Do you think some dreams are more realistic than others and might be your body's way of alerting you to something and wake up up for that purpose?
For example, when I need to pee I dream about water or using the bathroom. I wake up just in time and make it to the bathroom.
Or like last night I was dreaming I could not breathe, that they were trying to get oxygen in me. I woke up gasping for breath and feeling short of breath. I feel a bit better now but still have tight feeling in my chest. No pain or other symptoms. My allergies are really bad right now so going to take a dose of allergy meds.
So do you think that is what your body does?
If so do you have any examples?
