Has anyone else noticed anything different with their dreaming?  My dreams have always been 99% problematical i.e. I can't remember where I left the car, can't find the bus to get back to the house I lived in 27 years ago, can't find a loo without a glass door etc.  Recently this hasn't happened.  Some of them are a bit bizarre but I am not in trouble - which makes a nice change!

Haha!  I used to have bathroom dreams too, where I couldn't find one where the door would shut.  Frustrating.

Interesting question, Rusty.  I'll have to pay attention.

Interesting question. I did notice one dream change. Not the content but just remembering dreams.

I used to remember a lot of my dreams. They were often pretty funny . I remember years ago waking myself up laughing because all my friends and I were roller skating holding hands in a big circle. I , also, had the non-compliant bathroom dreams , where, for whatever reason , cleanliness, privacy, etc. it just wasn't convenient to actually use the bathroom. Maybe my body protecting the bed! ;D

I noticed that since I have been on the BTD I haven't remembered my dreams. After switching totally to GTD I noticed that I remembered a dream again. Now I am back to the BTD and will gradually incorporate GTD things. Will keep an eye out for dream things.

I wonder if everybody has non-compliant bathroom dreams of some sort.  That instinctive privacy being violated by somebody walking in on you.....a fear that even we as adults who have grown comfortable with our bodies still haven't completely worked through.

Dairy before bed gives me the wildest craziest, least pleasant dreams. Cheese especially...

Pork chops do that to me.  As I kid I picked up on that.  Once, after I figured out what was causing it, I asked my mom if I could eat something different next time she made pork chops (any other pork cut wouldn't do it).  She looked at me funny and said, "Huh.  Your grandfather couldn't eat pork chops for the same reason.  Gave him nightmares."

I read in my adrenal fatigue book that people with a vitamin B6 deficiency often don't remember their dreams.  That's a tangent, I know, but an interesting one....

Yeah, it is.  My husband remembers exactly one of his dreams since we've been married.  That's insane.  I dream all night long.

"If [the patient has] trouble recalling their dreams, then they often need vitamin B6.  When adequate Vitamin B6 is added as a dietary supplement they usually begin to remember their dreams.  Typically 50 to 100 mg a day is plenty.  If you find that even with 100 mg a day of vitamin B6 you still cannot remember dreams, then you may need a special form of vitamin B6 called Pyridoxyl 5 Phosphate (P5P).  A small percentage of the population has difficulty metabolizing the regular vitamin B6 supplement (pyridoxine HCL)...."  --Adrenal Fatigue: The 21st Century Stress Syndrome

Maybe you need P5P for Mr. Ribbit?

another good reason to sprinkle that NY on your salads! GT permitting of course!  :)

I read once upon a time you usually only remember your dreams if you wake up in the middle of them, or shortly after. I rarely ever remember my dreams (unless I had dairy before bed!) but I assume I regularly dream. Hmmm...

Mr. Ribbit says nutritional yeast is "just wrong.  It's just wrong," and makes faces when I rave about it.  I don't know that he wants to remember his dreams.  "What's the point?" he'd say.

I wouldn't take it just so I could remember my dreams.  I would take it because NOT remembering my dreams is a sign of a deficiency, and there are probably other consequences from not having enough B6 that warrant more concern.
