Dreams are annoyingFollow

I don't dream (or at least, remember them upon waking) very often. The past couple weeks have been filled with dreams in which I'm driving, but doing obviously reckless things. Like pulling out in front of people and then I find myself not being able to control my dream self. Like an out of body experience within the dream. I'm driving, yet I'm not controlling myself driving. Most of them involve dangerous conditions like heavy rain, snow, or ice. Or quick runs during breaks at work, and then deciding to go further than decided, becoming late for returning to work. Always unable to control myself, like I wasn't actually the one driving yet was.

The last string of repeated dreams I had involved my teeth. They would become very loose and I would fear that they were falling out.

Crazy dreams. I wouldn't call them nightmares, yet every time I have them I wake up in a small panic.

I have them all the time, almost nightly. They are the only ones I slightly remember.
I get a driving one here and there as well. In it my brakes never work right, so I never come to a complete stop at stop signs, or basically anything. It always ends in a hit in run. Scary right?
When I was younger I use to wake up screaming due to 2 dreams. Both had a staircase and I was at the bottom, and either Bouncing Balls or Shoes would tumble on me to no end. Why did I wake up screaming? We will never know.

Do you ever wake up not where you went to bed? That "moment" can really get you.

Tirrith, they sound unpleasant enough that I'm not surprised you wake up in a small panic. Enough to call them nightmares. to keep a long muse short, you may later have a series of dreams where your car goes out of control, but you get control back, you get back in your body, the drive finishes well. When you have these later dreams (hopefully!) your subconscious will be bedding down a better, more in control situation that you find your life in... or it has simply reconciled itself to driving a dangerous machine (a car!) ^-^

Most people who try to interpret dreams say that dreams about your teeth falling out are your subconscious way of saying you are worried about your appearance.

I had heard that too. But at the time I wasn't one to care about my appearance. I think mine was actually just a dream about my teeth falling out. Because for a while after I had my wisdom teeth remove my teeth really did feel loose (relatively, but still made them feel weird and I constantly would push on them with my tongue testing them). After a while the sensation went away, but later the dreams happened. I haven't had those dreams in quite some time, but it was multiple dreams over a short period of time.

I had a teeth dream when I had an infection underneath my baby tooth last month. Pain pills and antibiotics got rid of the infection and it stayed at one dream.

Baby tooth? As an adult? o.O

When I was a kid, I used to dream that I would wake up in the back of a moving car, only to find that no one was driving and I had to control the car. This was before I learned to drive, so I had no idea what I was supposed to do. Then I would look in the rear view mirror, and there would be a tornado behind me. Fun.

I have the "My teeth are falling out" dream a lot. I've also had dreams where my contacts were ginormous, like, the size of my entire eyeball and I had to somehow put them in or I'd be really late for work.

I have the driving from the backseat dream all the time(probably every few months for the ones I remember). No tornado, though.

The baby tooth seems to be genetic, my aunt had one till she was 45 or so. My cook in Karachi had his till he was 22 and then broke it when he used it as a bottle opener.

As for recurring dreams, I have a nightmare every few years that I don't have health insurance. That's about it.

I had a similar spell about the time I got a couple of teeth pulled. Haven't had those for a while, but I remember having a lot leading up to, and for a while afterwards.

The "I can't find something I desperately need to find and now I can't get my pants on and can't find the keys to my car and why can't I type the number into my phone to call and let people know I'm late because now I'm late and only getting later because nothing seems to be working properly" dreams are the worst.

That's one of the things that wakes me up in a cold sweat and shivering, except leg instead of arm. I've managed to solve it slightly by sleeping less.

I went from remembering one or two dreams a month all of my life to, during my senior year of HS, just suddenly having multiple, vivid, memorable dreams nearly every night for seemingly no reason. One thing I definitely noticed: the more dreams I remembered the following morning, after sorting out how many completely unrelated things got meshed together in the dream soup that is normal, was that the less dreams I could remember, the more rested I felt. the few mornings I woke up with no memory of dreaming lead to the few times in my life I've had any idea what being a "Morning Person" could feel like Smiley: lol

I don't remember dreams quite as much as I did then, it seems to have cooled off, but I still pull four or five memorable dreams a weak, and even more that I remember until I've had caffeine. That said, I've also given up on trying to analyze my dreams, because they're all weird as sh*t and the only easily discernible things from them are that I find my life to be incredible dull and prefer to escape into fantasy, that I really, really, really want a do-over of my childhood, and that I've got a seriously overactive imagination; but those are all things I'm perfectly well aware of and didn't need my dreams to tell me in the first place Smiley: laugh. That said, I still haven't figured out the trick to lucid dreaming, which is probably a good thing.

Except if it were baby photos, it would be like looking at before and afters of Michael Jackson. Only instead of turning into a white guy, he changes into a chick!

Dreams of reckless driving just means you are going to die in bed at the age of 98.
