Last night was like any other. Went to bed and started dreaming about FI and our kids in a house. People were there and it didnt seem right but in the dream FI said things were okay.
I fall asleep in the dream and wake up and call out for FI, he isnt answering and the kids are calling for him too. I get the kids and try to look for him, but this man is trying to stop us. I fight him off and get the kids out.
At this point Im thinking that the only reason FI isnt coming to help is that he is mortally wounded or dead. I start to panic. I run out with the kids and there are two people trying to take us. We escape them and I have no phone, have no idea where I am and the kids are scared. Im panicking. Then cars are coming toward us and its my mom.
Mom sees we are okay and Im asking if anyone knows about FI, mom tells me he is alive. I beg to see him and she said its probably not a good idea. I collapse on the ground and my heart feels like its gonna stop. I tell her that I have to see him that I have to be with him, without him I wont make it. She said, I have seen the greatest of loves ripped apart and you will always survive.
Then the dream was over. I woke up choking for air, crying. Woke FI when I let out a scream and he held me the rest of the night. Even as I type this I am crying and my heart is racing. I never ever want to lose him.
So thats my first nightmare about FI.
Sorry for it being so long.

I’ve had one dream like that. I was sleeping alone that night to begin with so waking up from that to being alone terrified me. I didn’t sleep the rest of the night.
Hugs. It happens to the best of us.

I was having a lot of break up dreams about my SO right before we got engaged… I think dreams like mean that things are changing or something.

I’ve had a similar one. FI and I were staying in a hotel room in Vancouver and we went to sleep around 1 AM. In my dream, I woke up in our exact same hotel room and looked at the clock and it was 4 AM but FI wasn’t beside me. The phone rang and it was the Vancouver police calling, saying that he had died around 3 AM. I was sobbing uncontrollably and wandering around our (again, exactly the same) hotel room for what felt like hours. I have never been so happy as when I woke up and he was in bed next to me.
It was just so scary because it was so real. I can usually tell when I’m dreaming because things are too weird to be real, but this all matched up. I was in the same room, the timing matched up with when we went to bed. This happened months ago and I still remember every vivid detail.

Oh honey, that’s awful! I know how real it seemed, but it’s just a dream and nothing bad is going to happen, I promise….I’m a rather lucid dreamer myself and will most likely never hear the end of an intruder in the house nightmare I had last Christmas Eve, where I walked down the kitchen in my sleep, in my dream I was wrestling with an intruder, in reality I was wrestling with Mr. 99 and even managed to give him a respectable shiner in the process!
He was so embarassed to go to my parent’s for dinner the next day, but my family is all too familiar with my nocturnal antics….my father regailed him with a tale of all the Dad’s on the block chasing me down the street one night as I fled some awful dream in my sleep.
You focus on good things, make a pumpkin pie and give him a big hug, it’s ok!

Thanks bees. I feel better. I usually know when Im dreaming. Most of the time they make no sense. FI doesnt dream at all so he doesnt understand that it can seem so real. This was so real I remember the eye color of the attackers. I remember what the woman was wearing and I can tell you everything in detail. It was so vivid. I was recounting the whole dream to FI and he said when I dream it sounds like movie with a beginning, a middle and an end.

I dreamt once that SO was killed and I was in his room at his parents house going through his closet and taking things that were significant to me. Normally my dreams take place in a made up surrounding but this time it felt so real. I woke up sobbing and it took SO about 20 minutes to calm me down.
These dreams are terrifying but hopefully it wont become reoccuring.

FI is military and we have been through several deployments and never in all this time have I ever had a nightmare about him dying. He went to Iraq and I was good, he went to afghanistan and I was good. Not a single nightmare.
He is laying beside me in bed and I have the mother of all nightmares.
