Hello everyone. I'm new here, so instead of making a 'i'm new here' thread, i'll just dive right in. I've always had odd dreams and as I've gotten older they've gotten more realistic and effect me more. Ive always had a dream where I'm driving, I don't feel well, pull over, get out of the vehicle and just black out. I wake up after that having trouble breathing, sweating, shaking. Not until the last couple of years has it gotten more detailed. Now,I know that in that dream, I died. I remember it too well. I remember the face of my wife as she looks at me, panicked. I remember telling her not to go. Not only do I have that dream. But I'll have dreams just doing every day things. I wake up knowing small details of it. For example, I remember looking at an older clock on the bed stand next to my bed. I woke up - and its not there. I looked everywhere for it and it took me a while to realise I was looking for a clock in a dream I had. I dream about golfing. I've golfed once in my life and I got so angry I couldn't continue... But I wake up and I want to go golfing like it's something I do just any old time.... but I know I'm far too competitive, so I try to avoid sports and games. I have dreams with children and my wives (I'm assuming I had more than one) the dreams are jumbled up. for example, i'll be at a different location one night and another one another night, or my kids are young and then in another dream, they've grown up a bit. different cars, different houses, different countries, etc. The past year I've woken from these dreams and it's hard for me to adjust back sometimes. Like I've been taken into another body to another time and suddenly I'm not me anymore... But I am. I've started a 'dream journal' only to find it missing some mornings and then find a poem written on a random page. I never write poetry. I read it often, I've never written it.... I think something triggered these dreams to start. I don't know what or where or why. I think bringing things in to my life now that I remember from these dreams makes me happy. I can't have the people back but I can have similar things... It's a way of adjusting I suppose. If this is a past life. I know I was a father to many children, a man madly in love with a woman, alcohol, and a need to spend more money than I needed to. Haha It's hard to wake up sometimes and realise it's all gone. I've got a family now and I've got to keep on keepin' on.
