Do you ever have bad dreams and you're so relieved when you wake up?

A few times, I've had some dreams like I was sentenced to 40 years in prison for some minor crime like killing hookers then I wake up in my bed and quiet room and feel a flood of relief.

Last night, I had a dream that I fell into a cave and there were only two slats with the sun shining through and I was about to panic then I woke up in relief.

Anyone have any similar dreams and relief when you wake up?

All the time. Mine vanish quickly, its amazing how that works. Sometimes I wake up vividly remembering dreams like they were real for about an hour, and then they just kind of disappear. Really remarkable how many times I've felt that exact sensation of realizing it thankfully was just a dream, which in itself does last, but to completely forget what even happened in the dream by mid day.

I've had this roughly same dream every couple of months since 2013. I'm drunk with a group of friends that includes friends of mine who have never met each other or have any connection and we're hanging at some new place I've never been before including in the other dreams. Someone else shows up with a big ass bag of fish scale cocaine. I get so excited when I see it in the bag, but something distracting always happens and I never get to try the cocaine. Used to be pissed I didn't get to try the coke. Now I'm relieved I wasn't really drunk.

That kinda reminds me of a dream I've probably had 50 times over the years.

I'm in some emergency situation and try to call 911 but keep dialing the wrong numbers.

919 then 991 then 119 then 999...

It never works.

My oldest has always had anxiety and it has been really scary at times. I remember when he was in his teens I woke up to the sound of a gunshot. Like jolted out of bed and was terrified to check on him. I had one other dream where he’d harmed himself during a particularly challenging time. I woke up screaming and scared the hell out of my husband. There was zero chance of sleeping again that night. After those dreams nothing else could touch them for fear or awfulness.
