    Is the sentence okay?

    What a nightmarish thing for me is a cur bit me in my dream.

    What a nightmarish thing for me!
    => you cannot make it work as the subject of a sentence.
    ...is a cur biting me...
    ...in my dreams
    => that's somewhat redundant with 'nightmare'.

    or you can change this to:

    What a nightmarish thing for me to be bitten by a cur in my dreams.
