Ive, since the time I was young, have been conscious in my dreams so that I could tell it was only a dream. Not until about for years ago did I start noticing that the dreams that seemed much more real were dreams that were actually occurring in real life. At first it really threw me off. I had a dream about me getting into a car accident and then climbing out of my car. As I climbed out of my car in the dream I read the billboard that my vehicle had stopped on. One week later I took a road I had never traveled on to see a old friend in the next town over. It was raining pretty heavy and I hydroplaned. As my truck came to a stop I realized that my truck was sideways. As I climbed out of the vehicle I realized I had stopped on the very same billboard from my dream.
After this happened it would occur more and more in my life. It got to the point that it really even through off my daily life. I could tell a big difference in a normal dream and a dream that seemed to have forbearance. I tried to tell my friends about it one time, but they just laughed it off and told me not to worry so much. The thing is I'm the one that most times was laid back and tell everyone else not to worry all the time.
As I notice a dream occurring it has the same feel as deja vu and at times it can just be overwhelming. The main reason it seems like too much is because it seems as though I mainly have dreams about tragic occurrences. I have no idea why this is, but it takes its toll and it's becoming a bit much to deal with. Its really been about 4 years since this started and it really seems like its only getting stronger. At this point I wouldn't mind advice on any level.
