This is my first post. Anyone with similar experiences/problems please comment!
Starting very young, I had horrible nightmares. I would wake up in a sweat, paralyzed, with a bitter taste of iron in my mouth, but I could never remember what the dreams were about.
These continued every night, when I slept. Surprisingly, though I felt VERY tired, I never suffered in school or was affected bodily by the dreams.
Over the years, I started to remember more of my dreams, and I slowly realized that all of them contained death or near-death experiences. Car crashes, plane wrecks, suicides, etc.
One night, I awoke from my sleep with the image of a girl from my school in my mind with slow falling pieces of glass around her.
The next day in school it was announced that she had died in a car crash.
Since then, I have started to have flashes of "visions", as I call them, in the day. Almost like my day dreams have been overridden with death now too. I know long ones are coming on when a dull pounding headache starts, but sometimes if I touch something, a vision comes suddenly. And sometimes, if I touch someone, a vision will come on.
I see flashes of things I don't understand; like a key, ring, or a face. And the iron taste returns.
The last two years, I have been able to somewhat control the length of the visions, and very rarely, I can zero in on who my visions are about.
I hate going into hospitals, graveyards, anywhere where there is death. Even ordinary places aren't 100% safe. One time, I walked into a Walmart and almost fell at the vision that attacked my mind of a girl and a pool of blood.
This is just a part of the weird occurrences that take place in my life, that I accept because, for whatever reason, the Maker wanted me to have this.
I would just really like to talk to someone with the same dilemma, to hear their take. Thanks.
