About a year or so ago, I could remember my dreams fairly accurately. Be it a nightmare, a normal unrealistic dream, or a meaningless dream, I could usually recall it the next day and tell it to my friends and such. But in the past year or so, I haven't been able to do that.
Sometimes, I wake up from a nightmare (that much I remember, because I remember being scared when I woke up), and try to recall exactly what it was I'd dreamt of, but the more I thought about it, the more I couldn't remember, until the memory was gone, and no matter how hard I tried, I couldn't remember it. It's like trying to keep water in your hands. I get really frustrated sometimes, because I really want to remember my dreams.
One nightmare that I seem to have had more than once is one I can't recall correctly, but I do remember one thing - falling. It was more of a feeling than an image. I remember that feeling of falling. It's the same feeling you get when you're on those rides at amusement parks that toss you up and down repeatedly. It literally feels like your heart has been pulled out.
I remember one incident when the dream was so real, I woke up crying, and my parents rushed into my room asking me what was wrong, because according to them, I'd screamed really loudly. My body was drenched in cold sweat - it wasn't hot at all, but I was sweating profusely. I was really scared at the time. It just felt so real..
