On the topic of dreams I had a crazy one last night...

A large ship of about 5,000 people just tipped over and I saw them all plummet to their deaths. I was with the girl I liked and I remember thinking about jumping in to save them, but the horror of the sight of the titanic-esque ship going down with all the people in it... well, I was too scared, but was consciously thinking "I wonder if she thinks I'm a coward". I think I ran and called 911 instead. LOL.

Semi on-topic.

yea i get crazy ass dreams all the time, sometimes i feel like i have been in the dream for years, I dunno how you could know that you have DP/DR in your dreams because i am not that conscious in my dreams to understand that, most of the time im just floating from scene to scene i could be having a great time on a roller coaster, then the other second im getting shot at by a bunch of gorrillas who escaped from the zoo

Your subconsciousness knew something was happening and the dream was a sign of it. I don?t think it was because of that dream per se why you?re feeling better, but that was probably not what you ment. When dp was worse I was always dp:d in my dreams too, nowadays I?m much more livelier in my dreams than in the real life. But often I can?t move properly or I?m falling off an airplane or ski lift or something. Interesting, huh?

Funny, just woke up from a dream of full-on DR. Which, considering how dreams feel anyway its a wonder, like Johnny Utah said that you could feel any weirder in them. But its just the fact you know in your dream you are DR'd or DP'd that makes you feel it. I don't normally get DR that badly, if at all, but in my dreams it is much worse, and I have to shake off the feeling when I wake up, by focusing on the waking world.

I've recently started lucid dreaming, which I'm sure is due to the Effexor as most people report vivid dreams as a side effect. Lucid dreaming when you know what you're doing is brilliant. At first it was actually distressing as I'm prone to sleep 'abnormalities' because the way it works usually is that you start realising that you are 'waking' which of course must mean you are asleep. Unfortunately those dreams were nightmares that I had no control over, despite the fact I knew I was asleep, and I could not wake up.

Effexor does some weird things man
Like putting on 21 pounds. gotta love it

I get some scary dreams but I find that sometimes my dreamy state kinda continues throughout the day...like im stuck on daydream mode or somethin'.... I had a dream I used to get when I was younger where I'd be like flyin' down the stairs and I could actually feel myself flyin'....

I might be the only one, but all my life my dreams have seemed pretty DP/DR. I certainly never feel like I do when I'm normally conscious.
