Don’t scare yourself about having unusual nightmarish dreams - this eruption of dreams is a recognised phenomenon during a time of high anxiety in the general population.
We’re currently under siege by a lethal new Covid19 virus that is spreading rapidly around the world, so it’s quite natural to be afraid for your health, especially if your immunity is already compromised. When anxiety rises in a whole population - heightened by constant media reports - everyone is liable to recall past fears (even from stories and films) as well as present ones, resulting in a number of bizarre or fearful dreams. These are simply distorted reflections, however, not predictions of bad things to come.
What can you do to lessen their impact?
Best wishes for happy dreaming. Margaret Bowater
