From messing up drink orders to missing events to running from giant lobsters, it seems like people need to lay off the hot wings before bed.

Some people are chased by demonic animals…
Once I woke up from a nightmare where I was being chased down the hall by a demonic rhinoceros, and when I went back to sleep it just picked up where it left off. https://t.co/0RvirNNoQs

While others fall victim to the wrath of a self-driving car…

It seems like the most prominent factor in everyone’s recurring dreams is stress.
Recurring stress dream: I'm @ childhood home, huge backyard being roamed by large, dangerous animals (changes each dream), ppl & pets I love are in house but keep trying to leave, I have to keep them inside/safe/rescue them from yard. https://t.co/9DO2kgyK2U

We’ve all been thereâtrying to keep someone or something safe, being chased by an unseen entity, feeling as though we’re trapped and can’t escape. The best way to avoid nightmares is to reduce stress as much as possible. Other possible causes of bad dreams include sleep deprivation, changes in your sleep schedule, or various sleep disorders. Either way, nobody likes to wake up in the morning feeling scared and restless. At least we can take comfort in knowing that other people are having dreams that are just as unsettling.
