Thankfully, I've had way less of the crazy, violent, scary dreams since I started taking Endep (or, should I say, since it finally kicked in after almost 4 weeks). I'm still dreaming a lot - just not as intensely.

I did have a good dream the other night. I've recently been back in touch with my first boyfriend from high school and things are...well, good. <img src="http://narcolepsynet...#>/biggrin.gif" style="vertical-align:middle" emoid=":D" border="0" alt="biggrin.gif" /> My dream was that we met each other (after about 18 years of no contact!) and it was great...but his entire family - mum, dad, sister, brothers - were all there watching those first few moments. Talk about awkward LOL!

Nothing else to report, coz I can't think of any other positive dream I've had in a long time.


That's funny that you say that you havev dreams of your exes because I do and a lot. I dream that we r back together...........so bizarre but so real. I wake up with smiles. Lol. Maybe my subconcious is trying to tell me something lol.

Back when I had the dream I'm about to describe, I put it in the weird category, but it fits here too.

In early February of 2006 (years before my N diagnosis), I dreamt that a guy I worked with kissed me. In the part of the dream I remember, he leaned toward me, cradled my face in one hand, and gently touched his lips to mine, a perfect, lingering, tender kiss…when I abruptly shoved him away, indignant, hissing, "you're married!" He replied, "But I'm separated; we are getting divorced." I snorted in disbelief, "Let me know when it's finalized. Maybe we can talk." There the dream ended.

When I remembered the dream the next morning, I was so embarrassed (silly, I know, but there it is :blush: ), as well as surprised. The co-worker in the dream was, in fact, married, and very happily from what I saw. I didn't have much interaction with him, and usually only in small group settings, one in which he had mentioned, about five months prior to my dream, that he and his wife had decided it was time for a second child. Clearly, not the man in my kiss dream. I was also surprised that I had had such a dream since at the time I had been dating a guy for eight months who I really liked, and adding the fact that I had never consciously thought of that co-worker as... well, at all (this was no comment on his attributes; he had a wife, and therefore was unappealing and unacceptablefor my romantic fantacies). But the memory of that perfect, beautiful dream kiss stayed with me.

Then, about two months later, this same co-worker told me and a couple of other colleagues that he and his wife were getting a divorce, that they had separated in February, when she had asked him to move out and stay with friends until she could find her own place. She had moved out the prior weekend, so he now felt he could talk about it to people at work. I could tell the divorce wasn't his idea by the way his face twitched when he spoke of it, but, at the time, I didn't feel I knew him well enough to ask any questions; truthfully, at that moment I was anxious to get as much physical distance between him and myself as possible--I felt weak all over, on the verge of collapse (had no knowledge of cataplexy at the time)--because I had just realized that I had had the dream of his perfect, tender kiss, his telling me he was separated, the SAME week he had actually moved out and begun staying with friends. Bizarre, non?

Well, I have to tell you, the reality of his perfect kiss is just as I dreamt it was, and is just as tender today as it was on that Sunday in March, 2008, when the minister said, "you may kiss your bride," and my husband leaned toward me, cradled my face in one hand, gently touched his lips to mine, a perfect, lingering, tender kiss... :wub:

I have these vivid dreams that are so scary, but many times I am able to remember I can fly... it really is the greatest feeling, I just have to run real fast and jump and up in the air i go.

I also have dreams that i can spin like an ice skater or a ballerina... but i start to spin till my feel are off the ground and I spin sooooooo high! I have those a lot.

I had a dream that I started to control and willed Brad Pitt to come and keep me "company" that was real nice! B)

I like flying... except in airplanes ...in dreams. Which is great, because I don't drive. So, I'm often walking in my dreams...which sometime turns into flight. Though its more like I'm walking along when suddenly I miss the ground and keep walking through the air...and I can step higher into the air as I need to.... Yet, it doesn't stop me from have driving dreams....which I hate, because they'll always involve not being able to stop. Though the accident where I stopped driving was because I did stop. Strange...occurs to me that my bike accident was also the same.

I had sunk several grand into fixing up car just before I totaled it. I had new brakes and new tires. Bike accident was after I had gotten it tuned up....I stopped really good when I braked for a tree that wasn't there. It was they flying I did afterwards that wasn't much fun.

The Dreamer.

I had a dream several years ago that I awoke from and was absolutely convinced it really happened and to this day half believe it did. It's fitting to tell it now since the new Hunger Games books/movies vaguely remind me of it. I dreamed I was born into a different dimension into a privileged society. There was only the privileged and grotesquely underprivileged. The two did not mix. I knew when I was born into the "royalty" family that I did so with a mission. I lived a full life of luxury but as I was growing, I secretly made friends with some of the "untouchables." As I got older, I knew the underprivileged were starting a revolution and there was going to be a nasty, vicious war. I knew my role was to form a bridge between the societies and use my position to negotiate peace. I worked with the rebel leaders, there was a group of five, boys and girls. I became very close with them. There was war, but not full revolution when I remember telling them that the process had begun. It was up to them to take what we had done together and continue to mend the rift in society, but that I was asleep in another world and I had to go wake up then. I gave them all hugs and we cried. I told them that I would remember them in my heart forever, but when I awoke, some things would fade and over time, I may not remember clearly, but would always love them. I wished them good luck, said goodbye, and woke up in my bed.

I had a beautiful, good dream last night!  That is so unusual for me!

 

 

I had a dream I was a professional ballet and contemporary dancer.  I moved with amazing fluidity and flexibility, I was confident and pretty and in perfect shape, I expressed everything I wanted to express with movement and music.  I could smell the chalk that I put on my feet (apparently my feet were sticking to the floor too much) and I could feel myself jumping.  I didn't hate the Spandex body suit I was wearing, either.

 

I wish I had more vivid dreams like this. I might be able to tolerate the non-stop dreaming this way.  <3
