Sooo.. I'm ill I have flu. Last night I was drifting in and out of sleep having very very vivid, strange dreams. I would then wake up confusing my dreams with real life and I just had this strange feeling the whole time, like I didn't know where I was. Does anybody else get this when they are ill, or am I just weird?
If so, why does it happen?
I've had a similar thing, once I remember playing computer games all night non stop and the flu just seemed to overtake me and in my dreams I was going through the same level that I was having trouble beating and I actually thought it was real and as I woke up half asleep I was literally looking for my gun...er even though in the real world I have no gun...
And I have no idea why it happens, I suppose it's similar to lucid dreaming...
Haha, sounds familiar, I kept dreaming about HP, then I woke up and my laptop wasn't there!
yeah had them types of dreams too, I also had a nightmare that I was ginger and when I awoke it came true, that's the last time I eat ginger crunch creams again!!
Sophs! My daughter just joined. No Hubs yet but I am so excited.I had to tell you. I have been after her to join for four weeks telling her about you and others who have befriended me.
Back on topic, yes when you are sick and even at times when you are not sick, it becomes difficult to tell the difference. I had a dream that I was being attacked by a huge spider and when I woke up I jumped because I thought my ceiling fan was the spider! Didn't get back yo sleep that night! So sorry you have the flu, you are too nice to be sick! Get better soon.
Oooooo what's her name, I'll search for her!
Oh yeah I've had a few spider dreams and wasp dreams! Ohhh ant ants! I once had a dream ants were all over my pillow, it was so real though! Lol.
Awwww thanks Faybe, I'll get some lemsip down me!
It's Mysticsmom, but she hasn't set up profile yet. Just joined cuz I'm a nag. I fanned her already, but I've always been a fan of hers. Working on my homework. Get that lemsip (whatever it is ) down you quick. ((hugs))
sorry first link was wrong added right one.
Uh oh, this sounds like the HP addiction flu.. hope you recover (though not completely).
It's perfectly normal relax!
When you have a fever, it is also normal to see things that aren't there (when you're awake)...I'm struggling to remember the medical terminology..ah yes hallucinations.
It's just the bodys way of coping.
One of my daughters used to get waking nightmares when she had a fever. Scarey to watch, but it was only because of the fever. I myself remember a dream from childhood (under the effects of a fever) where I had to go down steps, and the lower I got the more people melted. There were melted bodies everywhere and I was terrified. It was also really really hot in this place, and got hotter the lower I descended.
Now it's nothing to do with Hell and everything to do with being ill..
What! Oh, my dear, you are missing out. Unfortuneately, it is only a seasonal dairy drink. Usually at Christmas time. It is incredibly sweet and incredibly fattening, but oh so good! In fact, I invite you out here to my place in Iowa next Christmas time. We'll have lots of Egg Nogg to go along with lots of caroling. Bring your friend as well.
I am in a small town of 5,500 people. It's quite a rural area. To celebrate your induction into the realm of Egg Nogg I can take you out for a night of cow tipping! I remember doing that thirty years ago. You'll love it! Where are you at in the world?
Haha! What's Cow Tipping? I'm in Sunny England! lol
Well, I can't afford the plane ticket for you, but I hear it's a lovely boat ride if you've got a dingy. Many cows sleep standing up, especially many dairy cows. It used to be common among rural young country kids to sneak into a pasture and push over a cow. Of course, you run the extreme risk of slipping and falling into massive piles of cow droppings but it was an interesting American past time. I remember back in the early 80's after a tipping I ran back to the vehicles. However, before reaching the vehicles I fell in a heap of doo and as a finale ran into the electric fence to the pasture. Nothing massive, just a BIG jolt, but it got my attention.
I cannot picture you as a cow-tipper, but them when you live in Iowa, what else is there to do?
True about Iowa! Cow tipping, obviously, was way before my becoming a minister. That wouldn't look so good now. I've been to most all states in the US but would love to travel abroad at some point. Sometimes I consider my world here in Iowa and want to shout out, "Calgon - take me away!"
Haha yes I have a dingy! Ohhhh you see I don't know about these things being a city girl sounds great fun though! Lol.
Ohhhh Well that was silly! haha
Then I guess we should plan on communicating further, say in November instead of December, in order for you to have adequate time to row the boat across the Atlantic, down around Florida, up the Mississippi River via New Orleans in the which I will pick you up on the Mississippi in Ohio right in the middle of America. The good part about that plan is that you will have adequately built up your arm muscles for our night out of cow tipping.
It's common when you've got a fever, no idea why though, maybe your brains overheating...
When I was a child I would sleep walk when I was sick.
One time I was in the hospital and it was my first night alone because my mom had to work and the nurses found me two floors down. I was 9 years old.
Awwwww bless you Hokey! I have a small cute 9 year old Hokey wandering arround in my head now! Lol
I once walked in my sleep and fell down the stairs I was only 7, we thought I'd broke my nose!!
I did it many times. The neighbors would wake up in the morning and I would be sleeping on the floor of their kitchen.
I went to the corner store and the owner had to call the police because I was in the parking lot curled up.
Lots more stories.....
awww! I bet the nurses looked out for you.
One of my kids sleepwalked too, think it was my first born, the one I mentioned already. She was maybe 5 or 6 years old when she got up in the middle of the night and let herself out of the house, in the middle of winter in her pyjamas, and wandered off up the street.
I awoke hearing her cry (in the distance), and we got her back safely.
How many other kids disappear because a pervert found them first?
And yeah my door was locked but like most people the key was on the inside of the door.
I'm sick too and had an odd dream last night. All I can remember though, is a small child and a woman having a plastic bag mask with eye holes placed over their heads. I also remember stealing a car and a cell phone, then crashing the car while I was texting someone to tell them I was on the run. Dreams are such strange things, and especially scary when they are fever dreams.
The plastic bag big is sooo scary! I wouldn't be able to sleep for about a week! lol. Get well soon!
