I don't remember any dreams where I was diabetic, but this is probably because most of my dreams do not really reflect my concscious world and sometimes I am not myself (or at least not the self that I am when conscious if that makes sense)...as other mentioned too, food (and really many physical concerns) don't really play a part in my dreams that often
yes, i dreamed one time i was kidnapped and started freaking out because i didn't have my insulin. I have dream of checking my blood and waking up relizing i was really low. I am sure we dream of it more then we think. It is so much apart of our daily lives that we have different fears about i don't see how we couldn't, but at the same time it is not as often in my dreams then it is on my mind during the day.
Interesting question. Occasionally my dreams do include some sort of "diabetes" content centering on some facet of living with it, however it's not a regular occurrence. I assume it's perfectly natural as dreams are a way of the subconscious dealing with and filing away our experiences, relationships and emotions and diabetes is part of who I am.
My dreams tend to be disjointed and jump from one theme to another. As for those dreams where "D" doesn't appear I can't say for sure whether I am or not . . . D just doesn't pop up in the stream.
This is interesting alright why some of us do and some do not. It may be just the difference in our personalities, or what's in our minds when we go to bed, or our subconscious thoughts. etc. I've had a lot of wild and weird dreams like most. I know when I was Hypo aware and I was having a Bad low, I would be in a nightmare before someone woke me up. When I was high or normal, I didn't notice any consistancy in types of dreams in either phase. But highs and lows don't count on this topic, I guess . Food was definitely not in 90% of my dreams.
Maybe were not Diabetic. :D Bad joke. Hopefully No Diabetic dreams for you Robyn. xo
Hey dear, great question!! You gave me the opportunity to share a very curious thing ... When I dream I am low, i am actually low. So i wake up, check my sugar and I find out that my dream was kinda "warning"... I see that as a bless, it always happen to me!! In the dream i am in a stressful situation looking for sugar, in a hiking trip, or at work, so... I am into such stressful adrenalin that my body just wakes up, and I am scared, so thats when i check my blood sugar, and really 100% of times Its just the confirmation that the dream was really a warning :)
I am like this to! I dream that I am catering for a large crowd of people and am unable to sit down and eat myself, either because there is too much to do, or people will not let me sit down and eat. I wake up in a sweat and am 99% guaranteed to be hypo or just off it.
In my daughters dream last week she was very concerned about her little bro being kidnapped by bad people. She pursued them and rescued him, and spoke harshly to the kidnappers saying- dont you realize he is diabetic!!! He needs insulin, etc etc!! She REALLY let them have it. That is the first time the beetus has intruded any of our dreams thus far.
