Nope, I'm still having "things in my ear" dreams ever since I saw The Wrath of Khan. I should really see someone about that.

Nope, my last bad dream was zombie themed. Again. But at least this time I woke up before being killed

Stuff that makes your dick go bad will always occupy the Casey Kasem #1 spot in my dreams.

I have dreams where I become acutely aware I'm not wearing a mask but in the middle of a store with sick mofos all around. I'll start to worry when I have dreams where I am wearing a mask, because then it has gone on so long it has seeped into my subconscious.
 
2020-10-01 12:24:18 PM  
Well yeah. Waking up tied to a bed with a giant plastic tube down my throat and shoved up my peehole, with no idea of who or where I am, and being kept alive by machines in immense pain is pretty nightmarish, tbh.

Want to stop dreaming? Smoke weed. Honestly, it's my favorite side effect of cannabis use. It may take a few days or a few weeks to kick in, but I haven't remembered a dream in years. I go to sleep, then wake up. No recollection of anything in between.

"Dicks go bad" sounds like the companion to "Girls Gone Wild."

Since I started taking a low-dose statin, my dreams have gone into another dimension - very high-resolution, extremely complex plots, totally entertaining, never scary, but here's the weird part, almost all the characters are complete strangers that I seemingly invent out of the blue, like all the way down to noticing the buttons on their jackets and shiat like that. It's a bit disconcerting to think about whether the statin is somehow altering this brain activity.

Nope. Last bad dream was going to the cemetery with my mom to exhume her parents so we could rebury them in unakite coffins. Upon exhumation my grandfather reanimated, so we had to explain he was dead for over 20 yezrs, and please get in the coffin before the nukes reached us. And in the back of my dream mind I wondered why we didn't buy a 3rd coffin for my mom, since she too is dead.

The worst, most messed up part of the dream: Why bury them in unakite? I hate that rock, it's so ugly.

I've got the weirdest and most vivid dreams due to pregnancy, but I've never once had a dream involving the 'rona.

Last night's dream was the ceiling fan in my bedroom exploded and took out a window, and a violent thunderstorm was coming.

/don't have a ceiling fan.

This is weird - that's been an aspect of my dreams as well. Specifically: those early-night, twilight-sleep dreams as I'm drifting off. I feel like the characters always have fully fleshed-out personalities and histories, although I could never articulate them upon waking up. Sometimes I'm not even present in these dreams.

And I'm also on a statin. Although I can't say my dreams, other that aspect, are any more or less vivid than they were in my pre-statin days.

Your sons and daughters will prophesy,

your old men will dream dreams.

There's pretty nothing more boring to me than hearing about someone else's dreams.  Dreams are a personal thing, that have zero interest to others, IMO.

That said, the worst thing about being old and having poor prostrate health, is I now routinely wake to horrible dreams just as my body's way of telling me to get up and pee.

pup.socket: What are these "nightmares" that y'all boast about?


It's the place where we seem to exist that can blame all the problems on one guy. Oh and people reuse condoms because it might help. Oh and they obscure their face so you can not tell if the are a threat.

Sleep is awesome.

Occasionally I will be wearing my 'rona mask in a dream. It's happened a couple times recently.

I have a recurring nightmare where I have to poop and can't find a toilet, and one where I'm back in college and I show up for class for the first time on the last day and try to get the teacher to not fail me.
 
2020-10-01 1:09:26 PM  
The only nightmare I've had this year is when I had the 'rona.  Thought I was being choked only to find out I threw up a little bit and burned my epiglottis.  It takes a while to get that feeling out and the only thing that works is waiting.

The rest of my nights are dreams about partially improbable building architecture.  Oh, and sweet 'rona dreams.
 
2020-10-01 1:10:34 PM  
I don't have COVID in my dreams. Mine are mostly about running around a city that I think is my own home town but really is a city of my mind and life. It's really kind of nice cause I run in to family there that's been long dead and sometimes wake up feeling like I just got done hanging out with them. That'll be nice to carry with me as I get in my elderly years cause I hate waking up these days. Don't even want to imagine how I'll feel down the road.

Some statins, like the one I take, are fat-soluble and some are water-soluble. I'm not sure if either one can more/less easily get into the brain.

Tr0mBoNe: Nope, I'm still having "things in my ear" dreams ever since I saw The Wrath of Khan. I should really see someone about that.


I had that dream.  And woke up with sharp pain and throbbing in my ear, so bad I could barely breathe. I got my wife to drive me to the nearest urgent care, where they said it looked like I had a buildup of wax against my eardrum, and they needed to irrigate it to see if there was an infection.

They flushed out my ear, and a silverfish came out.

I haven't had any Covid specific dreams but I have been having more dreams than normal, and definitely stranger than I'm used to. Longer too.

I did fix one dream issue though... I adopted two cats. After my last cat passed way too young, I had recurring dreams that I found and then lost a cat. Lasted almost a year, and I would be really upset when I woke up. So glad that getting cats helped stop those, but now I have dreams where I have too many cats. Luckily they're not as often.
Yes, I'm obsessed with cats.

Oh man, I wish this worked for me. My husband is more like you, though he does dream occasionally.

Nah. Mine are those infamous "you have a final exam today for a class you've never been to and you don't even know which building on campus you're supposed to take the test in" dreams. Those are fun.

Thesis dreams are worse than class dreams.  Where I'm trying to get my thesis completed, and turn my notes into prose, but can't read my notes because my handwriting was bad.

I now have a version of that dream where I start remembering my current self, and feel increasingly embarrassed to still have not graduated.

Dumb people.

Here is my float explanation while dreaming.
Walking or running is just controlling a fall. They require gravity. Do you have gravity in a dream?

One of those times that I'm glad I don't remember dreams.  With chronic insomnia, I'm not certain that I even dream.  IIRC dreams are a late stage in the sleep cycle and I rarely sleep for more than70-80 minutes at a time.

Beta-blockers can alter your dreams, and not in a good way, so much so that some people have to change their medication. So I see no reason why statins could not also affect your dreams.

Marcos P: I have a recurring nightmare where I have to poop and can't find a toilet,


I've had those, or where the only toilet available looks like the one from Trainspotting.

I did hear that is just your body telling you that you actually need to get up and defecate in rl, and you should be grateful that you cannot find a useable toilet in your dream, because if you do you will shiat in your bed. I have no idea if that is true or not.
 
2020-10-01 7:15:00 PM  
Me, I have what they call "night terrors". This involves screaming so loud as to wake up someone sleeping in the next room. Oddly enough I rarely wake myself up properly and seldom remember what the dream was about.

The ones I do remember, it was not terror but anger and frustration that has me yelling in my sleep, but because I am asleep it sounds like incoherent terrified screaming. This does not result in feeling well rested in the morning. I still absolutely love sleep.

Nothing with corona.
