When we go to sleep, our imaginations get the chance to run wild in the form of our dreams. Some imaginations are more creative than others...

Lately, I've been having a recurring dream about owning dozens of ferrets, guinea pigs, mice, and other small furry critters. They all live in tanks and cages stacked on top of each other. I start panicking when I realize that it's been a long time since I last fed some of them, and I frantically check if they're still alive. Then I notice that all of the ferrets have escaped their cage and I start looking around my house for them...

I always wake up from this dream feeling alarmed.

Some dreams are so emotionally impactful or vivid that they stay with the dreamer long after they've woken up. Redditor u/Dublessman got to hear about people's most interesting dreams when they asked, "What's the weirdest dream you've ever had?"

10. That's a new kind of lead poisoning 

"In gym class we were invading a Russian military base. I shot a lock with a gun, and then the bullet turned into liquid and landed in my mouth. I got led poisoning and my gym teacher gave me a gummy vitamin to treat it."

9. My throat feels funny...

"Last night I dreamt there was a little flappy bit of skin in my mouth, so I started to pull it to get rid of it. Turns out it was connected to my whole esophagus, and I ripped out like three feet of it and my throat started filling with blood."

8. I can't tell if they loved or hated that teacher

"Just a couple nights ago I had a dream my English teacher broke into my house, stole a little desk fan from my room, yelled at my family, and ate food from our pantry"

6. That's a scary dream to keep having

"I had a reoccurring dream as a child when I slept in a bunkbed with my sister where the room would flood and an alligator would come into our room and eat my sister on the top bunk. I'm still traumatized."

4. Are whales fast in real life?

"I forget the entire dream, but I was with some friends at the mall and then it suddenly filled with water and we were being chased by slow whales. We could still walk even though we were under water"

2. I'm guessing this manager wasn't the best to work with

"I had a dream about my manager from my old job flying around the grocery store with demon wings that moved around in circles instead of flapping, while also carrying a large flaming sword. He would fly around and cleave people's heads off while shouting 'Sucks to be you!!'"

"I had a dream where a shirtless old man was walking through the desert carrying a dead unicorn over his shoulders. I'm still trying to figure out what it means."

There are three different types of comas we can have. One is called toxic-metabolic encephalopathy, which is caused by illness or infection across the body. There's the medically induced coma which is caused by medical professionals to temporary cause a deep state of unconsciousness. Then there's the persistent vegetative state where the patient is the unaware of their surroundings and unable to movement.

However, after u/Pilot_Mosley asked Reddit, we're not so sure that every coma patient is completely unaware of their surroundings. Many people reported hearing their family or the nurses talking to them. Some said the had vivid dreams, only to learn those events actually happened.

Redditor Pilot_Mosley wanted to know what actually is going on in the unconscious mind and how it changed them after:

"Patients who woke up from a long coma, what's your story? How different were things?"

Read on to find out how the coma effected these people, whether it was a day or years.
