I have had the most bizzare dreams you could imagine after starting Lexapro about a year ago. I have one repeatedly where I can't dial the telephone. And another one where I can't get out of the car. I know this can be a lovely side effect of meds...but like you, many times I wake up and go right back into the same dream.
I dream that school dream too! It is high school and suddenly I have not graduated. I am 44 years old and graduated forever ago.
I am the author of this particular research. And this week many of us are presenting our work at a psychology conference. All night last night (in my dreams) I work on one of my presentations, doing it over and over and over!! That one was done, but while sleeping,somehow I was not happy with it anymore! I've just got one more to finish today and handouts to write and I'll be done!
Worried about the sleeping while at the conference. I am sharing a room with 4 other people! No one will be able to sleep cuz I will be jumping out of bed and talking and a bunch of stuff.
Me too...the being in school and not being able to find my locker. I walk up and down the rows of lockers and try all kinds of combinations to see if they work. I am so worried I won't make it to class and not graduate. Weird, huh?
I wonder if a lot of people dream about school? Often I am sitting in the back of the class wondering how I got there and not remembering ever taking the class before and there is a test! Then I can't get the locker open.
But the weirdest part is the floaty bouncing down the hallway thing that occurs in the dreams - it is like walking on the moon. Wish I could do that in real life!
