    Slippery.

    As soon as i wake up i have a memory of the dream but it slips through my fingers like sand the harder i try to remember it. I've never known what that means so i just say i don't remember them. It's easier than explaining all that haha....[NP]

    Wish I Could

    There are only three dreams that I have ever really remembered and two of them are basically the same dream only with some changes. I have wanted to remember my dreams for a long time. My roommate says that he hears me crying out in my sleep when he walks past my room, so I know...

    I Wish I Did, Though...

    I rarely ever remember what my dream was about. Scientists say everybody dreams every night/morning/dawn/whatever. I wish I remembered, because it would be interesting to think about what they meant. I have a friend who is a psychologist and she suggested that I repeat to myself...

    Secret Root... Not Illegal Or A Hallucinogen

    I haven't had a dream literally in years. I don't care what scientists say, they are full of it! I have one dream a year, IF I'M LUCKY. I recently took a 100% natural root, that is accepted in my religion, and legally they have to put "Do NOT Consume" on the bag of roots, but I...

    Seems Like

    I'm the only one who forgets their dreams as soon as they wake up. :) Cool! I could've said i don't dream but that wouldn't have been true. Because when i am about to wake up, i know that i'm dreaming but after waking up i entirely forget what i was dreaming about.

    Lost Dreams

    I remember it for the first 15 minutes, and then it slips away, and no matter how hard I try to remember it, it doesn't come back. In fact, the harder I try, the easier it is to forget them. I've considered keeping a dream diary and writing my dreams down as soon as I wake up...
