The text of most recent dream reports from participants in the Demographic Survey 2010 and other sources. The exact question for the Demographic Survey 2010: Please describe your most recent dream, either from last night or within the last week, in as much detail as possible. The response is limited to 3000 characters. Unfortunately, I do not remember the last dream I had. It's been a few weeks. But I can say that when I did not dream (or was not cognizant of dreaming) for months (I was on Celexa at the time, and attribute my lack of dreams to that drug) that I felt a real emptiness and lacking, an unsettledness because I was not working through issues in my dreams.
A follow-up question for participants in the Demographic Survey 2010 who answered the question about most recent dreams: Is it a recurrent dream? No
The text of earliest remembered dream reports from participants in the Demographic Survey 2010 and other sources. Exact question: Please describe the first dream you remember from childhood in as much detail as you can. Response is limited to 3000 characters. I remember this one because I thought it was real until my parents told me otherwise. We lived on a ranch, with a front and back screen door (house built more for cross breezes than for security.) I dreamt that a wolf came up (I live in South Texas; we do not have wolves here, but this was definitely a wolf, not a coyote) and that I killed it in the yard (I was maybe 4 at the time) and I can quite clearly picture the dead wolf on the front porch, where we (for some unknown reason) had dragged it after I killed it in the yard. This dream was odd for so many reasons: I had never actually seen a wolf in the flesh/fur, they are not native to here, and it seems rather preposterous for a 4 year old to kill a wolf. Perhaps my parents had read Little Red Riding Hood to me that night?

The text of worst nightmare reports from participants in the Demographic Survey 2010 and other sources. Exact question: Please describe the worst nightmare you can remember, from any period of your life, in as much detail as you can. Response is limited to 3000 characters. Unfortunately, I don't remember many dreams. I'm often aware that I dreamt, and remember a few things, but don't recall the whole thing and forget it after a day or two. But I do remember dreaming that I was playing baseball, and that as I ran for home, the catcher jumped on me and stabbed me. (I was maybe 10 at the time; he was a classmate of mine). I also remember being surrounded by other kids, like we were playing dodgeball, but instead they had knives and were stabbing me. I also have had dissociative states where I felt I was being kicked and beaten, but I was not asleep at the time, so they aren't really dreams. And though this is not really a nightmare, I remember a dream when I was around 18 or 20, maybe a bit older. I was taking a nap at my parents' house, in the end room of a ranch house where a door led to the outside. I dreamt that my brother, who died when I was 16 (he was almost 12) was on the other side of the screen door, banging on it and begging to be let in, while I was standing inside and wouldn't let him in. He was so close, just on the other side of the door, I could almost touch him......I woke to find my dad banging on the screen door, as it was latched and he could not get in. The dream was very unsettling, because my brother had seemed so real, he was less than a foot away, but I was teasing him, and I wanted so badly for him to come back.....
