Last night was odd in that I had a very vivid dream that I guess you'd call it a nightmare. Upon waking at 2:16 AM, I was under a full kip-5 which went to 6-7 before the imitrex injection kicked in.

The dream was rather odd in that when I'm in a cycle the dreams are rather suppressed -- meaning I don't tend to have them or remember them if I do dream. Last night I woke to full awareness that I was having a bad dream.

The dream consisted of dark images, monsters if you will, persuing me through a dark, swampy area. I was being hunted by these demons, but was not afraid of them. I did not want them to catch me for I knew they would most likely kill me, but I was not afraid of them.

Strange, the CH attack woke me just before the chasing demons were about to get to my hiding spot. It was as if I was saved from the dream by the CH attack. I awoke full of sweat from the dream, as if I was breaking a fever.

Perhaps 90% of my CH-attacks are connected with REM-stage sleep. I generally enjoy my dreams and do not consider myself to be problemed by unusual nightmares. The dream last night was odd.

Even more odd is that you brought it up on CHMB at the same time as I was having my bad dream.
