My lifelong depression lifted at first but I ended up having nightmares so vivid I could not sleep. (I actually dreamed I was being chased by a 200 foot tall Jaberwokee...and was told by other participants in my dreams that if I did something in particular I would actually die in real life...nice huh)...(I guess you would call that a lucid nightmare) They were in color and intense and I am actuall ...

Comment:

My mood however has been awesome and positive and i have ne ... Show Full Comment
