I am attacked and then getting ill.

I am at thermal spa and my mother is near by. I mention something about some gambler. Then that gambler wants to attack me. I want to escape, but I am unable to. He comes towards and starts making accusations. He takes a gun and threatens with murder, suicide, I don't know. I am holding the gun and I am trying to divert it from my head, so the bullets go away. The police stops him. Everybody is safe and the police makes a record.

Later a woman or perhaps my mother comes with submachine gun. The guy from before is with her. They will start an attack. I am running away and go all around them, I swim in low water to hide from them.
Then I come in some building. I want to call the police, some woman is recording me. I am convincing the woman of danger and tell her what is happening.

#This part of the dream is missing, I don't remember it.#

I am in a room and the next moment something starts to happen with me. Branches(like tree branches, common ivy) I am very afraid and I can't stop this or control this.

What would that mean?

I had trobles with my mother's partner, who was gambler and it was a hard situation.
Now I have some body pains and I am afraid I might have a dangerous ilness.

Thank you

Re: I am attacked and then getting ill.

I forgot to add part about branch growth:

"I am in a room and the next moment something starts to happen with me. Branches(like tree branches, common ivy)start to grow out of my body. I am very afraid and I can't stop this or control this."

Re: I am attacked and then getting ill.

Al,
No doubt the dream is addressing the issues you noted in your post {troubles with my mother's partner/gambler and a hard situation}. But as with all dreams it is also addressing other issues that are related to and/or come from that relationship. My sense is the dream is focused on your own actions, perhaps reckless actions that are caused by/come from experiences in early life that involve your mother. that could point to childhood environment you grew up in. You are 'following' what you learned as a child, the environment in which you grew up being motivating factors in how you act as an adult {including your personality and attitudes}.

As for the body pains and fear of having a dangerous illness. The dream may be addressing this as well but not as an issue of an illness you may have but one that could come about due to the stress that comes from the emotional issues related to your mother and her partner. But I also sense the possibility of actions you engage in that may cause harm to you emotionally if not physically. Are you engaged in any risky actions in your recent personal life? Look at this part and determine if it is true.If not then the stress issue will be the pin and harm you are afraid of.

Below is my amplification of the images and actions in your dream {my usually way to analyze dreams}. They may help in understanding the dream language as well as point to aspects I can not determine but you may recognize.
Note: I can only provide an outline of the emotional energies from a dream with the limited info I have {age and gender}. The added info about your other and her partner provides some insights but more in-depth info would be required to get to other personal issues.

Re: I am attacked and then getting ill.

Thank you for your interpretation Jerry, which was very helpful.

My mother was violent in my childhood and now I am in a negative emotional situation at home. It is hard to me to escape it.

Re: I am attacked and then getting ill.

Al,
Pretty much what the dream is expressing. Your description you give of the relationship with your mother can be summed up in the amplification of the following dream language:

Later a woman or perhaps my mother comes with submachine gun. The guy from before is with her. They will start an attack.

Amplification
-woman/mother comes with machine gun-aggressive emotional energies related to mother
-guy is with her-masculine aspects accompaning mother relationship
-they will start an attack-causing pent up anger {mother experiences causing pent up anger within you}.

As for now being in a negative situation at home. The dream language "I am in a room and the next moment something starts to happen with me. Branches(like tree branches, common ivy) I am very afraid and I can't stop this or control this" focuses on that. Amplified it states it this way:
-in a room/something starts to happen with me-complexes that cause conscious actions
-branches-aspects of self that have grown from foundations {early life experiences}
-very afraid/can't stop or control this-lacking control to stop or control aspects in your life

You have a mother related complex that has carried over into adult life and now affects your life. What prompts your attitudes and actions is a complex {a related group of emotionally significant ideas that are completely or partly repressed and that cause psychic conflict leading to abnormal mental states or behavior}.
And this:
woman is recording me-feminine aspects that are absorbed internally

The early life experiences as a child with your mother were absorbed in your psyche and are motivators in your life as an adult. This is a lesson I have 'preached' for a long while, childhood experiences that possess strong emotional energies are stored in the child's psyche and remain there until resolved. You have to first 'go inward' {psychologically} and identify the issues, confront the repressed aspects {-this part of dream missing-forgotten contents/possible repressed aspects} and mend the issues so they no longer have control. My sense from the dream language is these energies are strong motivators in your current life. Resolution is needed {the purpose of dreams}.
