  • Dreams

    Do you ever have dreams that your walking? I have had only one dream of me in a chair, but the rest are me walking fine, with a limp in my left leg (which is really tore up right now) and just walking a little slower than others in my dream. In my dreams I know that im walking this way because I was in a wheelchair. This kinda freaks me out making me think walking is possible and wondering if anyone else has these types of dreams.

    This should be studied by some psych person. I've been post over 25 years and have had less than a dozen chair dreams, and i still get up from it.

      I had a walking dream just 3 weeks after my f'd surgery. I actually awoke and thought that my being para'd was the dream and my dream was my awake state. Gawd what a screwed up morn that was. It was the morning they upped my effexor. since then (18 months ago) I've only had 2 more "walking " dreams. They're still freaky.

          I have never had a dream of myself in the chair. In the beginning I just assumed it was because more of my life had been spent walking than riding, but now time has flipped that quite dramatically (17 years walking, 42 years chair) and when I dream I am still walking, although there are the occasional weird dreams where I seem a little stuck in quicksand or mud, but I am still standing!

            I'm pretty sure we've been here before and I think the preponderance of people’s dreams came out as walking ones. I've always been perfectly functional in my dreams, and only once had one that I even was aware that walking differed from the norm for me. Just like I find it telling that my grandmother never seemed to remember I had any problems or ominous diagnoses, I think my dream mind is just revealing its wisdom -- that this is just a temporary state of affairs, trivial to the real things in my life.

              In most my dreams I can walk but never a "normal" walk I always have a limp or walk with crutches something like that. I have some dreams where I am using the wheelchair but can get up and walk also. Its odd

                In some of my dreams about halfway through I realize I've left my chair somewhere and it freaks me out.

                What I find odd is that I have had some dreams of people on here, even some I haven't met, and they aren't in chairs either.
                If you can't handle me at my worst, then you sure as hell don't deserve me at my best.

                    I dream that i'm walking most nights, thats if I get any sleep. But when I do i'm either walking and knowing I shouldn't be or walking and running but with somekind of limp. The funny thing is the chair is always around, like I need it or it's following me, and another one is that I need the toilet and can't find one or get to it because of steps even though i'm walking ha ha.
                    Wish I would get some dreams I was getting some action, but I guess I always wake up just when it starts to get good, sooo damn annoying LOL.
                    I like the dreams of the future better than the history of the past, so one way to get the most out of life is to look at it as an adventure.

                      Yup, thirty years on and I'm always walking in my dreams, I can't remember one where I've been in the chair.

                        I fly more now. Its true, in my dreams its in the back of my mind that Im walking or running on borrowed time. once I dreamed I took a different route, and wasnt hit. another time I dreamed I didnt live when the car hit me. I just got up and walked out into the cold pennsylvania night. left my body on the ground and started walking to california. I figured since I was a spirit, I could walk to cali if I wanted to. I was planning to fly across the arizona desert at night, then I woke. I was glad I wasnt dead, but sad I couldnt really walk back to cali.

                          I have not had one dream yet that I remember where I was paralyzed or in my chair. My nightmares though always involve being trapped, pinned or just made immobile and I'm fighting to move. I do love the freedom I have in my good dreams, flying, running, swimming and everything.

                            My dreams are similar, I'm walking but I find myself worrying thruout the dream that I need to cath and I'm frantically trying to find the bathroom.

                              Mine are the same. I wonder if its ever been studied on why the dreams are like that?! Hopefully our dreams are something we can look forward to soon!!
