I've just woken up from a 2 hr sleep on the sofa,I feel exhausted,more than when I nodded off,during my sleep I had two emotional dreams that felt so real when I woke up,if you read my blog yesterday 'f..k.. useless locum' you will know I had an emotional day at docs,probs with partner,reduced wages ect,the first dream was...I got up off the sofa and went into the kitchen to see a black cat,as I approached I realised it was my cat that died 7 yrs ago,I called her name 'Rosie',as I put my hand out to touch her she turned into a puppy,I turned around and there was another one,i looked on further and there was the puppies mother,there was a girl of about 20,I told her to keep away from my partner and hit her!then things changed to another story,I felt a presence behind me and it was my father who had died16 yrs ago,I reached out to him and he took my hand,i wanted to take him and show him that i still had things of his,I was actually aware that I could feel his hand and I partly woke up crying because I was so happy that his touch was so real,I went back into my dream and I said to him I need to hug you,we did this and he went,I woke up feeling rather confused,sad he'd gone and so exhausted,I guess there a couple questions I wanted to ask.
1,do you find that you have more dreams and nightmares now then when you didn't have fibro?
2,do they seem more intense than before and very real?
3,do you feel exhausted having dreamt so mutch?
4,and for those that believe in the meaning of dreams do you think it's telling me something.
I would appreciate your thoughts on sleeping and dreams.
I will say it felt very real to hug my dad after so long,I feel a bit emotional.xxxx
