Oneirophobia: The Fear of Dreams

Oneirophobia is the irrational fear of dreams. Sometimes dreams feel so real and if they cause you to feel extreme anxiety more times than night then it gets to the point where you are afraid to dream. This phobia is closely related to Clinophobia, which is the fear of going to bed or falling asleep.

Medication caused me to have extreme night terrors and there were many nights that I didn’t want to go to sleep. It was absolute hell. I can’t imagine living with this on a nightly basis. You’re so tired, but terrified of going to sleep. My heart goes out to everyone who suffers with this phobia.
