Ok, this may sound a bit stupid, but I have talk to a few of my friends and they have experienced it too. During a dream, do you ever dream that you are dreaming in another dream. And not only just once, but several times over again and again and again, where you fear that you will never wake up because you are in a constant state of sleep. I know that probably tripped you out as it did to me when I wrote it, but I once had this happen to me. The result was a very long sleep and I was constantly trying to awake myself from the constant dreaming occuring in my dream as I dreamt. LOL. Well it was after I had my surgery when I was in the hospital on anesthetics, so I was recovering and that had a viable excuse as I wasnt completely normal. But then a week later I had a relapse of the same event, and as I woke up, it felt as if I had woken up from a terrible nightmare. Has anyone had this experience before? Your thoughts on this?

Yes, I've had that happen, but I thought it was cool. I didn't go that many levels into it though. Just dreaming that I went to sleep and had dream within a dream. I like stuff like that, but I'm weird. The ones I don't like are the false awakenings where you dream that you wake up, and you think you're really awake but you're not and then something impossible happens and you freak out. Good for triggering lucid dreams though, if you can remember to take advantage.

I have had that happen to me several times, and I do take advantage of these instances just that sometimes it has happened so badily that I have had trouble going to bed the next night thinking it will happen again. But yeah, its good experience and I dont mind it once in a while.

Yes, I have dreamed that I was sleeping and dreaming within my dream. It is strange! I don't know how that happens!

no i have never actually experienced it. but i have read it in books. if i would evaluate , i would say that since you had undergone operation, and your body and mind had not fully recovered which is why you were going through strange experiences. fatigue sometimes does that to your brain. u start seeing things which are most pressing on your heart. you might not see a clear picture but just an outline of what you were feeling.
