I had a sex dream about my dad who used to sexually abuse me.
I'm 24 years old. When i was a young girl, my dad used to sexually abuse me and my sister. It was happening in the whole family, my uncles sexually abused their daughters and us, and my father did the same with other girls in the family. It was disgusting, really.
I used to have fights with my dad about that, I stood to him and confronted him a lot and he used to hit me for it until that ended when I was like 15 years old. He also used to physically abuse us and my mother all the time. Our lives when he was around were a fucking nightmare.
I had a little sister, we tried to protect her from all of that for a long time, I'm not sure we did though. When she was 16, she killed herself. She threw herself from the roof and died instantly. I know that my father was the one who caused that.
I'm telling all of that to say that I really hate him for a lot of reasons, not the ones that I can let go. We live without him now and whenever he comes, I don't talk with him and I try to not even see him. I go out, pretend that i'm sleeping or just ignore him. He tries to talk to us but we don't want anything to do with him. My sister and I are trying to fix what he did to us without any professional help because where I live there isn't that much of good therapists and we can't afford the good ones since we don't have time, so..
Today I had a dream that I was having consensual sex with him. I wanted it to happen and I felt good. I don't know what does that mean. When I'm awake, all I think of him is that he is a pathetic, worthless old piece of shit, and If you saw him or dealt with him you would agree. So I'm so confused about that dream.
Normally when I have a weird dream, I talk with my boyfriend about it and he tries to help me figure it out. By the way, my boyfriend and I don't have sex because I'm having troubles with my sexual life, and that's very okay by him because he's giving me the time I need before trying to have sex. So now I can't even talk to him about that fucked up shit to help me. Does anybody have any explanation for this or any Idea what is that all about?
Sorry for talking too much but I was trying to give you an idea about the whole situation.

Have you ever had a recurring dream that ended up being reality?
I once had a recurring dream with a glare where I was looking up at a ceiling and watching full house on the TV. It recurred for like 6-7 months. Then, when I went to the dentist, that full house scene played and I was looking up. They were extracting 3 of my baby teeth.
I had others where I was walking around a prison gate at night. Then, a few months later I was hired as a CO. Two months after that, I was walking a fence-line at night because we had it go off on a certain sector...

I had a dream months ago about a dead person I never knew, then googled his name only to find out he was a real person. Here I am months later, and his name randomly came to my head. I googled him...
Several months ago, I woke up one morning remembering a strange dream I had the previous night. In the dream, I visualized a phone with “new text messages” that said, “_FirstName_Last Name is dead!!” (Keeping name undisclosed per the loved ones’ privacy). Today, it is about 2.5-3 months later since I had this strange dream, and his name randomly came to my head when I was going about my daily business. I told my girlfriend about how his name showed up in my head again, and she was shocked to find an obituary that said that he had died TODAY, 2 years ago. I remembered this complete stranger I dreamt of in a dream, ON THE ANNIVERSARY OF HIS DEATH. Does anyone know what this means?? Please help me understand, I feel I have a very strange connection/meaning with this person!! Also, SERIOUS ANSWERS ONLY please. Thank you.

Dreamt that I showed my dick in a zoom meeting
I was in my room just vibing and decided to get comfortable. However when I whipped it out to readjust it someone said woah woah and blocked my stream. I didn't even notice a meeting was on let alone it had people I knew. I said it was an accident and someone said "don't worry, you're a nice guy" but it left me with horror.
