The dreams of suicidal patients are contrasted to those of nonsuicidal, depressed patients. The dreams of suicidal patients often reveal wishes for revenge, punishment, reunion, fusion, & rebirth. Confusions between the patient’s body, & that of others are suggested by the dreams of some suicidal patients.
