    The Last Thing Anyone Needs When Stressed...

    it's not necessarily the dreams themselves, I mean, they can get pretty messed up but I'm almost used to that, it's more the feelings in the dreams, like you know the dream is out to get you and show you things you never wanted to see... gee, thanks nature.

    Seems like i am not alone in this. They don't bother me anymore though. Or not often do i get really sucked into them. Only a few times have i woken up that i needed to know where i was and what was around me.
