An anxiety dream is an unpleasant dream that is less disturbing than a nightmare. Anxiety dreams are characterized by the feelings of unease, distress, or apprehension in the dreamer upon waking. Anxiety dreams occur in “rapid eye movement sleep”, and common dreams involve incomplete tasks, embarrassment, falling, or pursuit. Anxiety dreams may be caused by childhood trauma, an adult dealing with conflict, or an overload of stress. Though they create anxiety in the dreamer, anxiety dreams also serve as a way for a person's ego to re-set.
The article “Are Your Kids Little Addicts?” by Kim Painter, brings up many reasons why prescribing medications to help children sleep is not a hard-hitting issue, while the author of “Doctors Ponder Drugs for Sleepless Nights of Adolescence,” Mary Duenwald claims there are safe sleeping aids for children that have not caused any significant side effects in the child’s life. While both articles discuss the problems with children being prescribed sleep aids, Painter believes these drugs are no more dangerous for children than any other medication, while Duenwald shows more sensitivity on the topic of sleep aids for children. Duenwald claims children should never take sleeping medication. She acknowledges the fact that no sleeping medications are approved by the FDA for children due to the fact, little research has been done on the matter. Shes explains that, during the teenage years, the internal clock shifts which causes late and restless nights.
THE OUT-OF-BODY EXPERIENCE SUMMARY Out of body experience is “a feeling of departing from one’s physical body and observing both one’s self and the world from outside one’s body” (OBE). People suggested that it is like dreaming but more realistic and that is unlike anything they had experienced inside of their bodies. Also out of the body experience can be compare to sleep paralysis or lucid dreaming. For example, sleep paralysis can be considered a feeling of not being able to move when you are asleep or just waking up with signs of frightening hallucinations which can last to couple of minutes of couple of seconds. The controversy with sleep paralysis is that many people suggest that it is a medical condition, but others believe is supernatural because they feel a demon choking the victim or sitting on the victim’s chest (Archetypal Mind).
Other symptoms can include hallucinations and sleep paralysis - both experienced either when falling asleep or when waking up, and frequent waking up when asleep at night. There have been three explanations put forward for the explaining narcolepsy, in the 1960s it was considered that it occurred as a result of a malfunction in the systems which maintain REM sleep, Vogel (1960) found that REM sleep occurred at the onset of sleep in narcoleptics. This explained some of the symptoms of the disorder, such as the loss of muscle tone - found in REM sleep and the hallucinations - seen as REM-type sleep and dreams intruding into the day. A second explanation was in the 1980s research suggested that it was linked to a mutation of the immune system. Honda et al (1983) found an increased frequency of one type of human leukocyte antigen (HLA) in patients.

According to Freud’s theory, dreams are distinguished in two types, either manifest content or latent content. Manifest content distinguishes dreams that are conscious and usually remembered when awaken. Latent content distinguishes dreams that are expressed as images or symbols, which is dependent on the unconscious thoughts or ones desire. Dreams could be distinguished as conscious and unconscious thoughts and desires. Dreams can also be persuaded in a scientific way.
Alcohol and Sleep Many insomniacs take a drink of whiskey or wine before bedtime in order to reduce sleep latency. While alcohol does help people get to sleep faster, drinking has been shown to result in low quality of sleep as measured by nighttime awakenings (fragmented sleep) and decreased time spent in REM sleep. After a few drinks, especially in people who don’t drink much, individuals often report subjectively shallow sleep and frequent mid-night awakenings. The effects vary greatly; some people experience sweating (a monkeywrench in the body’s sleep thermoregulation process) and vivid dreams (a characteristic of abrupt transition between stages). Indeed, drinking lowers your body’s core temperature slightly, followed by a rise.
The article also addresses the result of consistent failures in ego control. Ultimately, it was suggested that individuals with SUDs would reveal such failures across a wide range of behaviors and could be measured on a variety of psychological and behavioral tasks (Gottdiener, Murawski, & Kucharski, 2008). Freud states that people who experience painful events didn’t necessarily forget the traumatic event but repressed it into their unconscious meaning that Freud thought that the unconscious was both a cause and effect of repression. He proposed that the unconscious is divided into 3
