Ok, you gotta hear this one. I was struggling with insomnia, and on this forum till about 1:00AM. When I finally fell asleep I had this crazy dream. I dreamt that I was stuck in one of those garden mazes of hedges. I'm sure there's a name for those, but I don't know what it is called...like the kid who was running through in The Shining, remember?
Anyway, I was running as fast as I could, desperately trying to find a way out. All of you were there with me...Gachrons, Krysta, crazy harry, Sarita...all of you regulars! People were sitting at informational booths that said things like, "Remicade, Imuran, Probiotics, Makers Diet, Prednisone, etc. I finally stopped running and everyone came over to me, and I said, "You don't understand, I was once healthy and free..how did I get stuck in this crazy maze? If I got in here, then why can't I find the way OUT of here??? Gachrons gave me a hug (thanks for that!) and said, "You have to accept it, there is no way out, but we're all here." I started running away again, bumping into walls along the way, saying I just want to go home....and then I woke up!

So what do you think? Am I going completely insane???? Here's to hoping for a CURE, and I wish you that happiest possible Thanksgiving. I for one am thankful for all of your lifesaving support. Much love, GUMBY

That is a crazy dream... But it really says alot about how I think alot of us feel everyday.. I know everytime I go to the bathroom.. I wish I could just go back to how I was 5 years ago before it got bad..

I hope you have a great Thanksgiving as well.. I am new on here but I know one day I will be saying thank you to all of you for helping me.. This site is already helping me to deal with the understanding issue.. I still think I have a lot of denial and wish to think there is nothing wrong with me.. But it won't let me forget..

There are moments in your life that makes you and sets the course of who you're going to be. Sometimes there little, subtle moments. Sometimes, they're big moments you never saw coming. No one ask for their life to change, but it does. It's what you do afterwards that counts. That's when you find out who you are.

I agree, it sounds like a whacky one (but that's what makes most dreams fun) and it did speak volumes to you...hqaving crohns, being a life-long illness is just like being stuck in a maze but you are not alone in the maze and that at least is the comforting part (especially since you did get a nice hug).

I love sleeping for the main reason of dreaming...for the most part in my dreams I have wonderful and exciting adventures and even if they are sometimes related to CD (like public stall dreams which I have more than I care to) it's still funner being asleep and dreaming then awake and in reality.

Crazy dream! You're right.. we are all stuck in a maze....but the positive thing is you weren't in there alone.....imagine how terrifying that wouldn't have been . It goes to show how much this forum means to all of us. If you'd been alone, you might have just sat down and given up....but having that big old hug, and familiar people(support) there...you kept runnning....kept on trying. And I guess that is all we really can do....is weather each maze as it comes our way....we never know what will be around the next bend, but we do know this..... we won't be walking (or running) it alone!
thank you for this thread. ... I am Canadian...and your American thanksgiving is coming up...another good reason to give thanks for the support and friendship I have found here among all of you.
Happy Thanksgiving to all of you....and like someone said in another post....try not to over do "y'all"!

Hi Gumby Glad you got that hug. I know at night when I go to bed, sometimes I think of people I met here and it really makes me feel not alone anymore. I know we are all living on meds and thank goodness we have others to help us threw all of this. Being here with you all has been my home where there is lots of caring and understanding. I guess I am healthy now just in a different way then what I used to be we all are. Not sure what the definition of health is. Glad you made it threw your dream and you can count on those hugs when you need them .lol gail

Wow, that is such an interesting dream! I love the part about them sitting at booths with labels. Aren't the recesses of our mind something else!

Thanks again for all of your support. Sometimes I think I'm getting addicted to this forum, but it's what keeps me going..especially when I can't sleep! Health and love to all.

Nothing wrong with that...I wish these forums exsisted back in '91 when I first became ill, heck I didn't even have a computer until the mid 90's.

"Relax" said the night man "We are programmed to receive.. You can check out anytime you like, but you can never leave!" ( Eagles "Hotel California") 'bout sums it all up for me..
BTW, you may be spending TOO much time on the board. LOL
