Default Weird Horrible Dream

I had a nightmare last night. It involved a family member dying, but I wasn't sad in the dream, just sort of 'meh'. I woke up today and recalled most of the dream and was like 'what the heck is wrong with me?'. I can control what my mind does to a certain extent when I'm awake, but when I sleep, it's always these weird nightmares when I don't react to situations like I should.

Hi,
It is quite natural for dreams to behave like this.
Dreams are always dreamt for a reason; to do a certain tasks during the sleep.
Your dream was dreamt to wake you up, and your subconscious used the contradiction that you did not feel sorry. Normally you would be heartbroken if it happened.
The subconscious uses the contradiction because it gets your brain to wake up quicker than a normal event.
It is likely that you were stressed or worried about something or someone before you went to sleep.
Normally a dream wakes you up without remembering it, however we all need a dream to wake us. Without a dream we would die.

I recently went to my father's funeral, and the whole time one of my voices was singing, "Another one bites the dust." This was amusing the first few times, but by repetition number 500 it was depressing. At least you didn't experience symptoms while you were asleep. I hate dreams where the voices are talking to me as I sleep. It's bad enough they have me 12 hours a day as it is; when they get me another 12, it sucks. Be glad it wasn't worse!

Has your relationship with that person changed recently? Maybe you are feeling the distance between you and aren't really dealing with it in your life.

Well, good question cause the person recently started a new kind of medication to battle weight. I can now recall more parts from the dream because of your question.

Yes. I am just worried about having such dreams repeatedly.

That must be bad.

I haven't had that kind of dreams again, so I'm relieved.

The dream was about the death of a part of yourself. You gave up this way. You let it go with out any sadness.

Interesting.

I had other strange dreams last night, usually it features people that I miss very much or really care about.
