Dream Question

Post by Seasrmar » Mon Jul 26, 2010 5:21 am

I have a question and I guess it falls under this catergory. I don't know much about Biology and I think some of you may think my question may sound stupid. But I am very curious about this, so please hear me out.

I noticed that most of the time when I dream, and when I come out of it, I usually have to go to the bathroom. Now I have two options, go to the bathroom or just wait it out, close my eyes and go back to bed. Usually if I chose to go the bathroom, when I go back to sleep, I either stop dreaming or dream of something completely different. While if I choose to close my eyes and go back to sleep, the dream before I came out of it, continues on. So my question is, does my walk to the bathroom makes a different in the dreams I have?

In my experience yes. I too have spend a lot of time trying to figure that one out, since I was a kid. lololol
It's almost like an internal clock, trying to wake you up using dreams, like a radio clock uses music, to get you up, so that you should go and pee. Not good to hold in pee, look it up, it may create urinary track bacteria problems.
Try this, it works on some occasions: Hang onto the dream, keep your eyes closed and sort of sleep walk yourself to the bathroom in the dark. Do not think to much about what you are doing or you will loose the dream. Just sleep walk yourself to the toilet and back again. Thinking takes you out of the dream zone. It takes a bit of practice, but eventually you will succeed. Just remember not to think to much, just like in meditation, thinking spoils the zone.
Oh, & try to throw the blankets back down over the warm, fuzzy spot your leaving, so that when you go back to bed, the cold sheets don't wake you up even more.
