Odd dreams, anyone?

Anyone else have odd dreams?

My first night home I had a strange dream about an old college boyfriend. He wasn't even a long term boyfriend, but one of those situations that it was never the right timing. We were both non-traditional students (ie: 29 & 39) with careers.

Anyway, this dream was so...out there. I haven't thought about him in years and have been happily married for ten. In my dream I remember being just crushed at knowing I couldn't have children with him.

That was the last time I took two Vicodin.

Oh, man I had some crazy dreams too before I stopped taking the oxi. Very crazy dreams and they were very realistic, the kind of dreams you think are real and you don't know where you are for a second when you wake up!!

The other night I had 2 strange ones.
First was that a neighbor boy came to play with my DS. There was some kind of accident or something, and the neighbor boy ended up getting hurt very badly. When I ran into where he was, his face was covered with huge blisters and he was screaming, holding his hands to his face. It was so real to me I jumped out of bed and turned on the lights before I actually woke up.
The second was that I started having problems with urination, ended up in the ER. The doc attending me was a doc I used to work for like 13 years ago, and not a very nice guy. He told me I would have to self cath, and when I told him I didn't know how, he said something to the effect of "Don't tell me I'm going to have to show you how to shove this up @@@@@" It was quite shocking, really.
Don't recall if I had any meds that night before bed or not....
Also had a dream that I lost my 88 year old grandmother on a college campus in a strange town.

Makes you kind of afraid to go to sleep, huh?

I had a sleepless night last night for the most part, but when I did sleep I had the most horrifying, distorted dreams! I really was afraid to go back to sleep! I know that vicodin sometimes causes it, so I swore off them completely now.

When I'm not having trouble sleeping I'm having weird dreams. Ever since the surgery I'm having dreams about strangers. . .people I make up in my mind, situations that are not about my life. Before the surgery my dreams at least had 1 person I knew. I figure my dreams don't want to deal with this either!

Heh. In my dreams, I'm young, vivacious and THIN! I don't mind going to sleep! I just seem to have some trouble getting there.

I am 2 months post op and I still have very vivid, realistic dreams -- like I can actually FEEL myself hugging someone and dream about people I haven't seen or thought of in years -- but some have been very intense and scary. I used to have dreams like this when I was pregnant, so I'm blaming it on the hormone changes.

At least, when I dream, I know I am getting a deeper sleep and that type of sleep has been rare, so I'll take it -- bizarro dreams and all.

Wow! Good to know I am not the only one out there! Since surgery 2 months ago have very strange, vivid dreams; often disturbing and very often violent (planes falling from the sky, hostage takings etc); not very restful!
They are fading as time goes on and are not as bad as they were; I think its from the anesthetic messing with your brain waves, but of course, no doctor will agree!!

Odd dreams, anyone?

The first week post-op I had some very realistic and bizarre dreams when I could doze off for an hour (hour and half if I was lucky). I had insomnia badly and was awake more than asleep the first two weeks.

I dreamed, in four separate dreams, that someone was breaking into the house.

I dreamed that I was in public (grocery store, mall and convention hall - not sure why those places) and suddenly starting squirting massive amounts of breast milk. I was squirting uncontrollably and I could not get it to stop. People were screaming and ducking. I was horrified and apologetic but no one understood. What a mess! LOL!

I had other weird dreams about people I knew years ago and have not seen or thought about in at least 20-25 years.

I dream in color normally and to have these dreams that were so realistic and then wake up suddenly I was not sure if I was dreaming or if it was really happening. It was disconcerting at times.

I have also had weird dreams about people from high school and college that I also haven't seen in years! I had a dream that I answered the phone during one of my naps and actually held a conversation with someone. It seemed so real that I looked at the phone log to see if it really had happened!!! I think it is the vicodin.

This is the best website! It makes me feel like I am not totally losing it!!!
