I really enjoy dreaming. In my dreams at night I get to see those I love who have passed away, spend time with them and hold conversations with them I’ve missed. I get to do things I can’t normally do like fly, or breathe under water. I can have time with my husband seeing exotic new places around the world, and I am usually very happy upon waking. I love dreaming.
Since I have been tapering off the Effexor though, I would give anything to skip dreaming. I’ve been having night terrors more frequently and sleeping is becoming more difficult because I know what will happen. The night before last I actually ended up in a lucid dream in between awake and asleep. I have never in my life experienced this before, and it appears to be the new nightly thing for me.
