I also have recurring bad dreams. I can only call them my nightmares as they aren't horror movie stuff or monsters, but just dreams around the same theme that I get daytime worries about only magnified to weird extents.
Dreams about home repairs, kids getting hurt (costly medical bills), wife cheating on me or asking for a divorce, getting attacked by bees. Thing is none of these things are really things I need to worry about. I don't have any pending home issues, kids are healthy but could always be involved in an accident, wife is as loyal as can be and I'm not scared of bees. etc. Heck matter of fact last night I dreamed about a water leak in my dad house from when I was 7 years old. Had to get the downstairs ceiling in a room repaired, but I woke up all sweaty in a panic.
I used to enjoy my dreams and even got to the point of being able to lucid dream and deal with my mind through dreams, but my anxiety in recent years has taken over and I can no longer control the dreams.
