I finally did what I'd been thinking of doing for a long time. I set my digital recorder to "record" when I went to bed so I could find out if I snore. Man do I snore!!!! I also grunt. I wonder what that's about.
I also wanted to see if there was any indication that I might be suffering from sleep apnea. Unfortunately I'm not real sure what that would sound like. Also, I have a six-hour recording to listen to. So far I've only listened to two hours. I guess I should have thought about that before I recorded myself.
A friend of mine was recently diagnosed with sleep apnea. He said that he was only getting about 1.5 hours of sleep each night. I know I'm getting more than that. Like I said, I've already listened to two hours of the recording. I'll listen to more when I have the time, of course.
I find myself dreaming about submarines a lot. I wonder if this is a Freudian symbol, or something simpler. One online dream dictionary says, "To see a submarine in your dream, indicates that you are cautiously exploring your emotions and examining your unconscious feelings. You still remain guarded about certain emotional issues. Alternatively, the submarine indicates that you need to adapt a different perspective and understanding. You may need to get down to the core of some situation or problem." That works for me. (Whew!)
I really enjoy my dreams. Well, most of them. They're very entertaining. I started blogging about my dreams way back, then realized my mom might read my blog and stopped. (Yes, I'm a wuss.)
