Dreams giving me grief during the day... - April 19th 2010, 05:48 AM

I didn't really know where to put this post, feel free to move it Mods, if there's somewhere else it'd go better.

For the past few months, I've frequently been having incredibly vivid increadily real dreams that I almost always remember. It's a rare occasion when I don't wake up in the morning and remember my dreams. The problem is most of them are deep and when I wake up in the morning I'm very shaken by them.

They make me act in real life, do things I wouldn't do otherwise and the outcomes of those actions aren't always good. I'm acting on these dreams when the things that happen in them aren't real. For instance, I often have dreams about having great, amazing relationships with people, but when I wake up, these relationships aren't real and it makes me feel so guilty because I have a girlfriend of 2 years and the dreams rarely include her anymore. When I wake up, I feel so upset for the loss of that relationship that doesn't exist and I often spend all day thinking about how it's not real and how upset that makes me. It's not just relationships that I dream about though. There's other issues too that make me feel things in real life and sometimes act on my feelings because they are so strong.

They also make me think about things, bring up issues I don't want to think about, they bring to the surface emotions that I don't have the time or energy to feel at the moment. There's issues I'm trying to work through but they're recurring themes in my dreams and that makes it harder and harder to deal with them, because they bring up more and more associated issues.

It'd be okay if they were once or twice a week but it's every single night and sometimes more than one dream in a night, about either the same or different things. It's driving me nuts. Waking up in the morning is just nasty because as I said, I almost always remember the dreams and quite vividly. I always remember the message and the main idea. I wish I could sleep peacefully for once, having dreamless nights are great because I can wake up in the morning and not feel exhausted, drained and completely shaken because of what I've dreamt about.

Any advice?

I remember dreams aswell but it shouldn't be that bad, Liadan.

What I suggest you to do is try to keep in plan, sort out one then another, it may take some time and feelings to go through it I know how it feels because I've had bad few years and I coped with it and I know you will too.

Just focus on the main ones and sort them out ( I know they bring up emotions and thinkings that you don't want to be brought up with) but it's worth it in the end.

I'm here if any need.


Live the life.
