An intensely scary event occurring in your imagination while you are awkwake.

Like a day dream, but a horribly frightening one, such that it is more like a nightmare.
Aw man, what if that hott girl I hooked up with was my cousin? Shoot, I gotta go rip my eyeballs out!
Relax, man, it's just a daymare. She's not your cousin.

A daymare is similar to a nightmare, except that you have it during the day. A daymare could stem from paying your taxes to having to go to a dreaded job performance review meeting with your boss.
