Are you a dreamer? I don't mean a day dreamer or someone who's just an airhead...but do you dream at night? Do you remember your dreams? How do you feel about them?

I've listened to people lecture on dreams and sometimes it's interesting and others are a wee bit over the edge for me. But I dream way too much and not only are they vivid and feel real but they are often just plane old weird. People I know are someone else, animals are people, places are I don't like to dream. I wake up confused often. Plus had years of nightmares after I divorced so I prefer not to dream but I guess we cant' control it. Does anyone else dream in color? I do! If anyone knows of a way to turn them off please pass it along... idea

What do you remember about your dreams?

This is great!

I do dream quite a bit. If they are just "normal" dreams I forget them shortly after waking up. However, I have had a few wild and crazy dreams that I STILL remember.

The ones I hate are when I am in severe pain and dream that I have been shot/stabbed etc in that location. Waking up confused is the worst!!! Thanks for posting this...I got a much needed giggle tonight!

Here is a funny dream I had while planning my wedding, I copied this from an email I sent to my Mom:

I had the craziest dream last night/this morning...I was "over" all the wedding drama and we decided we were better off going to the JOP (Justice of the Peace)

So, I climbed into my wedding gown and loaded into my 1989 Toyota Camry (my first car when I was in High School, but somehow it appeared so new and nice) with my Mom and Sister. I have no recollection of Alan (my fiance) being there...ANYWHERE? Maybe we were just checking out the process at the JOP, but uh, in my wedding gown? Maybe I didn't want him to see me "before the ceremony" lol

I get there and it resembles the DMV or Unemployment Line...(how funny is that....for those that know what I have been through lately) There are all kinda of "rough" looking people. They are standing in a line and it is moving sooo slowly.

Next, a woman is sobbing and in a hurry...she says, "I want my grandmother to be here" and as I turn to look 6 huge guys still in funeral wear, carrying in a casket...I quickly thought WHAT?!!?!? Why didn't I think of that!!!!!! (Ok, I know it's sick..but it was a dream)

As I sit on a wooden bench, one of those "thin" ones that are attached to a wall... (why?? who knows), I remember reaching down to smooth out the bottom of my wedding gown....when what do I find???? There are cigarette burns in the "organza overlay" on my gown (Hello...I no longer smoke anymore...not that I would EVER smoke near my wedding gown!!!!!)...I start flipping out and telling my sister we need to go rip someone's aXX at David's Bridal...(as I am looking down at my gown it is no longer silk, satin, organza etc....but it is made of rubber..balloon material!!!! Can you imagine how FLATTERING that was????)

The last thing I remember I am leaving the JOP and headed to David's sister driving and my mom putting my dinner (a double cheeseburger from McD's) in her purse!!!!

Wow, What did I eat last night?????

I hope my REAL wedding isn't quite like my "DREAM" wedding!!!!

I have never noticed if I dream in color or not. I dream many times a night. I also remember most of them and my husband always tells me I need to write books about them. I dream of scary stuff and I love it. I don't get scared in my dreams and if I do I think its just a really good movie.

A classic dream I had many years ago which I know was in color was about Zombies. I like my zombies and vampires. Well I was running aound this small town and everyone was turning into the walking dead. My mother grabbed me and I noticed she was infected and she smiled at me and said "I'm your mother I should be able to eat your brains."

It was so chezzy I laughed so hard I woke up!!!!!

I hardly ever dream anymore (that I know of). But recently (the last several months), whenever I have, they've been nightmares. smhair I don't think I dream in color, but I'm not sure... I think that I don't sleep enough/get much REM sleep. My quality of sleep is pretty awful, because I usually wake up every time I reach REM sleep, because it is painful for me. Nothing beats a wonderful dream, though!
