One of my front teeth fell out and I was devastated. I woke up and looked in the mirror and saw I hadn't lost it...and then my alarm clock went off and I realized that Poe was possibly right as All that we see or seem. Is but a dream within a dream. I think I've had similar dreams once or twice before but it was truly weird experiencing a minor version of "Inception".

Dreams like that are so scary, especially when they feel so real at the time. I remember once years ago dreaming that my entire top palate came away - I woke up completely freaked.

Hope you have better dreams for the rest of the week :)

Thank you. I don't often have disturbing dreams (at least that I recall) but it was the dream within a dream that was so unsettling.

I've had the 'losing your teeth' dream, it's all about anxiety and I think it's well known. Quite nasty and scary...hope you're over it now...

Oh I've had the scary losing/breaking teeth in my dreams before. This dream within a dream was just weird. Can't help wondering now if the creator of "Inception" had similar dreams that inspired the movie because I don't recall having any dreams within dreams until after seeing "Inception"...or maybe he was just a fan of Poe.

I think I've had dreams within dreams quite often...I'm not sure about Inception...is it a film?

Inception was a movie that came out 4 years ago starring Leonardo DiCaprio, Joseph Gordon-Levitt and Michael Caine. It's hard to describe which is why I gave you a Wikilink but it's all about dreams within dreams.

I have to see it now, sounds intriguing...thanks for the link. :) Come to think of it I might have seen it, I do have a soft spot for Leonardo, I think he's a cracking actor.
