I just tried to spell 'sneak' as 'sneek'. And I can blame it all on Sneek. (actually, if you search for 'Sneek' on the Armory, there's quite a long list)
Why are some people troubled by their dreams and others not? Has there been psychological studies of this? Surely there have. It is chemical? A matter of habit? I am convinced it's got nothing to do with the state of one's conscience. I don't know if this is a luxury of mostly untroubled sleep, or an actual cause of it, but I am a firm believer in the fact that my dreams are mine and, as such, utterly under the control of me (conscious or unconscious).
That means, if my dreams are scary, or frustrating, or sad, I am doing it to myself, just as much as the happy, or fun, or intriguing ones. And I just don't put up with me scaring myself. I can remember a few times thinking a dream was headed to scary territory, only to have it take a sudden turn. The effect is usually surreal when I wake, but not scary.
Of course, it could all be chemical, and I am luckier than I deserve.
(maybe I should point out my conscious mind and my sub-conscious don't really seem to talk to each other much. I mean, I could be all "la la la This is FUN!' in my conscious mind just before I go on stage with a costume, but my guts, on the other hand, are gearing up for full rebellion. Either that, or I really had food poisoning the weekend of going on stage as Lilith that first time and somewhere my gut is 'remembering' that that goes with getting on stages. Not sure. Did I mention conscious and sub-conscious not talking much?)
