In the middle of last night, with no PC, tablet or 'phone connected, caretaker sent me some "karma" - complete with a screenshot (!) of a BBC News ticker tape along the lines of "Downing St is proud to say that over 6.5 million people have now received their first mittens".




Mushrooms for supper yesterday?

Well, yes as it happens, but backed by his earlier explanation of a meme that I had completely missed out on.

So all's good.

I was up struggling with retrieving stuff that I'd knocked over sans mobility at 1:30, then my roomie needed help from a few nurses from 2 - 2:30. I regained my strength and let pain subside until 3:30 then asked for and rec'd 2mg hydromorphone but didn't fall asleep; instead felt a bit energised and messed around on here and posted my long booze post at 4:44 so probably drifted off at 5, and then dreamed.
I walked to the club and bands were loading in, sound and lighting checks going on in preparation for a big show. I walked up into North Central and around the old 4 Corners centre at 5th and Elphinstone the building was open and full of young people preparing decorations. I had the feeling they were going to be going to our event. My old friend was there and I said hi to him for a minute. I walked back the 9 blocks to the main drag and in the parking lot of the auto parts store was a wagon with some big trick wheels about 4' tall sitting in it. In front of that a couple of young men had a tent set up as they were allowed to camp overnight until their parts arrived. When I walked past a big friendly German Shepherd ran out of the tent and started following me, so I picked up his leash and away we went. It was a nice summer evening, the streets had lots of happy people and nobody was wearing masks. In the next block was a narrow shop with the doors on both ends open. The Shepherd dragged me in through the back of the shop. There was a Chinese lady and her daughter in the front part. A little teacup puppy came flying at us from the front of the shop and I hung onto the Shepherd's tail to try to restrain him but the little dog ran under some furniture. That's when I realised the Shepherd's tail was bare except for a puff at the end like a poodles. The Chinese lady ran back and retrieved her puppy, but she wasn't angry. As I exited the front of the shop she yelled "He's had cancer for 4 years, what about that?" and I shouted back over my shoulder "Sometimes they get over it on their own, and sometimes they don't." I was going to go back to the club, but thought I should try to get those kids' dog back to them, and then I woke up.
I was sorry to see it end; it was way better than the frantic nightmares from going off morphine. It was nice to walk a few miles, even easier than before my injury.

I've been reading this thread for the past 10 minutes or so, it's quite nice reading about other people's dreams. Not the scary ones though.

I have an appointment with a sleep specialist next month to try to sort out my weird nocturnal activities. I shall report back, if what they tell me is reportable! I'm probably going to have to have polysomnography, that thing where they hook you up and video you all night. I suppose I'll need to buy some pjs or they'll go blind

I never thought about that before.

I've had cycling dreams where I can't turn the pedals but if I walked around in real life searching for a working toilet as much as I do in dreams, I'd be dead of exhaustion.

Lots of people think other people's dreams are dull to listen to. If someone is moved to report on a dream they had, they're usually worth paying attention to.

Not mine for sure

But I very rarely remember my dreams, so does that mean that when I do remember, that my "usual" sleep pattern has been disrupted

I copied and texted my dream to my team leader; I think she'll get a kick out of it. Running that place becomes a big part of your life when you've been there a long time.

I was with a friend back in the village where we used to live and we saw a guy breaking in to a shop, around the back. Luckily we saw a motorcycle cop and flagged him down. He went to investigate.

We found a couple of ladders on the ground and, assuming them to belong to the would-be burglar, we picked them up and went away with them, dropping them off at another friend's place.

I spent the rest of the dream - and some waking hours - fretting about how we'd effectively stolen the ladders. Trying to convince myself we helped hinder his crooked activities didn't really work and what if they weren't his anyway?

Default Re: Dreams

Last night's 'mare.

I was back in the part of Bristol where I used to live but I could not get outside of a building. Any building. Properly outside.

I was in a corridor and all the doors leading from it are either blocked off with mattresses and tons of clothing or they only go into a room with no other exit. Finally one door takes me into a block of flats. From the windows on one side I can see allotments and then the open spaces I want to get to. But the exit on the ground floor is the other side of the building and it only gives access to other buildings where I have the same problems.

I'm going building to building, room to room, trying to find a way to get to an open space that's more than a courtyard between buildings. Occasionally there's a balcony facing the same way as the open spaces but either no way down, other than a big drop that I'm not going to jump or there's a rickety staircase fit to collapse or a ladder that looks like it will come away from the wall the moment you're on it.

I'm stuck, forever failing to find a way out.

I woke up to pee in the middle of the night, went back to bed and I was stuck in the same damn dream again.

I suppose it's a variation on the can't find a working toilet recurring dream but what am I looking for or trying to escape from IRL, which would be the likely question on dream analysis?
