I’ve frequently dream, and sometimes I have trouble telling them apart from reality.
I don’t dream of having the ability to fly, to teleport, or to move certain objects; I never dreamt of having super powers. My dreams always seem really realistic. In essence they’re boring, real life stuff. Sometimes they’re horrible, but it always seems so real. Often I wake up just assuming that what I dreamt was real.
There are many of examples. I can’t tell if they’re real or dreams I’ve had. The dreams are always very vivid and realistic. Nothing bizarre or out-of-this-world happens in them, which makes it harder to discern.
Once I dreamt of having a conversation with my boyfriend on text message. It seemed so real until I woke up and checked my cellphone and found out nothing of the conversations I had with him. Then I realized that the conversation was just a dream.
Recently I also dreamt of my friend (Thim) kissing my friend’s (Des) boyfriend (Kevin). The setting was very realistic. I and my friends were in our boarding house, when I saw Thim and Kevin kissing each other in front of us. I called the attention of one of my friends, Tasha and pointed them then Tasha pointed Des (Kevin’s boyfriend) towards them. Des cried and Kevin saw it so he stopped kissing Thim and went to Des to explain. He said the kiss was just meant for fun. But Des got really mad. I told Kevin to fix that but he just said Des would calm down in just a while. That dream seems so real and I am bothered to tell anyone of them about it the moment I woke up. So I decided to just tell my boyfriend about it.
This has been happening to me for as long as I can remember. It’s always little ordinary things, like whether I remembered to tell [person] about [whatever], or if I picked up something at the shop. Then I go see if I actually bought stuffs or just dreamt I did.
These dreams involve scenarios that are totally possible so sometimes I have an “Oh crap, did this happen or did I dream it?” moment. I find this deeply disturbing. Because how can I tell what is real and what is a dream when they get confused?
The problem, I think, is that I tend to forget those daily-life dreams, and I also don’t remember everything that happens to me with perfect detail - especially when it’s relatively unimportant. So a dream will bubble back up, just boring enough to have been reality a week or two ago, and it takes a moment to separate the two.
Most of these dreams are so mundane that it’s hard to separate them from reality.
