I have this disturbing dream or should I call it nightmare.
I was on our house and our whole family was eating, I haven't eaten much because I'm not feeling well and decided to go to bed. After a few minutes after I go to bed, I felt that someone poked me on my leg from the wall side. I got up and look around and saw no one. After that I was suddenly attacked by something from the other side. I was trying to make a noise while defending myself from my unseen attacker, didn't know why but I can't scream. During this time I feel like I was in the middle, my conscious mind and my unconscious mind. I only wake up because of my dog, who was barking while I was being attacked in the dream. Mysteriously he stops a few seconds after I wake up, he usually doesn't stops barking until someone looks outside the house.
The room on my dream was not like what it really looks like outside the dream, but it feels the same. Can't really explain.
I usually and immediately wake up from a bad dream before something bad happens to me in that dream. This was the second time it happened though, the first one was also on the room but the last time I saw my attacker (a guy wearing a black cloak) but someone was protecting me (a girl in white with gem like eyes). But she was defeated and the guy attacked me, I couldn't scream because he was choking me and I also couldn't move my body to make any noise. I only wake up when my sister walks in and opened the light. This happened a few months ago
Just wondering why do we have nightmares? Would also appreciate if anyone can also tell me about the dream. Thanks
