I dont really wish to go into details on this dream. Just wanting to know if anyone has not woken from a nightmare, and found that it had progressed into a dream. I would give example, but its triggery and not all that important. Think the simplest way I can describe it is a past experience (slightly different, but involving the same people) that then progresses into a normal living life with those people like a family, and even dreaming of knitting, cooking, tidying etc (all household chores) for them with them, as if they were part of my family. I usually wake from a nightmare, and never had it go the way I am trying to describe, so its really unsettling me. Just seems like my head is trying to justify what they did by putting them into my "family"
