    How do you Dream...?

    When you dream, are you in a chair or not? Are you SCI or AB?

  • #2
    actually this is strange and i swear i'm telling the truth. pre-injury i had strange dreams i was lookin at the world from a strange ground level perspective. post injury i understand that now. but now when i dream, i dream i'm AB and from that perspective. but i still don't walk/run, i kinda float along and i never see my legs. and not once yet have i dreamed of me in my wc.

      Interesting question, as I just had a weird dream last night. (look for my post here about it)
      I still walk in the dreams, although I'm shorter now and really slow.

        Dreams

        In my dreams I have the ability to will myself out of the chair. I walk, run, dance, etc. However, I am constantly aware that someone who knows me as being in the chair will see me and accuse me of being a fraud SCI. I am almost two years post, yet in my drams I have not seen myself in the chair.

            My dreams are mixed. Some dreams I'm walking about as normal, some I can walk, but I still have my chair with me.

            One dream, I was back at school, but I still had to cath and do a bowel program, and I took a shower in a roll-in shower in a shower chair.

              I either don't dream or don't remember them anymore, or rarely, when I wake up. Pre-injury, I vividly remembered each one for at least an hour or two after I woke.

              Oddly enough, I dreamed when I was pretty young that I would die because of a car hitting me. At least I thought I died after that because there was a long blackness. The dream occurred fairly frequently in my younger days and I was injured in a car wreck followed by a coma, none of which I remember.

              Pre-injury dreams I was never in a chair. Now, when I remember them, I am never in a chair.

                In my dreams there is no injury. All is well.
                Wish I could dream more.

                  Never in a wheelchair but occasionally I find myself emptying my leg bag, and from time to time I have to take the medication, which I never do.

                    Most of mine are as A/B, but I sometimes have ones in my chair and I dream a lot at night. Over the past few years (19 post) I've had a few more with my chair than I did within the first few.

                      Years ago I used to have dreams that people were breaking into my house and trying to kill me. In the dream, I had a gun and tried shooting them, but the bullets either bounced off, missed, or just went a few feet and fell to the ground. At that time, the only guns I owned were two .22 rifles, and a .22 revolver.

                      After I bought a .45 pistol, those dreams went away. [img]/forum/images/smilies/biggrin.gif[/img]

                        It varies with me. I've never been able to figure out why.

                          I dont remember most of my dreams, but some of the ones I remember I am kind of moving really slow or have trouble moving all together like there is something goofy with my legs. I dont remember having a wheelchair in any of my dreams.

                            Most of mine are a/b; occasionally I will dream I am in a chair, but only partially paralyzed.

                            Once when I was in ICU I dreamed I was on a vent but learning to walk again. Oddly enough, my dreams are a lot more substantiv4e than my waking memories from the hospital.

                              I'm the same Andy.

                              In my dreams I don't have a wheelchair but I'm kind of aware that something is wrong.
