My brain is melting

My dreams have been becoming increasingly bizarre. Just the other night I had a dream in which I had a falling out with a friend who said to everyone but me that I had said some very hurtful things. In typical fashion, I confronted this person and simply stated that if you have a problem with me, say it directly to me because that's how things get taken care of. If the root of the supposed problem isn't aware of the supposed problem, a resolution to the supposed problem isn't exactly easy. It's the whole avoiding confrontation thing but I digress.

I can't remember the last time I had a vivid dream but this one seemed extremely real. It seemed so real, in fact, that I screamed in my dream. That part of the dream seemed so real to me that I woke up around 4 AM convinced that I had actually screamed in my sleep. I'm not talking about a muttered mumble but a full-out anger-filled scream because, sadly, it's what I do.

I even considered askign my old lady if I had screamed in the middle of the night. It bothered me so much. It wasn't so much about the dream any more but whether or not I had actually screamed aloud. I figured if I had actually screamed my old lady would have definitely let me know about it, endlessly prodded me about the scream and then proceeded to mock me endlessly about how crazy I'm becoming.

But she said nothing so I said nothing. It just makes life easier that way.

MinnPics is where the last shreds of my sanity are used. Awesome photos from all over Minnesota from people who are surely more sane than me.

I had a dream similar to this not too long ago. I was going off on my Dad and step mom, getting all the things I have to say off my chest at the top of my lungs. I mean, I was yelling.

Then I stormed out, slamming the door behind me.

The pictures on the wall didn't fall to my liking so I came back, opened the door, and slammed it again. This time, everything crashed to the ground.

Dreams are weird...

I hate that feeling - when it's obvious you woke yourself up by making a noise or something.

My fiance tells me that I, in fact, giggle in my sleep. I have also been known to punch, scream, mumble, and clap.

I screamed in a dream once and swore it had to have been out loud too. I also never found out if that was the case. Hmm, mysterious. Probably was not as both our partners would likely have woken up and then woken us up but who knows?

Yeah, I hate disturbing dreams. Sleep tight tonight.

Dreams are from the subconscious so your dream is trying to tell you something. It may not even have to do with that friend...

So I do what I call sleep waking (not sleep walking) because I literally wake myself up from deep dreamland by talking and moving about my the immediate vacinity of my bed. It all seems so real, and when it happens, normally it'll happen 2 or 3 or 4 times that night! So what I'm saying, Babes, is that you probably did scream, but your wife is so used to your strange sleep habits that she sleeps through it by now.
