect things, or to wake up if you want.

BTW, the last time I checked, the B12 in so-called "nutritional yeast" (not much more than Mono-Sodium Glutamate if you ask me) was added, because there really isn't much naturally occurring B12 in yeast. So you'd actually be better off with a supplement anyway. Additionally, MSG is a neurotoxin, which I suppose could have a negative effect on dreams. Same for aspartame (recently renamed "aminosweet", presumably to try to trick us). See the Truth In Labeling website for more.

I didnt know that about the yeast! And i have been very anti-msg, anti-aspartame,sucralose,etc. But i also hadnt heard about aminosweet(not that i've had anything with it) but i have heard of the newer one called neotame.

Thanks for your help. I guess I will try and be more aware when I dream:)
