Confusing dreams with reality.

Every morning I wake up with all my dreams remembered from beginning to end in great detail.

Slowly I am experiencing a total sense of "this is reality" during my dreams.

Last night I remember saying to myself in a dream "this is reality and everything else is a dream". I was totally convinced that I was awake and experiencing reality.

When I woke up, it took me 30 minutes to realise I wasn't dreaming and that this is in fact reality.

Does anyone else get this? Can anyone suggest an explanation for this?



PM me if you want a PDF copy of the ICD-10 or the Mental Health Act 1983/2007. I ALSO HAVE THE DSM-V BOOK and am a pharmacology student.

I have a visual impairment / neurological problems so I need people to type in clear text and no funny fonts. Also excuse any typos, my vision blocks things out.
I have autism and have problems communicating, PMs included.
Just becasue I type well doesn't mean I speak well. I am only part time verbal.

I have experienced this before, and only found out that it was in fact a dream when I spoke to my mum about something I thought had happened, but as she didn't know anything about it, it must have happened in the dream.

I know of something called 'lucid dreaming' I'm not very clear on what it is exactly, but it might be worth having a read about.



I'm fine! Totally fine. I don't know why it's coming out all loud and squeaky, 'cause really, I'm fine!


Who else is fine?!?!?

I think lucid dreaming is the ability to control/guide your dreams whilst you're asleep. But actually training yourself to do that might address the confusion you're experiencing.

I do this occasionally, it got worse when I was on sertraline and mirtazapine, to the point where each day was a big dream and night was a dream and it was all not real but so so real.. can be frightening and confusing.

I'm on sertraline, but I've been on it for a while.

I think this dreaming issue may be due to propranolol as that is lipid-soluble and can cross the blood-brain barrier. In fact, a listed side-effect is bad dreams.

I'm sorry to hear your going through this, it happens to me too but less frequently and is very frustrating and unsettling, so I understand your concern. I hope it eases soon.
