I'm not usually afraid of bad dreams aka nightmares.
For me dreams are just fragments of my imaginations or as I like to call it 'unfinished business' (what's left out) during my waking hours.
But if the dreams involved the things I hate the most, say, a snake, yikes!
I wouldn't call it a nightmare but I also dunno what to call it.
I don't like dreaming about snakes. In this particular dream, the snake is even in pink!
PINK? Gosh! My dream definitly a feminine dream.. LOL!
