For the past couple months I've been getting a lot of violent dreams. Dreams that are of a very graphic and horrid nature. The dreams also seem to exaggerate the inflicted damage instead of exaggerate the actions. I have never had the same violent dream twice or more, they are all different. I can't remember most of the dreams I have and they are easily forgotton unless I speak of them to others or focus a lot of attention on them. One particular dream I remember I had the other night. A window washer was washing my windows on my car and for some reason I became enraged, I pulled out a lead pipe from my back seat and I proceed to hit the window washer in the head over and over again until there was nothing left. As I've said, the dreams seem to exaggerate the inflicted damage rather than exaggerate the actions, the actual "hitting" wasn't exaggerated, but the brain matter, gore, and blood was very exaggerated. In my dream it was flying everywhere, getting stuck on the tip of my pipe, getting all over the ground, chunks of his brain on the side of my car. I really don't know what is causing these. Sometimes I'll be doing whatever I'm doing... watching T.V, playing games, cleaning my aquarium, or working and I'll have a random thought of a gorish death. Completely random. I can't explain it. I don't think I'm "fascinated" with death, and I really don't see these as a threat to myself or others since I am pretty much in control of myself and I'm a pretty friendly person in general (Some of you will disagree, but this is the internet--it's different). I'm just wondering if any of you had experienced things like this, random thoughts, and violent dreams. I think what bothers me about them most is that they don't seem to have an effect on me. Like, if I walked by someone who was lying on the ground completely mutilated, I would walk past it as if it was "normal" or not anything out of the ordinary--that's just an example, you understand what I'm saying. This will probably make it to the main forum, but meh, do your best to keep it in here.
