    Default Dreams

    I wrote a post over 2 years ago now on the subject of dreams.

    I wouldn,t expect anyone to remember it but here is the link for those interested,
    it was on the subject of dreaming post op colloid cyst.

    Well today I had my usual afternoon nap and definitely had a dream which i remembered just after waking,this is significant as it will be the 1st time it's happened in 5 1/2 years.

    [ For those interested one was about enrolling in fortune telling classes and the other was about doing stunts on a bmx style bicycle.] - I've never done either in real life,so they are dreams as opposed to memories.

    I don't know the significance of this or if it is the beginning of a new phase in the recovery process.

    so i figure it means either....

    A. That I have started to dream again
    B. that I have always dreamed but now possibly started to remember some dreams on waking

    If nothing else,that I have retained the mechanisms to dream.

    Hi Bill,

    I notice I dream occasionally. It is not consistent. Nor is it consistent if I will actually remember the dream itself. Sometimes I remember pieces, othertimes, I remember the feeling that I had a dream.
    Strange, I know, but most of my journey has been strange, and I expect nothing but strange in my dreams! Thanks for putting out thought provoking posts.

    Take Good Care, Dodi

    Default Dreams...

    Hi all,

    I've noticed that if I repeat in my head upon sleeping that "I remember my dreams easily" I will remember them more often than if I repeat in my head that "I will remember my dreams upon awakening". That is if I tell myself that I have the power "presently" rather than at "some point in the future", I tend to get better results. It's still not at the level of pre-surgery but, at least, it's better than nothing. I think that we still do dream; we just are not as likely to remember those dreams.
