Fucking insane dream weirdness

I don't mind weird dreams, I don't. In fact, I love them. What I *don't* love is weird dream behavior. What do I mean? Well...

The last couple nights both felt really really long to me, because I was having a series of semi-lucid dreams. Meaning, I knew they were dreams and I could nudge them along now and then consciously. And though I didn't know what time it was, I could nonetheless feel the passage of the hours. The night before last was okay, it was last night's that drove me nuts.

Everything was going along fine last night until, for some reason, I wanted to change something in the dream, and I was no longer able to. But every time I attempted to make a change, something else completely different would come up. Conjuring wasn't working, nudges weren't helping, banishing unwanted characters didn't help; and no one was listening to my words, either. It got to the point where I was crying with frustration (and might have been crying for real, too, I don't know), trying to wake up and being unable even to do that. So then, that failing, I was filling my mind with this loud screechy noise to overload myself and reset things. No idea why, but it worked; I woke up just long enough to reset things and go back to the chain of semi-lucid dreams, this time with a different plot.

I don't remember any of the plots or related details, though, strangely enough. Except that the dream causing me frustration had me living in the horrible house in the country we used to live in, with my family in the dream as well.

Just to clarify things, I didn't mind the long series of semi-lucid dreams... it was the fact of being lucid but unable to effect changes or wake up that was insanity-making.

Maybe the problem with your dream is that the unwanted characters were taking over. If so, what you need to do is put yourself to sleep within the dream, while rigging it so you will wake up within that dream in a few seconds, which will pass like days in the next dream, then come up with a labyrinthine environment for the next dream so the characters there can't find you, then put yourself to sleep in that dream as well, then repeat the process until you are several more dream levels in, then you have to implant a thought in a specific place in that dream level that will evolve in your mind, and that will set the dream on the first level right, but to keep from dying in the deeper level, you have to go several levels deeper, then get rid of another element in THAT dream, then go back through all of the other levels until you wake up. Of course if you die in any part of your dreams, you will get stuck in a dream limbo and you won't be able to get back to reality. And it still is not entirely certain that you are not STILL dreaming right now, stuck in a dream limbo already.

Did you get all that? Most people who saw the movie apparently did not.

What country did you live in? Did you really live there or was that just within the dream?

"The country" as in farmland. And yes, we really did live there once.
