I am real heavy dreamer. Sometimes I wake up angry from something that happened in a dream, and it takes me a few minutes to calm down. Sometimes I have reoccurring dreams and then realize that I'm dreaming. Unfortunately, if I try to manipulate the dream, I wake up. I have dreams where I'm conversing with loved ones who have passed on, but I'm not sad when I wake. I'm not crazy about dreams where I'm back in the Army, but I enjoy dreams where my kids are little again.
I've never ran to the computer when I woke from a dream, but I've forced myself to get up in the middle of the night when I was awake and created a good scene or some dialogue I wanted to remember.
