My Crazy Dreams!

For as long as I can remember I have had the most vivid and realistic dreams.  I don't know if this is due to being bipolar or just having a very inventive mind.  My dreams are so real it's like I have another world I enter into every night; it's great!

I have several reoccurring dreams that are similar in some ways and different in others.  The odd thing is there are a couple different locations that reoccur in my dreams too; like another apartment that we live in.  Sometimes I wake up and look around me and think what happened to our apartment?

I express a lot of my feelings in my dreams, especially anger.  One of the reoccurring locations is the house I grew up in with my mom and brother.  I dream sometimes that we are living there and I get into a fight with my mom and threaten to move out.  I end up packing all my things and leave to move in with my boyfriend (my husband in real life).  This is one of those dreams that is similar but changes from time to time.

What's crazy is over the years I have learned to change my dream as I am dreaming.  If I don't like something that happens I can realize I am dreaming and change it.  What happens a lot now is in the middle of my dream I'll be reminded that I have a son, usually he's in baby form even though he is 2 in real life.  I have to find some way to incorporate him into my dream; either someone is watching him, he's in the other room, or something else that makes sense.

I occasionally have a time travel dream where I go back to when I was a child.  What's weird is when I travel back I get this stretching feeling that I am being twisted around while my feet are planted on the ground; the farther back in time I go the more twisted around I get.  The feeling I get tells me I am not supposed to be traveling back in time, but I do it anyways.  I wonder how much of my dreams are influenced on the way my body is feeling at that time; is my body twisted up when I am dreaming?

I bet dream analyzers would have a blast with my library of crazy dreams; I sure do enjoy them!
