Hey all. I've got an odd problem that causes me some stress. I often have memories of very serious things that I can't ascribe to anything. This leaves me in the awkward possition of not knowing weather a memory is false or not, especially in times where I've needed to use the information held in the memory. Some examples: did my friends parent's really get divorced or was that a dream? did my friend really come out to me about his homosexuality, or was that a dream? All of these things seem very probable which adds to the confusion. When I can't find the source of a memory I just assume I dreamt it, but I don't remember waking up and remembering the dream (like I often do). What's going on? Am I going crazy, where did this stuff come from? I guess what I'm looking for are people who experience the same thing, steps I can take to reduce the vividness (ie don't eat cheese just before bed), possible causes (does drinking often leave you with memories that you can't identify?) or things I can try and work on to differentiate between reality and non. I don't smoke pot, or do any other drugs. I drink occasionally. Thanks for any help. CLIFFS: I have weird memories. Are they real or dreams?
