There are real dangers though. Someone who's psychologically facile might lose the ability to distinguish between dreams and reality and treat the real world as if it was a LD dream. If one is good enough to do WILDS one could become stuck in a LD nightmare for hours (the same as being in a world of absolute terror for hours). The terror is much more extreme than anything you'll experience in real life. It's very possible for some one to have post traumatic stress disorder after being so trapped or for the experience to trigger a real life heart attack. None of these are dangers that normal lucid dreamers have to worry about.

Anyway, in my opinion, there is no way to over do it and become a vegetable. If someone is obsessed with it they may loose touch with waking reality and that could be bad. Post traumatic stress disorder is possible if you are stuck in a sick nightmare for hours and cannot escape. I luckily haven't had any that lasted too long and a strong, reassuring mind helps.
When lucid, the good times are twice as good, but the bad times are twice as bad. BUT Most of the time they are good, like any dreams you usually have. It is less dangerous than living life. (which seems to kill all of us in the end....)
