I've had very obvious symptoms of consistent ME/CFS for several months now, but a new one for me has emerged these last few weeks and it's something I was hoping someone else had experienced. Before my ME/CFS started I could get 9 hours of comfortable sleep each night without an issue, but that slowly decreased to an average of around 7 hours of what I'd describe as disturbed unconsciousness rather than "sleep". Only, for years now, and even more so since I came down with ME/CFS, I've never really had proper dreams. I'd wake up to my girlfriend telling me about her curious stories but could never respond with a tale of my own. Until recently, when I started dreaming twice a week through 8 or 9 hours of disjointed sleep. But something is different this time - my symptoms are creeping into the dreams I'm having. When I find my character running in my dreams, my brain tells my character to stop, or to slow down. My fear of crashes is creeping into my sleep. Does this happen to anybody else? I've heard of people being able to control their dreams based on who features in them and who doesn't, but my brain tells my character to slow down and take a breath whenever they're running, or jumping. I can't be the only one, can I?
