I Can't Tell the Difference Between My Memories and Dreams

They all merge into one. 124 People

    Why?

    My dreams often get mixed in with my real life memories and I have difficulty distinguishing them. Sometimes this also happens with daydreams or fantasies. Which can be problematic if I've imagined how a conversation could have gone and then can't remember if that actually was...

    It's True

    I dream every night so it is easy for me to mix what has actually happened to me with what I dreamed happened to me. It's kinda crazy.

    Here And There

    It's happened a few times in my life that I've wondered if something was a memory or dream. I have based my memories off photos and was told what I thought was happening wasn't happening, so I understand my brain can make up all kinds of crazy things. I'm so fascinated by how...

    De Ja Vu

    I'm always having De Ja Vu. When I do, I think about when this could have happened... and it's usually a dream. It's really weird... and nobody believes me.

    I have many recollections,

    I just don't know where they are from. My childhood is a blur, because it was so confusing. I had meningitis, a severe case that cost temporary amnesia. I still suffer from poor memory. I never what's real.

    Happens all the time.

    My memories feel like dreams. So I'm not sure what is real that much. Not to mention I can't remember most of my life anyways. It doesn't matter though.

    Getting Worse

    I have always had good dream recall, but lately it's been getting worse. I had a dream where my dad told me that I had AIDS, and that he hid the test results to make me happy. I was enraged and began to throw stuff around the house. I woke up and assumed it was a memory and...

    Well maybe not really exactly like that,

    but my memories or what I think is my memories definitely feel like they don't exist or... like they're just dreams. Sometimes my dreams feel like memories, but it's usually just the other way.

    my memories and dreams seem to be juggle up.

    My dreams are too convincing, that it makes me believe in it and keeps it as a past time memory. I don't know what to do. should I take it seriously? :c
