Mine was- I was at an old neighbors house and kept cleaning for them-they were infested. I started vacuuming and moving stuff and made the area was perfectly clean, then when I went back, there were more. I couldn’t keep up with it. I knew I had to leave. There was no getting control of the situation -with the vacuum anyways . we couldnt find the source of where they’re coming from and I said maybe to bleach the place. I kept gagging and spitting because I was so grossed out. I just wanted out.
I have a dream that I was looking at the mirror in my hotel room and my scalp had turned thick and yellow. There were like little holes that kind of looked like bad pimples, slightly red at the opening and when squeezed, instead of popping a pimple yellow maggots would come out. It was extremely scaring
I dreamt it was raining maggots on me and my family
I dreamt that I popped a pimple on my lip and a long ingrown hair came out of it followed by pus and maggots. I tried standing up from the bed to clean it off and there were so many tiny ants on my bed. It freaked me out so much and whenever I think of it I get goosebumps.
Ok so my dream was terrifying that I shit when I woke up. I was day out when I eating cereal in a small cup in the kitchen. Soon after, my mother and grandma come in with groceries and they both begin to talk in a quite tone but I could hear them. And they were talking about throwing away the old food because there could be maggots in them. So when they were talking about what food to throw out, I grabbed my cup a threw it in the sink because I wanted to check if I was eating bad food like maggots. And when I look at the bottom of the cup my cup now had little holes like a drain. However the holes were stuck with small white maggots. And a few seconds late I could feel something crawling in a spiral on my body. When I look at my arm, I could see like proabably four maggots crawling in my veins. there were some getting stuck and a bug one that just kept moving up my arm slowly but when I would look again it would be higher and higher than before. I overestimated my arm with my sleeve and try to stop the maggots by placing my fingers in their path but nothing. I was then feeling pain and light headed, and I still didn’t tell anyone. I went to boil water but I could feel my arm anymore. I then told my mom I’m in pain and she stood there without saying anything. I told her I can’t take it anymore I’m going to the hospital. She looked at me and said what?. I poked at the foor with my hair in my face and YELLED, I’m going to the f***ing HOSPITAL. and she said why and she said omg don’t tell me I think I know. She then Sprinted out the door I think it was to turn on the car because last time I was sick she did the same. And before I could run behind her and meet her in the car I passed out looking at my purple swollen arm, with veins that were popping out and maggots that could be seen in shapes of ovals. That’s the end of the nightmare. Could someone help me interrupt this.

I dreamt that I was an engineer at a police station working on a problem there (unknown what kind) and we attempted to enter the building but it was too small and krampt so we remained out side. A policemen came out and gave us kittens or puppies and they were covered with maggots. Our job was to pull them off but every time you removed them more somehow appeared in greater number. They were attached to the animal’s skin and difficult to remove, and furry, like caterpillars..
