Tired from dreams. Thursday April 13, 2017

Do you ever wake up in the morning emotionally and or physically fatigued after a complex dream? I am not talking nightmares just long detailed dreams that can mean you feel depressed or angry for no reason other than the dream.

When you are depressed do you dream more than usual, are your dreams different to other moods? Depressed patients recall dreams with more negative mood and emotion than a control group, also depressed people dream about more misfortunes.

A study of bipolar disorder discovered that changes from neutral or negative dreams (as in depression) towards more unusual and unrealistic dreams can predict between depressive and manic moods.

Do you ever wonder if you something really happened or you actually dreamed it?

My dreams can be so real that even when I wake in the morning I need to check that I wasn't rude to a relative. I don't like confrontation so I am always patient and kind to others, but sometimes I dream I spoke my mind and was sarcastic. In the morning I feel really guilty even when I realise it was a dream.

Feeling so weary in the morning when everyone else seems so full of energy and smiling to start the day is so frustrating. It is due to my complicated dreams that often involve physical activities including childbirth, that I would be tired in the morning. However to many others I just look lazy.

Lets have a discussion about dreams so I can understand and learn how moodscopers cope.

Have you noticed your dreams change when you are depressed or manic?

Can you relate to waking up in the morning emotionally and or physically exhausted?

Hi Leah I have v bad night mares when I'm about to start a bad time, really graphic about really unpleasant things. I also get very vivid dreams and had a long spate of getting v confused between what was a dream and what was reality which was quite distressing. The Dr gave me some sedatives but they didn't seem to help so I'm still after a way of helping so your post is great ajdbhopefully will prompt some comments. The bad dreams and vivid ones aren't nice and I hope you find a way to manage them too :) x

Leah Thu, Apr 13th 2017 @ 9:08am

Danielle I feel for you. The bad dreams can be so upsetting. Thanks for your comment. I hope you find some help.

Mary Wednesday Thu, Apr 13th 2017 @ 7:33am

Hmmmm... most of my dreams are not really nightmares, but the kind where I turn up for a meeting without my notes, or dressed in scruffy jogging bottoms and a grubby sweater. A couple of nights ago I dreamt that my friend Raz was driving a trailer of pigs to market (he doesn't drive and he doesn't keep pigs) and I was chasing after him with another pig that needed to go to market too. So, just general anxiety dreams. The insomnia is more of an issue for me. I haven't noticed a difference in the kind of dreams before I change state, just a series of headaches. Oh, I did have a really nice dream once; I met Richard Hammond from Top Gear in a rose garden in the rain. We got on really well and decided to be friends. It was lovely, that dream and I wish it had been real.

Leah Thu, Apr 13th 2017 @ 9:10am

Mary, I cam relate to some of your dreams. I have a series of dreams about exams- going to the wrong exam, being unprepared and heaps of ones about not having handed essays in on time. That study was over 30 years ago when my bipolar meant I was ways having problems. I dont think I have ever had a dream I wish was real. That would be a change. Thanks for your comment.

E Thu, Apr 13th 2017 @ 10:39am

Pigs, driving, Richard Hammond, rose gardens, rain. Have ever thought of therapy? With dreams like those most therapists would pay you to attend.

Leah Thu, Apr 13th 2017 @ 10:57am

E Do you remember your dreams at all? If you read some of the comments you will find others have a similar range of images as Mary does. If I listen to news on radio late at night I tend to dream about people on the news! Thanks for your comment.

Molly Thu, Apr 13th 2017 @ 5:41pm

I thought E was joking maybe? I quite liked the joke, if it was a joke !

Leah Thu, Apr 13th 2017 @ 11:26pm

E I thought your comment was an interesting observation.

Orangeblossom Thu, Apr 13th 2017 @ 7:59am

Hi Leah, I have tried to keep off my devices before bed as I have read that they can disturb your sleep patterns. Currently I am reading a very compelling autobiography by Alexandra Fuller called 'Cocktail Hour under the tree of Forgetfulness' . It is a memoir about her Mum who spent many years in Kenya prior to Independence. I was born & grew up in Nairobi which I don't have fond memories off. The book is full of humour & very compelling. I have problems putting it down at night. Alexander Fuller also wrote ' 'Don't let's go to the dogs tonight' which is on next my list of books to read. I know that this sounds like an advertisement or an extract from Goodreads. Reading a book before bed is one of my coping mechanisms.

Leah Thu, Apr 13th 2017 @ 9:12am

Orangeblossom I think you have good advice.Reading for me before bed is not an option as I am way too tired to concentrate. Thanks for taking time to share your helpful ideas.

Eva Thu, Apr 13th 2017 @ 8:04am

Hi Leah

I read a Human Givens book on dreams, their theory is that dreams fulfil the unfulfilled events / emotional responses from your day in metaphor. So for example if someone was unkind to you, or you recalled a previous event where someone was unkind and you are unable to respond (because it takes you by surprise, or through choice for example because it's not appropriate ) you may then dream of responding to an unkindness in your dream, but because it's a dream the person may be someone else and the event different, but the emotion being fulfilled will be similar.

I like the theory, I can't say that I've always agreed with it, I did start to write down my dreams after I read about it to see if I could get a tally but I was too tired ;)

I dream a lot, I have similar dreams to Mary, trying to collect kittens in a busy market, that kind of thing, lots of plane crashes and missed trains and buses, they get more violent prior to my period with a build up of physical tension that I also experience.

I once had a dream that my favourite cat, whom had died about 6 months previously came to see me and asked for cuddles, which I gave and I could really feel his weight and silky body, I loved that dream.

Leah Thu, Apr 13th 2017 @ 9:14am

Eva Not sure what A Human Givens is, but it sounds interesting. I will test the theory, my dreams are usually not a metaphor. What a sweet dream about your cat but I would wake up very sad knowing it was a dream.

Eva Fri, Apr 14th 2017 @ 7:47am

Hiya Human Givens are an institute of therapy and counselling which has published a number of books and has therapists internationally. I've mentioned their books previously specific to depression and anxiety, they also do one on anger which I have also read. I went to see one of their counsellors to help get over some traumatic incidents and anxiety. Which was really helpful. My dream was sad, but the joy of having him to hold is still with me. I guess enough time has passed now that I am now grateful for the time I had with him rather than regretting his passing so much. Cats can't live forever in real life but he does in my dream.

Leah Fri, Apr 14th 2017 @ 9:29am

Thanks Eva for explaining about human givens

Salt Water Mum Thu, Apr 13th 2017 @ 8:06am

Oh Lean, I hear you! I am the very same. I have extremely vivid dreams. Upsetting ones.

Often, like last night, they can be going well, a pleasant dream, a group of us were abroad in another city, there was an energy, excitement and then something bad happens and it turns dark so quickly, I find one of our group tortured, another missing, I am trying to get help but no one is hearing me, I feel fearful... I am running, to get help, to get away, frightened. I wake up and I feel strange. I am worried about them for a start, I am freaked by the violence of the torture, I feel apprehensive. Deep breaths...

It's a strange and difficult way to start a day - almost like 'I need a rest after that' ! I often wonder do others feel like this? I do believe mine are anxiety dreams.

Often people say 'I don't dream at all' but I have a theory that we all dream but some of us remember ours in more details. Perhaps we recall the worst and the best? The dreams which affect our psyche the most?


Leah Thu, Apr 13th 2017 @ 9:17am

Salt Water Mum Thanks for your reply. I can relate to needing a rest after that!! Research says we all dream but as you say most dont remember them. My dear departed mum insisted she never dreamt. I recall rely silly ones and I try writing them down but often my morning I have forgotten them.

Paula Thu, Apr 13th 2017 @ 8:15am

Hello Leah

Your post hit a real true note with me. I don't wish the Dream thing on anyone, but I feel assured that I am not alone with this!

I too get sporadic bouts of dreaming about this and that - many of the things others describe, including many random anxieties such as I'd gained massive amounts of weight overnight and how depressed I felt about it (I've lost 60lbs twice in my life & it's always been a struggle for me, maybe that's the thing in the back of my mind?); I took the wrong road to work and it was so late I didn't know how to get there on time; I told my mother some home truths about how I really feel; I was married to someone I really don't like and feel totally distraught about the whole thing. I wake often not knowing 100% if it was real or not!

It is exhausting and like you, I can feel very emotional for hours after waking, feeling really disgruntled about why I feel like this about something that didn't actually happen.


Leah Thu, Apr 13th 2017 @ 10:13am

Paula Oh dear we may need a dreams anonymous. I think I am so emotionally invested in my dreams that even though I am reassured on waking that it did not happen , I am still exhausted and take. While toget back to a normal mood Thanks for your reply. I hope we get some answers here.

The Gardener Thu, Apr 13th 2017 @ 8:17am

Mary, I could 'ditto' your kind of dreams. Often like your friend Raz, people doing weird things in weird places. The ones I remember are always 'panic' dreams - and I would think always (already the mind HAS to be suspect on dreams which can tie up with imagination. Big parties, major events inspire panic about what I have NOT done - mostly forgetting to order food - beds not made - 'waking' nightmares (when big parties were in the garden and not shelter) were 'would it rain'. The most terrifying, when I was depressed, were not 'dreams' but 'images' on the verge of sleep, seemingly on the inside of my eyelids - nearly always blue - hobgoblins, horrific animals, always threatening - I would have to get up and try to wake thoroughly to get. I told Mr G eventually, he comforted me but could not imagine such a thing. Later, I would occasionally get glorious images - mostly blue again, and often of iridescent butterflies (an absolute passion). I dream of crazy journeys, and, oddly, having to climb through difficult passage-ways, even roof spaces - not good as I am pretty claustrophobic. The 'food' panic has had lasting effects - one grand-son coming for 3 days, out to lunch on Sunday, I shall buy too much food. But, as last night I was down to two eggs and out-of-date puddings bought for Mr G - perhaps panic is the word.

Leah Thu, Apr 13th 2017 @ 10:16am

Gardener Thanks for the distinction between dreams and images. I like the butterflies image. I hope the pantry gets filled and you enjoy your grandson's visit.

the room above the garage Thu, Apr 13th 2017 @ 8:33am

I wake thoroughly exhausted everyday regardless how long I slept, perhaps I have vivid dreams and don't remember them. Do you meditate Leah? I wondered if giving your brain some processing time during your wakeful hours would help. Love ratg x.

Leah Thu, Apr 13th 2017 @ 10:18am

Ratg Thanks for your reply. I have tried meditation, mindfulness,soothing herbal tea, lavender on my pillow, soothing music, declutter bedroom not Tv etc hours before bed time, bamboo pillows and much more. I am always open to a suggestion I have not tried.

Eva Fri, Apr 14th 2017 @ 7:56am

Hiya ratg, have you tried sleeping in 1.5hr segments? Apparently sleep is made up of multiples of these cycles of sleep with light sleep either end and a deep sleep section in the middle. So to get a good night you might want 5 x 1.5hrs (7.5hrs). there is a site that can calculate the time to set your alarm for so that it wakes you as you are coming out of a 1.5hr segment and this means that you are not coming out of a deep sleep. I've been using this for a while and I'm not experiencing that awful heaviness as much, and I do think it's due to waking up at the right time in my sleep cycle.

Leah Fri, Apr 14th 2017 @ 10:08am

Thanks for the information Eva about sleep cycles. I wake up about every 1.5 hrs to 2hrs most nights anyway but I dint get back to sleep quickly and Inever have a deep sleep. I know this was from ratg but I found it interesting. Thanks

Eva Sat, Apr 15th 2017 @ 7:29am

Hi Leah, if I wake up in the night now, I have wave sounds playing and I also listen to a sleep story on my calm app. That usually does it for me these days, but it does depend on how I wake up, if it's naturally at the end of a cycle I'll get back to sleep pretty quickly before the end of the story. If it's because of shouting in the street it takes a lot longer.

Leah Sun, Apr 16th 2017 @ 1:59am

Eva Thanks so much for what works for you. I can barely text on my phone am not up to apps yet!

Jul Thu, Apr 13th 2017 @ 8:34am

Hello Leah. I usually wake up feeling emotionally and physically exhausted. That's insomnia for you. Last night I dreamt I was in a plane crash (we are flying home on Saturday so I guess that is the underlying anxiety) My dreams are anxiety related.I know that for sure.I think when you sleep deeply and have good quality sleep, you don't remember your dreams so much. My dreams and night times seem an extension of my waking hours! Great subject for a blog Leah. Jul xx

Leah Thu, Apr 13th 2017 @ 10:20am

Jul, Thanks Jul I suppose many dreams have an anxiety factor or something we worry about during the day.

The Gardener Thu, Apr 13th 2017 @ 8:37am

Leah - this reply is erratic. I am battling with repeat of above - panic - will I cope - 3 lists already lost under paper-work - losing things - re-read a blog I wrote 2 years ago on 'Job Description' and the incredible range of replies. It was a dash of cold water on my current mood - stop mucking about and get on with it. First puzzle - where I DID put the car? Space in front of house reserved for workmen - market filled town centre yesterday, remote control key won't work round corners. Help, in fact.

Leah Thu, Apr 13th 2017 @ 10:53am

Gardener can you stop and smell your flower? All the best .

A.J. Thu, Apr 13th 2017 @ 8:39am

As a start point for a discussion on dreams can I suggest a book from the mid-80s called, "Landscapes of the Night" by Christopher Evans. In particular, the concept that dreams are the brain's filing system, creating pathways for memories from the experiences of the day.

Leah Thu, Apr 13th 2017 @ 10:21am

Thanks AJ I will look for that book. I have read that we dream about things that we dont process during the day. So the brain does file away our concerns. Thanks for your reply.

Angela Thu, Apr 13th 2017 @ 8:39am

I have recurring dreams about driving, either I'm 'driving' but am sat too far back to control the car. Or i drive to places and panic that i might be arrested for driving without a license ( I stopped driving 7 years ago as i couldn't cope with the stress )

Leah Thu, Apr 13th 2017 @ 10:23am

Angela, I have a dream about driving and it is always panic inducing. I was once in a little red car and I know I can't drive-even in my dream so Take car off the road and carry it.Most driving ones are far worse. I have never had a license. Thanks Angela for sharing your thoughts.

Nikki Thu, Apr 13th 2017 @ 9:36am

I have 5 dreams that I have EVERY night. Always had them as long as I remember. Always other dreams too. I dream all night prolifically and remember everything. Every detail. Even smells and photos and faces. Often wondered why! I do t feel I ever get into that very deep sleep.

Leah Thu, Apr 13th 2017 @ 10:25am

Nikki that is so fascinating. Do you wake up refreshed or tired. I dont always recall my dreams just part of them.

Jane SG Thu, Apr 13th 2017 @ 6:30pm

The same 5 dreams every night Nikki? That is really fascinating

Leah Thu, Apr 13th 2017 @ 11:28pm

Nikki Have you written down your 5 dreams?

Fiona Thu, Apr 13th 2017 @ 10:06am

I can really relate to your post. I wake exhausted every morning. I'm aware that I've been dreaming all night. I wake quite frequently during the night as well and sometimes barely get any sleep.I often have an accompanying headache on waking and I feel my brain has been working very hard all night. My thoughts seem to be speeded up when I awake from dreaming. I don't feel I get any of the deep restorative sleep that's so essential. I wish there was some remedy, I just want a rest from my own head!

Leah Thu, Apr 13th 2017 @ 10:28am

Fiona I really relate to your reply. My head hurst in the morning and brain overworks, As I said in my reply to Ratg I have tried a range of ideas and am prepared to rly more. If anyone has a suggestion that worked for them please let us know. I think I am so emotional because I never get my deep sleep.. Thanks for your reply.

E Thu, Apr 13th 2017 @ 10:56am


Generally I am not a great fan of Papa Freud. As some wag once said "Freud's work is both good and original. Unfortunately the good parts are not original and the original parts are not very good." That said Freud did say that dreams are the royal road to the unconscious and as such represent repressed wish fulfilment. So perhaps you should stop trying to please everyone all the time and say some of the things you ownly dream of saying. You never know you might feel better as a result.

Leah Thu, Apr 13th 2017 @ 11:01am

Thanks E for your reply. THat example of being rude was just one of countless dreams so my unconscious must be full! I have told some people how I feel but it never ends well. Thanks for your help.

Molly Thu, Apr 13th 2017 @ 5:44pm

Oh Perhaps E wasn't joking previously !!

Molly Thu, Apr 13th 2017 @ 7:02pm

I have lost people in my life for speaking my mind. I cannot help myself, so I think it is a great gift to be able to keep your mouth shut and rise above it, or if things do really need to be said, they need to be said very carefully.... E - there is nothing wrong with wanting to please people, it makes one far more popular at the end of the day and if Leah's dreams about confrontation make her feel guilty then why would she want to do it in real life?

Leah Thu, Apr 13th 2017 @ 10:57pm

Molly Thanks for your reply. I have also offended people in my past for speaking without thinking especially when I was manicso now I try not to. I am not sure that people pleasing makes me popular as I have never ever been popular in my life!!! I am always interested in others opinions on my blogs. E was being helpful and giving me her comment. Thanks Molly

Jane SG Fri, Apr 14th 2017 @ 8:43am

I'm also a people pleaser and I wouldn't consider myself as popular. In fact I allow myself to be taken for granted, something I'm working on x

Molly Sat, Apr 15th 2017 @ 1:09am

Ok, we cannot win then, whatever we are. I guess the people that matter will be there and the ones that don't matter won't be.

Sally Thu, Apr 13th 2017 @ 11:39am

Only yesterday, I had an appalling dream. I was trapped, shamefaced, things whirling, no way out, horrible. But then,in real life, I've had a nasty sickness bug, so maybe bound up with the fever?
Dreams do tell you things, interpreted correctly. The mind is processing feelings and actions, but it all seems to get skewed up in a dream. I sometimes have panic dreams, failed-to-plan dreams, and am so relieved when I realise they are not real!
You say to others, you just look lazy. Is that your interpretation, though? Being kind to people also means to yourself. A big dose of support sent your way for self love, Leah. Put that carton of self criticism down as it must be draining you. Who nearest to you gives you the positive strokes of reassurance ? See more of them. Virtual hugs, Leah.

Leah Thu, Apr 13th 2017 @ 11:05pm

Sally Thanks for your kind words and concern. I get lots of positive reassurance and I am trying to be kind to myself. That is interesting to see a link between your appalling dream and your nasty bug.

The Gardener Thu, Apr 13th 2017 @ 12:30pm

Just an observation - dreams, Freud, subconscious etc. It's quite well known that people coming out of anaesthetics say all sorts of things quite unlike their 'normal' selves. So much so that if one should be in that situation you feel like taking a lawyer in with you. Mr G, in the later stages of Alzheimers is saying things to me I've never heard him say in his life - reverted to the language he would used at college? And, on my 'visions' I can't remember, at this distance, if they were allied to depression. Our doctor is very strict about taking much of any Vallium derivative drug as they stay in the blood stream. Could these 'mind pictures' not 'dreams' be drug related? Anybody had the same experience?

Leah Thu, Apr 13th 2017 @ 11:08pm

Gardener That is a fascinating question about mind pictures and rungs but I have no answers. Thanks for continuing the conversation.

Maria Thu, Apr 13th 2017 @ 3:04pm

Hi Leah, I can spend a whole night dreaming a very anxious or frightful dream. It's often related to something I've seen or heard but not always. My problem is that I can't break the cycle. The dream will wake me up, and when I finally fall back to sleep I'm right back into the dream. I'll get up feeling exhausted and often with a headache. Sorry that I don't have any advice to offer you...

Leah Thu, Apr 13th 2017 @ 11:10pm

Maria Thanks for sharing your experiences with me. It is interesting how you wake up and go back to same dream,when I wake up and go to another dream

Gar in the States Thu, Apr 13th 2017 @ 3:10pm

Dear Leah and fellow Moodscopers, It is quite upsetting for me and the vivid dream scenario. ......oh how many times I've awoke and thoroughly believed my dream was in fact reality.
The many quarrels I have had with siblings believing my dream had actually occurred.
Thank you for today's post. .......and all the while it felt as though "I was the only one" to suffer this sort of dilemma.
Although my relationship with those whom I love is somewhat scarred, it is my hope that I may be forgiven.


Jane SG Thu, Apr 13th 2017 @ 6:30pm

Oh Gar, how distressing for you. Sometimes I find it very difficult to work out whether a dream was real or not but I haven't fallen out with anyone over a dream - not yet!! I feel that if your siblings read this maybe they would find some understanding and forgive

Leah Thu, Apr 13th 2017 @ 11:15pm

Gar, Thanks for your reply . I am sad that your dreams have caused these problems with your siblings, though I can relate to thinking a dream is true. I am reassured that I am not alone in having these dreams but that doesn't make it any easier for us. I hope your siblings can forgive you when they fully understand what happened.

Leah Thu, Apr 13th 2017 @ 11:16pm

Jane That was so caring of you to be concerned for Gar.

Molly Thu, Apr 13th 2017 @ 5:57pm

Hi Leah. Spooky, as again I was only talking about this subject last night. I dream alot, what a subject, could run and run. I try to analyse my dreams, if I remember them, often they do make some sort of sense, in a round about way, other times they make no sense at all. I have a recurring dream where I am trying to catch a train and everything is getting in my way to get there, it is at the same station every time, which I do not recognise. The train is almost unreachable and all these people are standing on the platform shaking their heads, as if to say, "you will never make it". The dream always ends so I never know if I get on the train or not. Maybe one day I will actually get on it !! That would be an achievement !! Don't laugh but last night I dreamt I was married to George Michael. He wasn't actually in my dream but I was telling everyone I was married to him and no-one believed me - where did that come from ?? I woke up screaming "he is still alive!!" (sorry made that last bit up, didn't really wake up screaming but I was married to him in my dream, and it felt so REAL). But what a complex brain we have !! Quite scary really. Thanks for the post Leah, I want to write and write on this subject but I think that is enough for now !! xx

Leah Thu, Apr 13th 2017 @ 11:24pm

Molly Thanks for your detailed comment. I have transport dreams but I am always on the wrong bus or train, or have no passport for overseas travel, or the next bus is too long to wait and I will miss my appointment. Having famous people in a dream is interesting- sometimes as I mentioned before it maybe because it heard it o the radio but sometimes they re people I have never thought of for ages. I can usually make up some meaning for others dreams and my own but just for fun.

Molly Fri, Apr 14th 2017 @ 4:31am

I don't make up things from my dreams just for fun. I actually find my dreams very disturbing but wanted to put a bit of humour into the conversation. It seems we cannot win as yesterday's post was telling us to keep our humour and I was hoping I might have raised a smile but obviously failed. I hate my dreams, they define me at times, so I will be more serious in future. And hope I did not offend E

Leah Fri, Apr 14th 2017 @ 5:33am

Molly so if confused you. I meant I can find meaning in others dreams . Sometimes I find meaning in my own dreams for fun. I am now worried I have upset you unintentionally. I do confuse people a lot. I know how dreams are very disturbing which is why I wrote this blog. Hope I have explained myself and not confused you more! Please be yourself, I find your comments so refreshingly honest and they do make me smile. I probably should not have said my comment at the end, as it didn't suit the rest. Sometimes I get carried away with my words in speaking and writing. Knowing when to stop has never been one of my strengths!!

Leah Fri, Apr 14th 2017 @ 5:34am

oh dear, first line should read Molly sorry. Not having much luck here!

Molly Sat, Apr 15th 2017 @ 1:14am

No wories Leah, you just caught me at a bad time. Like you, I get carried away with words. I have actually been worrying about my comment so all is okay. I suppose I was being a bit paranoid there. Thank you for your kind comments xx

Leah Sat, Apr 15th 2017 @ 1:35am

Molly. Thanks for caring. I had a bad day yesterday and was over sensitive. You were not paranoid at all. I think you like me, are aware of our way with words, and are sensitive. I think it is so easy to miscommunicate because of the medium. I use lots of hand gestures and vocal variety in real life so easy to get my meaning. My daughter has told me I have a tonal problem at times so maybe the problem is me!! I do appreciate your comments and blogs. People say be yourself then we worry if we have upset someone- not sure what the answer is. I am writing a blog about trying to learn self acceptance but as you can see have a long way to go. See what I mean by being carried away with words!! Take care

Molly Sat, Apr 15th 2017 @ 2:37am

Thanks Leah, I think you just need to be true to yourself and say what you feel, I will look forward to your next blog. I submitted a blog and then asked Moodscope not to publish it. Absolutely agree with you, perhaps we just worry too much. Thank you for responding to me, means alot xx

Leah Sat, Apr 15th 2017 @ 4:11am

Thanks Molly, I always find your blogs make me think. Do you think you may feel ok to publish later? Being true to yourself can be tricky. Hope your dreams settle down.xx

Molly Sat, Apr 15th 2017 @ 7:05pm

Maybe I will Leah, I always doubt myself. It was one of those blogs that made me look like I was feeling sorry for myself, and when I started feeling differently, I felt dubious about it. Probably silly but I will have a think and either re submit it or write another ! Thanks for your support xx

Leah Sun, Apr 16th 2017 @ 2:01am

Molly, I doubt all my blogs and if I didn't send the off I would delete them all!! I have a pile of ones I have never sent. You know what works for you, something I am still working on!xx

Jane SG Thu, Apr 13th 2017 @ 6:31pm

Hi Leah, thanks for the interesting blog. Have you found some answers? Xxx

Leah Thu, Apr 13th 2017 @ 11:25pm

Thanks Jane. I have been interested to so many people have similar dreams so I dont feel so alone. Maybe no answers but more questions

Jane SG Fri, Apr 14th 2017 @ 8:44am

It must help not to feel so alone with it. Xxx

Molly Sat, Apr 15th 2017 @ 1:19am

Hi Jane, I am sure it helps with kind comments on any posts. Feel a bit bad that I made Leah's post a bit controversial but she had an amazing response to her post. Hope we can all stick together xx

Leah Sat, Apr 15th 2017 @ 1:43am

Molly You are so kind and thoughtful to others, I am fine. I also feel sometimes my Aussie directness and self deprecating humour can be misunderstood. Ok to be honest some people here don't get my humour either!! Definitely we all stick together and help each other, that's what moodscope is all about. We also can't always agree but we always respect each other and are kind. xx

Molly Sat, Apr 15th 2017 @ 2:38am

Thanks Leah xxxx
