Illness And Dreams

Happy November everyone. I can't believe it's November already, feels like just yesterday it was last Christmas, in which I gave you my heart, and the very next day, you gave it away. Why would you do that? Anyway, if you follow me on Twitter (not having a Twitter account is no excuse not to) you might be aware I was pretty sick for a few days last week. I don't get sick all that often, besides a cold that never goes away and heartburn which are more likely caused by weight and will hopefully leave me the hell alone, but when I do, it's pretty bad.

I was laid up and asleep most of the time, but every time I woke up, I felt a bit better. As much as I hate sleeping I can't deny the good it can do you, especially when you're ill. I'm the same with baths. I don't really like them much, or water for that matter, but I can't deny they make me feel good, and occasionally smell nice. I've been having more baths since I started exercising more. It's either that or buy some sweat bands.

Anyway (again) while I was sleeping, I had me a weird dream. I don't remember my dreams all that much, but this was one of those times when the real world started affecting my dream. Because it takes me so damn long to get to sleep, I go to sleep listening to music, and I have been doing for as long as I can remember. This has lead to some strange dreams as the music influenced them but by far the weirdest thing that happens very very rarely is when I can hear the music in my dream, and no matter what I do I can't turn it off.

It can sometimes be pretty fun when it happens though, like I said it's incredibly rare. I can't remember too much about the dream, I went on a trip somewhere and came home to find 3 of my nieces at the house. This should have let me know it was a dream, as only two of them are ever there at the most thanks to something that went down not too long back. I love that moment in a dream when you say to yourself "Oh wait, this is a dream". Sadly though I'm yet to be able to take control of my dreams, even after realising it's just a dream.


  1. I love dreaming. I actually look forward to sleeping because my dreams are usually so vivid- and they reveal so much about my hidden desires& what my subconscious is thinking. for example, I saw a cute guy yesterday just for a few seconds, but I had a long and intense dream about him. That's a sign we're meant to be together.
    Nah, I'm kidding. My dreams are usually less lame than that.

  2. Hope you get well soon. I've been borderline sick for the last week or so. My body can't make up its mind.

  3. Hope you feel better! As for controling your dream, I prefer to just lie back and enjoy the show!

  4. I'm a bit sick myself. Dreaming is cool! Once I fell asleep with the tv on. I believe it was on Cinemax at the time because I woke up to tits bouncing on my tv screen. What was going on on tv played into my dream. Needless to say, I was really enjoying my dreams that night!

  5. The intro to this post! It's hilarious. Why indeed?

    I can seldom control my dreams. If I'm aware that I'm dreaming I'm still mostly just along for the ride. But if they take an awesome turn I'm not complaining.

  6. meh, I normally just remember my dreams the 5 minutes after I wake up...:/

  7. Haha! I always have to read for like two hours before I sleep LOL. I'm always really energetic and can never sleep. -.-'
    I really want a lucid dream some day...

  8. know what you mean the older I get the faster time seems to slip past

  9. Keep trying mah boi. One day you'll be able to fly like me. nyah hahahaha

  10. I never remember my dreams :(

  11. You can sleep when you're dead. That's my philosophy

  12. whoah dude, when did you install the infolinks? sorry, those things kinda bug me. Has it been working? I just don't know if the payout would be worth the trouble...

  13. I cannot believe someone else falls asleep to music, I've been doing it for as long as I can remember

  14. I don't like to dream because there's always dead people in my dreams. D:

  15. I rarely dream. D:

  16. @Cricketfreak Haha never doubt the power of dreams. It really could have been that. I'm not fond of my inner workings though.

    @DWei I think you could say that my body is like that. I dance on the edge of illness.

    @Bersercules I've never been able to control my dreams really :( I am feeling better.

    @Danjor21 well that would lead to a pretty good dream lol. It can be amazing how much the outside world can influence us and our dreams.

    @The rambler all of all of my posts are hilarious. I end up sitting back and enjoying the ride too. I love that moment where you just realise to yourself "Hey I'm dreaming". Then nothing special happens lol.

    @Orang3 Same here. Though some dreams this is a blessing lol

    @Chrischaos I have some weird ones at times. Everyone does though.

    @Jodie Ann If i read that means i want to keep staying awake to keep reading :) I'm not too fussed about lucid dreaming really. Probably why i can't do it lol.

    @aamador I won't get older lol. Well, I'll never act older.

    @Dora I am feeling better :) Thanks.

    @Henry LOL I don't really want to lucid dream that much. If I'm not going to remember what happens, not much point in trying to make it happen. For all I know, I fly in my dreams all the time.

    @Heaven I rarely remember, and not for very long even when I do. but I can randomly remember some old dreams.

    @Generally Disgruntled Speak for yourself lol, I'll be living it up in Hell when I'm dead.

    @Lunatic pope I had an adsense scare, which lead to me doing it. It's not working so great, but adsense isn't working too great for me either. I don't know how much detail I can go into without getting banned though lol.

    @Gryt I think it's actually quite common really.

    @my 2 pesos That's kinda eerie. I'd agree with you it's not something you'd really enjoy doing.

    @Interwebs Fails You should be to be having a good nights sleep :/

  17. I have dreams in which I tell myself I'm dreaming all the time, then I dream that I wake up .. then something happens or I see something and I know I'm still asleep.
    Sometimes my alarm goes off and I dream that I get up and leave for work, but then I realise that my road doesn't look right so I have to really wake up.
    Then I'm late lol.

  18. @Dirtycowgirl lol I think that happens to a lot of people. I rarely dream that I've woken up, but damn it's annoying when it happens. I once dreamt that I woke up, and cleaned all the house up, then I woke up properly. The house was still a mess, and I was mad and depressed lol.
