Do you or your kids with autism have a lot of dreams they remember? I was just thinking, there is a lot of stuff that goes on in the mind that isn't possible for anyone else to comprehend. I was having very violent nightmares once, and someone wanted to prescribe something to stop my dreams. The thing is, I have very intense dreams every night, but they can be both good and bad. I can remember vividly sometimes 3-5 very involved dreams in the morning. They don't cause delusions, and I know they weren't real the moment I wake up. But when a person is dreaming, they often think it is real and really go through the experience they are dreaming. Think about it. I am asleep about a third of my life, and during that time I have all kinds of vivid, impossible experiences. If that were to be taken away, I would lose a third of who I am. In my dreams I have crawled through a tunnel and found witches and magic toys, then had a spell cast on my so I would rise and set with the sun and could watch over everything. I have flown. I have played with the puzzles I liked so much, trying to finish them all before I wake up. I have ridden a motorcyle all over the country, and floated down a creek to try and find a canyon. I have even had my own baby, for a few hours. Even though I know those never happened as soon as I wake up, I will always have those experiences to look back on. I wouldn't be me without that. You can never know what goes on in another person's mind, but it is so important to who they are. So always make sure to appreciate those things that your kid knows that no one else can know, because of the special differences he or she has.
