After marriage nightmares

A lot of ladies have nightmares before the wedding- it could be about your dress, the venue or the marriage not even taking place... but have any of you had nightmares after being married?


For example, I am happily married- couldn't be better BUT I have these dreams (I'll call them nightmares) about me being with ex boyfriends.... I am with them and VERY happy for a brief moment, then they will either say or do something that will remind me why I can't stand them and THEN I will become depressed because ALL I can think about is my DH and how I really truly want to be with him.


 


I wake up in relief knowing it was all a dream but then I feel guilty for dreaming about exes...I know I can't control those dreams but I can't help it.


I am actually going to see my shrink in a few weeks and discuss this with him- what do you all think it is? Have any of you experienced this?

Right after DH and I got married, I had a lot of dreams like these. Many of ended with me not being able to be with DH. Now, almost two years later I don't get them very much anymore. I'm not really sure what caused them, but I'm really glad they went away. I hated the icky feelings they gave me.

I have a problem with being conscious that I'm dreaming while I am dreaming... Which is really frustrating with these kinds of dreams, because they all turn into seeking dreams. I know it isn't right, and I know I'm with dh... But where in the heck is the bugger?! Yup... Have them occasionally now, more so when we got married or when I'm stressed.
