Do you remember your dreams or tend to forget them upon waking? Do you have any recurring dreams or nightmares? I've heard people say that we don't dream in color. I've got news for them!

I remember dreams when I first awaken but most of it goes away quickly. However there are tidbits that are stuck in my head and won't leave for a couple of days. I have very disjointed dreams in respect to people, time and places. They are all messed up yet no one in my dreams seems to think it's abnormal. My dreams would make a screwy soap When I do remember dreams they come in bits and pieces out of nowhere.

And yes, I do have nightmares. For the first 5-6 years after I got away from my ex I would wake screaming 5-6 nights per week and it was always the same...I couldn't get away from this creep. Hubby has taken very good care of me through it all and those have mostly been gone for a long time now. I also have several repeating dreams that are just stupid ones. Don't know what those are about.

So, what kind of dreamer are you? Do you remember them? Have nightmares? Recurring dreams? Or are they just silly like many of mine are?

I used to be able to remember my dreams when I was younger. Anymore, I know that I have dreams, but my memory seems to fade as soon as I wake up. I think that most of them are probably rather silly, as I think that I would remember them better if there were nightmares. When I was younger, I used to have a lot of nightmares. I particularly remember dreaming a lot about snakes. I have always had a very intense fear of themfor some reason-they are one of the few things that I am really afraid of. My dreams would be very vivid, and I would be in just about every terrifying situation imaginable with snakes. Sometimes I was even a snake handler. One who was terrified of snakes! I would often wake up screaming. I think the ones that I have now are boring by comparison.

I find I dream alot more ever since my fibro has gotten worse, maybe due to the fact I'm not getting alot of deep sleep? I also find that oddest things I see or hear or notice during the day I will dream about all jumbled up together in the weirdest dreams. People that I know in my dreams often don't look like themselves and places don't look anything like the places I'm dreaming about. For example if I'm dreaming about being at work , I know it's where I work but it doesn't look anything like the actual building I work in. Strange and sometimes disturbing lol.

I use to have preminition dreams. It was strange. I would dream about something over and over and eventually it would come true. I don't anymore, at least I don't think I do. I do dream in color, that I know.

Sometimes I have nightmares, but not like I use to. I got a dream catcher and it works. I think it is a psychological thing though, not the actual dream catcher.

I have dreams that continue from one night to the next. It is like living a second life. Strange...

I dream a lot, in color and they are usually very weird. One thing I've noticed though is that I am always young and thin in my dreams. Not so in real life. Diane

My dreams usually revolve around relationships, trying to straighten out something between people, or trying to figure out what's going on - just like my waking life!! Nothing that would make for an exciting novel, that's for sure. Then there are the recurring ones where I'm rushing to make a 10:00 plane, it's 9:00 and I'm still packing - a reflection of my lifelong problem with time.

But last week, I actually flew (well, "swam") through the air. What a spectacular feeling! I haven't flown since I was a kid. Hope it means something good.
