I'm currently sick (fever, pain, etc) and I'm having really strange dreams but strangely realistic, I usually can tell apart a dream from reality, but when I'm sick or extremely tired my dreams a far more realistic and intense.

Let's share some Fever Dreams. I'll start, I recently dream about having a fight a with a person with whom I live, I can't remember the details, but he did something to me so in return I took a laptop from his room, apparently that was really important to me and he got upset, so he wanted to punish me, he and my mother grabbed me, they wanted to "mark" me, I can't remember what exactly was but I think they had a Tattoo machine and basically to make me a mark on my arm, I obviously put resistance and barely managed to escape, now I was hiding on my brother's room, I tried to sleep and the next morning I felt that horrible anxiety feeling, I went outside to try to occupy my mind in something different, I went for a bike ride for my town and found an old friend, and we were having a little chit chat, then I wake up, my head hurt a lot.

>“REM sleep is essential to temperature control, [and] fever suppresses REM,

I found this, that's probably why every time I have a fever dream my head hurts so much.

And the most recent one, apparently I had a reminiscence of a dream I had before about some sort of "game", that memory is probably just 'fabricated' by the dream but I'm not entirely sure, it took place on my childhood house so that makes me believe it could be a real memory, but whatever.

This was the sequel to that dream apparently, it was some sort of RTS game but it took place in real life, the map was my Grandmother's house, and the players were my cousin, some sort of cyborg guy, a guy I barely can remember and I, it seemed pretty much like AoE, but the difference was the technology, apparently it had nanomachines or that kind of cyborg stuff, anyway, what's interesting about this dream is that often people will come to my house, in last dream was a burglar, I was planning to deliver him to the police, so I went to the station, told them, bla bla bla, the game me some money and food for some reason. The same night the burglar approached me and told me how he was betrayed by everyone he knew, I felt sympathy for the guy and gave him the food, in the end I didn't deliver him to the police and he left my house but became a 'friend'.

This time there was this girl who lived in the streets and apparently she was really dangerous, so I went to the station, bla bla bla, the police this time were a bunch of assholes btw, gave me little money and food to bait the girl, I ended up giving the food to other guy, some sort of sultan, and now he suspected I wanted to deliver him to the police, then I woke up and my head was hurting a lot again.

OP here.
Speaking of fever dreams, Hidamari Sketch S1 has a whole Ep. dedicate to this subject. It's pretty good and comfy.

If anyone is interested it's Ep5 from S1. You should be able to get it from nyaa.si or nyaa pantsu.

I haven't fallen down with a fever for some time now but I remember that a lot of my fever dreams usually involve some oddly melancholic themes, but in a sweet sort of way. As far as I remember the last one was about me trying to run away from the world and chase the setting sun or something like that. I usually forget them as soon as I wake up, but a strange feeling of slight tension sticks around for a while still.

Subject says it all!

I had a strange one recently, though most of my dreams aren't at all based in common reality, this one stood out not only because it felt like I was in a situation that could happen (in non-dream standards, mind you), but I was also me at an age of I think around 12-13. It also featured my little sister, around the age of 7 or 8 (her current age).

Basically what happens is that our mother who I can only assume is the last surviving of her family dies, and we were left to go live with our older adoptive sister. This is all assumed, as in this is kind of the context I was feeling while in the dream, why things were happening, why I was there. Our older adoptive sister was an anthropomorphic possum though she didn't dress the same way I believe it was based on the main character from a webcomic called 'habits' or 'clementine' as some call it on vice because she was basically homeless. We walked around a downtown area of a medium sized city as she would drink alcohol and flip off cars that passed us by, edging us on to do so with her. I would, but my little sister wouldn't. Then she bought us slushies, poured alcohol into mine and I got drunk with her while my little sister just drank a normal slushy, after that I woke up.

I liked it, felt like I was having fun in the dream in the innocent way a kid at that age would despite the shitty situation.

I dreamed I was in a magic school, but Jason Ritter was an evil warlock trying to steal everyones powers.

A few days latter I had a dream were I was in the apocalypse, but instead of doing cool stuff I was just prowling from CVS to CVS hoping they had any spare insulin.


I dreamt of eating cream cheese on a bagel tonight. Probably one of my most tame dreams, seeing as my other dreams are either me getting berated or dying. I always end up falling from great heights. It's horrible. I don't even wake up immediately. I fall from a great height, while falling, I think about my fate, and then hit the ground, everything goes black, and I fall asleep, dead.

Before this dream, I was in an elevator and some idiot decided to jump in and out of the elevator. When it closed, the elevator fell with me and other people in it. I was thinking, "please don't break my legs" constantly, and when I fell, I blacked out or died or something. I think by that time, everyone else disappeared, so I was just by myself. It was kind of isolating, but I usually end up alone no matter what.

I think I haven't had a good dream that I can remember in a while.


I got bagels and cream cheese at the store today after seeing this post


Just found this board, so I thought I would post a few dreams from my dream diary. I wrote these as soon as I woke up, so they are not extremely coherent, but very pretty detailed..

- Dreamed I killed the actor for Vera from Mr. Robot by sinking a boat in the kitchen along with an Irish singer (I think it was the guy who sung "its a long way back to recovery"), then while underwater, pushing him into the freezer. Somehow both Vera and the Irish guy got in there and drowned. Went to tell Mom about it, we lived in a house that was different from ours. Sort of like our old house. Felt bad about it. Ran over and opened the freezer. Vera was still alive. Let him out. He was mad but not really as mad as you would think. Then I took a ride on a razor scooter around the neighborhood, which was different. I uprooted two marijuana plants, which looked very much like sunflowers, which were growing in a field of marijuana and then planted them in the basement which for some reason had a bunch of dirt in it. The next day, although I don't remember doing anything between then and the next day, Mom had found out about all the stuff I had done and had left notes.


Second part

Like on the dead body of the irish guy which she had partially cut up so that only his jaw was still sitting in the empty freezer and in the basement where she had uprooted my marijuana plants. The house this time was almost like a big wooden beach house except that the walls of the sitting room were glass and I could see out into a city outside which was probably Baltimore. All the lights were out. One time I walked outside and started talking to this lady for no reason. I asked her if she was Sarah, one of my mom's friends, when she obviously wasn't but she said that was her name. Then she said she was a prostitute and asked me if I wanted her services. I said no. I ran around the house trying to fix the lights and I eventually got them all to work by somehow linking them to the TV remote except that when you changed the channel they all turned off. Finally I see dad. He's dressing himself in a dark blue button up shirt with little white stripes and is acting like he's going somewhere. He asks me if I did all those stupid things yesterday on my own. I say I did. He says that everyone knows there is football tomorrow. Mom scolds me for stealing marijuana that's meant for autistic people. I'm trying to think up a response to this other than "I'm sorry" when I wake up.

What do you guys think of this dream?

A.K.A: Share your blogpost about a nightmare you've had.

Lemme star by talking about mine, which for some reason, always seem to be disjointed for some reason. Had these yesterday.

First nightmare was me having a conversation to this sort of cockroach with human, slanted eyes with a mouth (kind of similar to David Cronenberg's Naked Lunch), about dissecting a human corpse, which was on a tiny table and was only a torso with a couple of organs with it's head and one arm cut off. As i was doing the operation, the cockroach thing kept talking to me about some non-sense i forgot, while blood kept spurting on my hands inside the human corpse's carcass.

Second one was me starting at the bottom of a sterile, white staircase (which i suppose was a hospital?), which had a backdoor of some sort. When i opened it, there was a large city road that had two groups of crowded people in different sides, arguing about some religion thing; one dude that was from the left side of the street, which was somebody i personally knew, started to fight with the other group which was on the right. Hugged him in an attempt to restrain him from getting his shit fucked by the mob of angry people, and pulled him inside the (what i suppose is) hospital's backdoor and locked it. He was lying unconscious on the floor, as i hopelessly tried to wake him up.

I would always get these dreams where I am on a rollercoaster and they start it before I buckle in. It felt so fucking realistic and I hated it. I would get these dreams for MONTHS.

I had a dream about having sex with my uncle's wife, I mean, she's a good person and all, but she's not… very attractive.

the fuck is wrong with me?


Weird that you say “uncle’s wife” as opposed to “aunt”. Did they just get married or something and you don’t see her as that relative?


I had dreams I kept constantly dodging a train that would barely miss me. When I finally got hit, my dream went dark for three seconds. Then I woke up in a nearby hotel.

I didn't feel it, thank goodness. I was anxious for the rest of the day, though.


Sorry I'm always been told that the wife's or husband of my (blood-related) uncles or aunts aren't really related as family, I call her aunt, but that's that.

It probably has to do with the fact of my aunts getting divorced and stuff like that.

I don't remember most of my dreams but i know buying my little pony toys at the store is a recurring theme in my dreams


Its hard to remember exactly but pretty much every dream i have is about things in life going wrong, like failing school and crashing my car. They are very believable until i wake up.


I used to dream a lot of bathrooms one to two years ago and probably still do, just that I don't write down my dreams right now.

I am living with aphantasia and I have zero ability to picture something in my head. The only time I have a chance is when I'm dreaming but its about a 2/10 visualization (1 being absolutely nothing and 10 being very clear). I can pretty much see nothing but the only thing I can play out clearly in my mind when I'm dreaming is character movement from video games. What I mean by that is that I process in my mind video character movement (such as Overwatch) in fights with replays for possible movements outcomes. To be clear I don't actually "see" the characters I just label move speeds on some form of phantom that is recognizable to me but has almost no identifiable characteristics. Also when I do dream of other things I can only feel the emotions of the dream but not see anything. The result is a crap ton of Deja Vu because there is no perquisites besides the flow of emotion I feel. Help

Stuff like that didn't help much. I went from an A student to a D slowly as material got harder. I loved Math and Science because they had the least amount of creativity needed. But when everyone was using techniques to remember equations I was left in the dust.
I feel like I only remember dreams where I have little visual experience but then it's not much that sticks out. Maybe I do remember most of my dreams but because most of the time they are without visuals I can forget them immediately.


:/ are you working now? what do you do if you don't mind


I'm doing grunt work for my Uncle's new business before I go into IT for the United States Navy.


I really feel you OP because I have aphantasia too. Sometimes there's this moment as I'm falling asleep where I'm dreaming but also semi-lucid and it's fucking incredible. To think that there are people who can do this during the day whenever they feel like and can control the images they're seeing is absolutely wild to me. I think people like us probably get way more excited about dreams than the average person.

Interesting… have you ever considered some kind of entheogen or hallucinogen?
There are natural and legal ones that could help with dreams such as:
>Silene Capensis
>Wilde Lettuce
>Sugandi Root
>Calea Zacatechichi
>Holy Basil
>Entada rheedii

I wish you the best of luck anon

Ok, since most of the board is about night time dreaming, let's have a thread about real life dreams and aspirations.

What do you wish to achieve?
How do you plan to reach your goals?
What have you done so far to succeed?
What's keeping you down or what obstacles do you see in your path?

Tell us about your dreams anon, and hopefully we can help each other towards reaching our goals!

(for context I am 18)

>What do you wish to achieve?

I want to meet a nice girl I get along with and become a father while I'm still fairly young. I also truly want to be a good dad and raise my future kid(s) well.

>How do you plan to reach your goals?

Keep on dating fairly regularly, developing myself (for myself) so I will also be able to be a good boyfriend and just get out there more.

Fatherhood: Meet GF, have kids, be patient with the little ones, do my best to raise them right and give them both love and support when they need it.

>What have you done so far to succeed?

Improved myself mentally so I can be a good man and a good father. My mental health has improved greatly over these past few years and I'm looking forward to the future. Other then that I still date and try not to fall to the usual pitfalls of the modern dating world. (Tinder, ghosting, not talking about things long enough etc) I also no longer drink which I think is going to really pay off in the long run.

Sounds really nice anon, but what about getting a degree or a stable job?


I've thought about that too. Currently I am probably going to study business/something in stem. I've got good scores in my standardized exams so I should be able to get in with just those. (I might retake some if I don't get in, and even take a completely new one in another language.)

The stem fields are a bit of a new annexation for me. When I went through my countries version of high school, I was mainly a humanist. Since then I've discovered that I actually really like math. I'm currently teaching myself basic physics.

Stable career is a bit of a mystery for me as of now because I don't have a degree yet, but I trust my ability to get that in order as well.

I want to have my family as a cornerstone in my life, which is why I mention it as a primary dream. Work is more secondary for me, though I don't mean to belittle its importance in living a full life.



I'm >>771 and I just wanted to say that >>798 is not me, I cannot stand Jordan Peterson.


>I want to have my family as a cornerstone in my life, which is why I mention it as a primary dream. Work is more secondary for me
Then you can't have a family. You're obsessed with the idea of impregnating someone but have no idea how you're going to support the result of that. Please don't bring children into this world who will suffer because you cannot support them.

It all started in a cold night, it seemed as if i was looking myself and him talking from above, then suddently i was looking in a closer way.
I dont remember about what we were talking or doing but we were sitting playing and suddently it was more vivid.
We were doing a game to see who will endure coldness for more time while looking straight to the other one's eye.
In that moment i cheated; putting my hands in his neck then his face, he trembled and i won.

Out of the blue, there with us, a girl appeared also playing, and i won again.
While this game with now multiple people and <him>, while my mother watching.
I notice that maybe im just thinking too much and worry about something, im kinda nervous and keeping spinning in a matter. But certainly i dont know in which.
I realized how stunning he looks, that night feels particularly special, and i knew it for a while now.


-"Hey, lets play the last one and then you can go to sleep!" -i said. And without a second intention i continued -I can accompany to your room.

I naively Suggested that, in seconds my mom was looking at me completely on blank! as if i was a pervert. But actually i just wanted to keep talking to <him>, because in that moment it was all so endearing that i wanted just some more minutes to enjoy his company.
When we finished the game, i stand up and we started to walk, very slow and kinda calm.
I notice that actually we are in a very nice garden, a grass labyrinth, and then i can almost feel the scent in the air; is soft and fresh. It feels Like…violets or little blueish color flowers.
I can remember that there were little rooms with night lights full of cristal walls / windows, So all seemed so calm and comfy.
I was in a very good mood and feeling happy.
Then i fell to the floor, very loudly and hard.
<he> smiled and laughed VERY noisy. In that moment i could completely felt how a melted pounding heart would feel.
His eyes were almost closed while the most beautifull laught was playing like if it was your favorite song on the radio. in that moment i just realized i was wearing a dress and a hat.
We kept talking very casual and he mentioned that he wanted to get a haircut, i just said he would look great but i liked the leght he currently had, better.

Then i said;
"lets watch the sky, together"
"have you seen the leonides rain?"

I was visited by death and hell in a dream and as yet I haven't uttered this to a single soul. On recollection hades was very much alive, I witnessed a place of worship filled with parishioners with such goings on that I am still frightened to even give them breath, much less type them out for a lasting record. Frightened not of myself with its recollection , I experienced it and must live with it, but that the reader of such nightmares mighten not be able to contain the story, and that it may well be a curse best kept to myself. Or privilege? Or too personal for others. The blasphemic isn't for everybody after all. Or that this might be its interpretation by others. There is no blasphemy within this domain. Peculiar to visit there, I was not asked if I should like to and was transported there unknowing of the journey I was to take.

How did you know it was hell and not heaven?


File: 1558174468460.jpg (76.06 KB, 399x918, Isis_-_Vienna.jpg.cf.jpg)

A place of great Power
Statues of the Hero Gods
A valley, mountains and spires of flame.
The Goddess guides me.
The Glory of Geburah.


Was it like south park satan or nah


Hell unleashed may be unbearable, as the world clearly is, but what hell comes, when you deny that it is there, and do nothing to wrestle with it? Alone, you are doomed, and you will be consumed. Perhaps, and only perhaps, the wisdom of all of our elders, who we have all learned from in our different lands, may collect and address the problem - it is the only chance for success. Were this dream the herald of a demon, and were you to do nothing to strengthen yourself with wisdom, and attempt to fight it off yourself, you would be consumed, and your most intimate knowledge of the demon would be lost to us, those left to fight it. You must share what you've seen. If it dooms us all, then we were already doomed.

I once had a dream that was really vivid. In it I was in love with a classmate that I hadn't seen in several years. I never spent much time thinking about her back then but did think she was kind of cute I guess.

Waking up from the dream it was like my body had sent out the actual "love-chemicals" that you get when you fall in love with someone for real. For the rest of the day I stalked her on facebook and couldn't stop thinking about how bizarre it all was, that the feeling of love didn't go away after waking up. The feeling did eventually pass towards the end of the day.

Anyone ever had something similar happen to them?


File: 1487943597027.jpg (1.21 MB, 1200x1200, 1487734833254.jpg)

Ugh… Last week I dreamt about getting married with my ex-girlfriend (the only gf I ever had), I don't know why, I don't even like her that much (not even like her anymore), we haven't spoke since we broke, we haven't see each other since then, I don't hate her, but she was a completely slut.
Anyway I felt weird, it wasn't a happy dream, but it wasn't a sad dream either, I was a dream were my ex-girlfriend pushed me to get married, for no reason. I'm pretty sure it doesn't mean anything but I felt kinda awkward after that.

Oh boy, do I ever know this feel. I once dreamed about a girl who I'd never seen before. I don't even remember what she looked like, I just remember the feeling of having her by my side. It made me want to get a gf, but of course I still haven't gotten around to it.


File: 1559437309997.jpg (16.41 KB, 412x367, sad cat.jpg)

yes ;;; usually remember past lovers in idyllic circumstances in dreams… then feel 'off' after waking, sometimes having to fight the urge to get back in touch with them for days

I used to have dreams like this more often, but I'm kind of scared since I havent seen anyone irl in so long, and even my dreams recently have all been about starting some job again…
