Dreams are they really so sweet
I would appreciate some help. This might seem like a fun question but what do dreams and nightmares really mean? Could it mean that the sufferer has unresolved psychological issues or medical conditions or both?
Can our medication, pacemakers, health conditions cause bad dreams and nightmares? I know beta blockers which are commonly used may increase the potential for a nightmare. I occasionally get them with Bisoprolol and my doctors tell me that this is because beta blockers can inhibit the nighttime secretion of melatonin, our natural sleep hormone.
My husband’s dreams and nightmares are becoming a real problem for both of us. His dreams are so vivid now that he is actually beginning to believe them. He often asks me why I did something to him when in fact it was a part of his dream. I am keeping diary notes of what his dreams are about so that I can try to help him understand where these thoughts are coming from. Maybe he is unhappy with me, with his life, so many questions come to mind. He has been extremely worried lately about Coronavirus and all the deaths and keeps getting me to take his temperature. His medical history does include strokes/cerebral/ischaemic vascular disease so there might well be a connection. Sometimes we both end up laughing about his dreams and what they might mean and I am reassured that he can remember them and still chooses to discuss them with me, even though I would rather not hear what he gets up to in his sleep.
Anyway if any of you want to share any stories about dreams and nightmares and what they mean and how you were able to reduce their adverse impact on your quality of sleep and activities during the day, I shall be most grateful to receive any tips. Oh for a good night’s sleep
