How great it would be to stop dreaming all night. . .

Thanks MJP! It is very nice to know I am not alone. I know what you mean; sometimes I would rather be in that "other life" since I seem to be able to get a lot more done "in there"! I just hate the fact that I don't think I will ever wake up refreshed again. I have given up hope on that, although there was a day in the summer of 2003 when I woke up not remembering any dream, and I woke up feeling great! No idea why, and have not been able to duplicate it.

So for now I will go on living with the fact that most people would never understand when I try to explain to them that sleeping makes me tired, as I am so "busy" dreaming all the time. I will even dream for a minute or two if I fall asleep for a brief time. So times I can even be falling asleep while watching TV and see things on the TV that are not really there. Half asleep, half awake.

I have tried to explain this "excessive dreaming" to doctors, but they just don't seem to believe me. Boy I wish they could dream like me for just one week, and then we would see how well they like it! Since that is not going to happen, back to the internet to find someone out there who finds this fascinating enough to want to help us figure out how to turn it off.
