Dreams

Hi All I’ve just noticed that since being diagnosed in June I have stopped dreaming at night. Anyone else noticed this? I used to enjoy a good dream, waking up and feeling that you have done something during the night. I once dreamed that I had won the Euromillions and lived in a huge mansion with Cheryl Cole ! Still waiting for that one to come true!

Ha, I have been the opposite, dream every night, still waiting for the Cheryl Cole one.

As a bonus I am rarely in my wheelchair in my dreams!

Used to dream every night.

Very rarely dream now.

Can’t say it happened right away but gradually over the years.

Like a good dream.

After diagnosis I used to have a recareing dream that I was running but felt terrible when I woke up and realised that I couldn’t.

Hello there,and I hope you have as good a selection of Halloween junk in the shops as we do.I’ve always dreamed in Technicolour,it still persists, I can still walk, don’t experience constant pain,but often it’s the intrusion of that which forces me to wake up and leave the Harem.It always happens just before I,[deleted for the sakes of the sensitive]

Hi,

I to dream most nights. My re-occuring dream is that I am riding my horse and that I am totally free and invincible. Bet dream psychologists would have a field day with that!

I like the idea of living in a mansion minus Cheryl Cole [for obvious reasons] and a Harem that just sounds postively exhausting.

Oh, that lottery win seems to JUST be a dream sadly but I could skip Cheryl if nobody is offended!

See amitriptyliene seems to deaden dreaming but then I started LDN and that’s supposed to produce very vivid dreams… The only one I can remember gave me the right ump - I think I dreamt it just before waking :

I had a letter from the PIP people saying that as I’d taken so long in applying there was only a 0.2% chance they would uphold any claim from me… VIVID is an understatement, I could SEE that letter.

It would have been even funnier if a letter hadn’t showed up a few days letter saying that my deadline was approaching and they might disallow my claim - don’t panic(!) I called and got an extension, then filled out that atrocious form!

Seriously, wouldn’t it be helpful if there was some kind of stress relief offered with an MS diagnosis - after all, stress is bad for MS isn’t it?

I know, I’m rubbish but there was a lot of messing about when I first applied as they needed a certified copy of my marriage cert as my NI number was in my maiden name and I took time off then (being that I was an emotional wreck after diagnosis) but then I tried to carry on a ‘normal’ life - well, ‘normal life’ does not allow the time to fill out books that are masquerading as forms…

Ah, thank you for letting me dump that lot! I really do hope I can remember and have some nice dreams VERY soon :wink: Or better still, an actual lottery win :smiley:

I seem to vary between dreaming really random ridiculous stuff and not remembering dreaming at all.

The other night I dreamt about living in a house with my brothers and my son and they were all in their late teens/early twenties whilst I was my current age. The landlord came round to fix a radiator, took it off the wall, flicked a switch and watched the gas flames leaping up inside it before deciding that was a dangerous thing to do. Even more weird, it looked like an electric storage heater! I woke up wondering what the heck my subconscious was trying to fathom out from that dream.

How weird! I hadn’t realised I’d stopped dreaming until this came up. To be fair i’m still at the emotional wreck stage sonia was on about so I don’t get much sleep either! Maybe thats the reason i’m not dreaming?

Hello Perditaf,the exhaustion would depend whether you were in the harem or on it.Don’t you dare try riding into the harem to rescue me,I’ve got enough problems trying to stay there a couple of minutes longer…That’s all it would take!

For what it’s worth I think your dream is a treat for manning up and facing th’MS in this ‘peachy’ real world.Thanks for mentioning Cheryl,always room for a newcomer…So to speak

Lets hope both our dreams come true Wb… Cheryl would do for the first week anyway ! Thanks for mentioning Halloween, it reminds me of the mother in laws birthday ! (totally true!)

[/quote] Diagnosed 2years ago and haven’t stopped dreaming since, bad thing is there never good ones. Tell myself I’m not worrying but think I must be subconsciously.
