Dreams Getting Stranger and Stranger

Ergh, I've not been looking forward to sleep at night at this point. Lately, my dreams have all included either me going insane, killing somebody, or both. The truth is I halfway enjoy these dreams, because they are actually very interesting, but I'm considering lucid dreaming to escape the bloodz. Does anyone know what this means, have something similar, or any tips on how to lucid dream?

    I used to have nightmares every single freaking night (they stopped now though, thank goodness) and I was only able to lucid dream once but apparently, I "wasted" it. It was another zombie dream but my dream self realized that time "wait zombies aren't real, right? so I must be dreaming, WAKE UP WAKE UP WAKE UP!" and I felt my eyelids move, it took several more tries to wake up for real and it might sound corny but I woke up just as the zombies were closing in. That was pretty much the only time I was able to legit lucid dream, not sure if it was helpful but there might be something in there that you could use.

    It's very hard (I know from personal experience), and I wouldn't recommend it to escape nightmares, for several reasons (though these are highly subjective). Firstly, I always have bad dreams (particularly of the zombie varety) when I'm catching up on lost sleep, so maybe you need to try sleeping more first. I usually aim for ~10 hours.

    Also, I read one scientific theory that dreams are our brain's way of organising memories when we sleep, and a less scientific one that we work through our day-to-day psychological issues in dreams, so I assume even the nightmares are important, so I wouldn't go trying to block them.

    Again, just try sleeping more, give your brain a chance to work itself out, I reckon it'll pass in time (but again, just my opinion).

    Thanks for the advice! I'll try doing that. ^^
