Hope you can get some more decent sleep in tonight. I know what that's like all too well. Let me know if you see any good lottery numbers!

I'm actually surprised you had dreams at all, typocally one will "blackout" after deprivation and not have visual/lucid dreams. However, I have nenn listening to frequeny guided dream meditations, without even being asleep, I visualize geometric shapes, dragons, giant eyes, pyramids with beams out of the top, swirling cubes, etc. It is actually quite nuts. Just hearing several Theta and low frequencies while relaxed, the amount of visuals that come to mind. I'm nearly addicted to it.

Good you could have some sleep. It sure is a trippy ride (Dali used sleep deprivation for inspiration) unfortunately it's not very good for the brain.

I know how sleep deprivation goes. Sorry for you. It does get weird when the hallucinations come ... things you almost see out of the corner of your eye. Creepy.
I hope you get back on your regimen soon.
And I hope the dreams settle down.

I know sleep problems all to well. I have never really been able to sleep that well since I was a kid. As I get older it gets worse and worse. I am lucky to get 1 - 2 hours a sleep a night. No matter what I do or use it doenst help.
I have major back issues with herniated discs that are pinching nerves, maybe that has something to do with it. But even when I am not in pain I still cannot sleep no matter how tired I get.

I've always had really vivid dreams as well. 6 or 7 weeks ago now I had to do a little time in county jail. I had no sleep the nite before because was too nervous seeing the judge without a lawyer. If the guy didn't like me, and really wanted to, I could have done a bit of time, but he was decent. I sat in a chair for almost exactly 24hrs until I was processed into my pod. The hallucinations started just before this. I was looking at the concrete floor that had cracks and speckles where the cement was glazed over slightly. I was seeing geometric shapes, and was convinced a genius had been scribbling complex math equations in layers. It seemed nearly comprehensible, but I couldn't quite focus on any one layer. I considered it could be a hallucination, and asked a couple of inmates in the holding cell, and they confirmed it was all in my head.
Kept my cool the next few days, but didn't sleep a wink until the night after I got out. My system was in some weird alternative mode. I was processing at an insane rate internally, yet in having my blood pressure read twice a day, it was borderline low, which is about 10pts lower than norm for me. I spent a fair amount of time in my bed staring at a glazed over white brick wall, seeing insane visions which were... multi-leveled... while the eyes were open. I've had layered dreams where data is being processed simultaneously in several dreamscapes at once, but never while my eyes were open. It was nuts!
Meth makes not the crazy, sleep deprivation is the devil
