Dreams

    I'm a prolific dreamer. I often remember much of my dreams and get caught up in thinking about them during the day. I dream about everything from beautiful places that don't exist that are very serene and soothing to surreal nightmares about nuclear bombs, demons, axe murderers and chicks with dicks. I don't have recurring dreams but there are places, places that don't exist, that recur quite often. One is a mountain, a majestic rocky mountain with a little village near the top. Another is a great river that empties into the ocean with a bridge right at the mouth. I also often dream of places where I used to live or work. I dream about death a lot too, never of my own but of others. I sometimes dream about people who have died and although they're alive in my dream I know that they're dead and they almost seem like zombies. I also have what I call fail dreams, like I'm trying to put on a pair of pants but I keep putting both feet down the same leg or I'm trying to read a map and all of the names are out of focus. I've had dreams where I had a fleet of beautiful cars and none of them ran.
    I just thought I'd throw this out here in case that there are others here who also may be interested in dreams.

    DC, your life is almost as weird asleep as awake. :p

    I tend to sleep deeply and have vivid dreams. This is a bit of a challenge in the morning. I'll be awake enough to hit the snooze button, and part of my brain knows I have to get up, but then who will protect the schoolchildren when the drug lords bring the cannons back? I know! I'll hack this alarm so it changes the world's time, and then I have plenty of time to build the spaceship. Whew, that was close. Zzzz

    Classic dreams are "chase" dreams. Your being chased or running from something. Godzilla, monsters, bad guys after you.
    Escape deams. Your in a maze or building and trying to get out. I have these a lot.
    Walking around naked or missing an article of clothing.
    Work not finished or a problem.
    Flying dreams.
    Talking to someone dead. Or a passed pet.
    Some people dream in color. I do.

    I had a dream that Kobe Bryant scored 46 points in the first half of a game. No clue about that.

    I can usually remember my dreams when I first wake up, but my memory seems to deteriorate as I actually begin to function. :lol:

    Maybe I'll start writing things down (I feel old now).

    I never claimed to be normal :wink:
    The dreams that I often have upon waking up and falling back to sleep are the ones where you dream that you've gotten out of bed and are getting ready for work or whatever and weird stuff starts happening. Then in the dream I awaken from that dream but in reality I'm still asleep and dreaming and this can go on for a long time. Every time that I think that I'm waking up from a dream I'm in fact just dreaming that I've awoken.

    I have all of those dreams too. Sometime I dream that I'm sitting on a toilet and suddenly discover there's a window behind or beside me and people are walking by. I dream a lot too of being on an airplane but sitting on the outside like on the wing or holding on to some other part. I used to dream about being at work and suddenly realizing that I was naked from the waist down.

    My most common are the dreams where I'm falling, and where I can't seem to lift something that's very heavy. Sometimes I dream in Spanish, but usually when I see people in my dreams, words don't exist, I look at people and the communication is understood.

    Maybe it has something to do with the litany of drugs (nothing too hardcore) that I've put into my body over the years, but most of my dreams are frustrating, frightening, or trippy. I can't recall a single "good" dream.

    buckeyebri Reach down between my legs...

    I have a lot of dreams where I am seemingly "frozen in place", I can't quite get somewhere, or reach something. I also tend to have a lot of what I would call "premonition" dreams. Dreams that don't make much sense based on the people or places, but end up to be a dejavu (sp?) scenario somewhere down the road.

    My recurring dreams are:

    - playing a sport and my hand rotates 360 degrees on my wrist like a GI Joe figure. I can't dribble a ball, throw a pass, nothing.
    - teeth fall out as I am eating.
    - Whenever I stay in a hotel room, I begin believing I am going to oversleep and my brain comes up with insane reasoning or actions it has to take to stay asleep. None of them ever make sense and are normally miniscule tasks I have to complete, like hitting a button and I can go back to sleep.

    I usually don't remember what I have dreamt about, I only seem to remember who was in the dream.

    Of the dreams that I do actually remember, the only recurring one that I have is one where I hear somebody in the house, and I am 100% paralyzed in the bed; can't move, can't open my eyes, can't yell out for help. This usually occurs when I have the flu or some sort of illness.

    I used to have those dreams quite often but it's been a while since I've had one. I'd always wake up sort of screaming/yelling.

    Get flying quite a bit, but the major issue I have is controlling the flight, i can basically go up but kind of have to fall down and don't feel tremendously comfortable moving horizontally. It's a very realistic feeling adrenaline wise (rising, falling etc).

    Also get the whole, move stuff around with my mind/waving my hands "jedi" style type of thing, Is often mixed in the flight deal (Pushing myself off the ground causing the flight). It's interesting because my ability to do that in dreams is often impacted by how aware I am of doing something that isn't normal. Ala I'll be able to start the dream off doing it but as I become more aware that I'm doing something I'm not supposed to be able to do the ability diminishes or changes in some way.


    The other extreme I suppose is dreams where I'm unable to use my legs at all. Trying to get somewhere but basically reduced to a slow tired crawl as I try to pull myself around.

    Teeth falling out is another common dream.
