I Can Feel Everything In My Dreams

Everything feels like a dream....?

So, I'm 14 I'm homeschooled by my grandma and I'm not that active all the time which I know isn't good but there's nothing really to do at her house besides listening to music or something but when I go outside I feel like it's a dream I'm not balanced sometimes when I feel this way, I feel sorta dizzy? And even when I'm inside its like my vision is zoomed out like things don't seem real kinda like they e far away..I also get blackouts when I stand up but not all the time and like I said I'm not really active and when a run for like 5 min I have to catch my breath an I know that's bad and mg dad gets after me for not exercising alot..but I'm gonna start too. I just want to know why everything feels like a dream.

I can feel, taste, and smell everything in a dream?

Every since taking zoloft, i've been able to smell, taste, and feel everything in a dream. Usually my dreams are scary so I can smell a rotting corpse or taste food or feel a gunshot wound. Obviously i've never had two of those things happen in real life, but they seem so real. Is this possible?

While there is time, lets go out and feel everything, if you hold me I will let you into my dreams.......?

Steve Winwood - The Finer Things

While there is time
Lets go out and feel everything
If you hold me
I will let you into my dream
For time is a river rolling into nowhere
We must live while we can
And well drink our cup of laughter

The finer things keep shining through
The way my soul gets lost in you
The finer things I feel in me
The golden dance life could be

Oh, Ive been sad
And have walked bitter streets alone
And come morning
Theres a good wind to blow me home
So time is a river rolling into nowhere
I will live while I can
I will have my ever after

The finer things keep shining through
The way my soul gets lost in you
The finer things I feel in me
The golden dance life could be

We go so fast, why dont we make it last
Life is glowing inside you and me
Please take my hand, here where I stand
Wont you come out and dance with me
Come see, with me, come see

And lovers try
til they get the best of the night
And come morning
They are tangled up in the light
So time be a river rolling into nowhere
They love while they can
And they think about the night so sweet

The finer things keep shining through
The way my soul gets lost in you
The finer things I feel in me
The golden dance life could be

Why do I feel like I'm in a dream?

What you describe is called “derealization”. It seems to happen to about 5% of the people in the course of their life, and is a dissociative symptom that often indicates a dysfunction in the temporal occipital region of the brain. It can have many possible underlying causes, including lack of sleep, side-effects of medication and drugs, epilepsy, schizophrenia, etc. The experience often passes on its own after a short time, but you describe that you have had it for days, and that it is getting worse.I would recommend to see a neurologist and, depending on the circumstances, get an MRI of your brain done, too. If there are no obvious organic causes, treatment is usually cognitive-behavioral or psychodynamic therapy (to cope with stress and situations in your life that can bring on the condition, and to get in control of the symptoms) and often medication. The same neurotransmitters that are responsible for your fatigue and anxiety are likely involved in the derealization, and many psychiatrists will recommend treatment with Prozac or clonazepam.I hope you feel better soon!By the way, we can never “really” experience reality. Instead, our brain always creates a dream, but during waking, this dream is anchored in and constrained by sensory input. The more your brain believes that its dream captures the structure of the sensory input, the more it marks the dream as “real”. In your current state, this marking does not work properly, so the same things that would normally appear as things in an objective reality to you may now look somewhat distant, or foggy, or like through a strange reflection, or just like ideas. (The good thing is that you are aware of that, and that your perceptions of the world are not mixed with true hallucinations or wild ideations, so you can act coherently.)

Why do my dreams feel so real?

I'll go to sleep, and I'll dream of one thing like using my mind to move stuff or make others happy which I CAN FEEL EVERYTHING BY THE WAY, a simple hand shake, a beautiful kiss, a horrifying nightmare but none if last my brain loves to go from one story to the next. I'll even see others in my dream as clear as day, my dreams are starting to freak me out.........is my mind that creative?

Lucid dreaming is when a sleeper realizes that they are dreaming. Sometimes in a lucid dream, you have control of your dreams, but most of the time you are simply aware that you are dreaming. This can be most comforting if you're having a nightmare!

As far as being able to use your senses while dreaming, this is something some people simply do this. There are people who even consider those of us capable of doing this a bit more psychic than others.

Hypnagogia is something that happens just as your drifting off to sleep. You're basically between being awake and asleep. During this time people may have hallucinations that are visual or auditory. Sometimes, you will also feel paralyzed. These things can be very frightening to the person experiencing them. Luckily, it's harmless and normal - no matter how scary it seems at the time.
