I don't know about anyone else, but there are some things in my dreams it seems I am just not allowed to do.
For example, I am not allowed to cross a street, even if my dream takes me that way. When I try to cross the street, it first feels like I am walking through molasses. Then when I hit the middle of the road I will get a horrible case of vertigo, fall down, and be subsequently run over in graphic detail (For a while I got run over by a steamroller). Now, in maybe 9/10 of the dreams I remember, I die. Usually a few times per dream, but that's fine, it doesn't usually hurt. Unless I cross the street. Then it hurts, a lot. Not enough to wake me up mind you, so it just goes on and on.
Does anyone else have things in their dreams that they just cannot do, and attempting to do said action results in horrible consequences?
Not something I can choose to do but whenever I come to in a dream sitting in the back of my parents' car I know what happens next. We'll be on a motorway and a lorry will swerve out of nowhere and crush my mother's side of the car. I wake up in shock each time.
If I get into my parents' car by myself it won't move an inch, and I usually get trapped in it with something or someone I dislike (not my parents though. One time there was a horrible tiny harpy made of wood that bit my hand and it hurt like burning). If I drive a car it never looks like any car I've known and always accelerates by itself, usually resulting in a crash. I'll get a shot of pain through my limbs but that's it. Not half as horrible as yours.
