    Default Lupus has caught up with me in my dreams.

    I posted this on a facebook group so apologies for those that have already read it.

    I know this sounds really silly, but when I dream I never have lupus. I am healthy, I can walk and run and climb and I don't feel limited by anything...I feel free, and pain free. Well, last night, for the first time ever, I had lupus in my dream. I was shopping with my mum (who I haven't seen since I got as ill as I am because I live overseas) and she was walking off ahead happy-as-larry and I was struggling to keep up. I kept shouting after her but off she went! My legs felt like they do in real life - heavy and painful and swollen. My mum is lovely person and I know she'd never do that. But I woke up genuinely upset that lupus has managed to catch up with me in my dreams. The only place where lupus never bothered me.

    Feeling very down about lupus today.

    I get those dreams too, obviously the the healthy me dreams but I do get those sad ones too. Mostly I get really freaky dreams that makes no sense.

    I *always* dreamt that I couldn't run or move in my dreams. Someone once told me (grandma??) that it's because when you're sleeping deeply, your body is naturally "paralyzed", and you can't move, so when you're dreaming and trying to move and can't, it usually means that you'd be trying to disturb your sleep. Make sense? My grandma could explain it way better, if she were here...

    You were probably overtired that night. I have those types of dreams when I overdo too much.

    Big hug and good thoughts for you

    What jmail's grandma said, makes sense.
    I dream often, that I am in a wheelchair and I can't walk or move my legs. Thanks to Ambien, I am sleeping deep.

    I may have been dealt a bad hand, but at least I'm still playing with a full deck. ( most of the time anyway).
