      Dream Recall is Crap!

      I am fairly new to LD (joined in June and have tried to practice faithfully) and I have yet to remember more dreams per night than just one. I have my paper and pen right next to me and by the time I grab it and wake up enough to write in it, my dream memory goes away. I can recall just a sentence or two of the dream. I want to remember more, but I think my insomnia medication is killing my dream journals and the memories to jot my dreams down. Any insight for me? Thanks in advance.

      Seroquil definitely doesn't help.

      I find it useful to have it within distance so I don't even have to struggle to get it, not even get out of bed or search with my hand. Keep your eyes closed as you write.

      Have you tried tossing the meds and take up a gym? or jogging before bed time?

      At the end of a long work day, I would simply run around a lake to wind down.

      I always go for the greatest clarity of mind while studying. I use to run the lake with my shepard, during an ice storm I would come back with ice on my face, but both the dog and I really loved it.

      I actually have tried to go to the gym or go for a walk about 8pm and go to bed between 9-11pm. Not sure how long before bedtime I should exercise, but I'll try it again.

      I found waking during the night few times helps my dream recall. Set alarm after 4-5 hours of sleep, you probably won't remember anything at this point so fall asleep back again and put alarm to wake you after 30m-1h again and then finally fall asleep. Do this only if you don't have hard time falling back to sleep .
      I tend to remember waking after some dreams in morning and when I finally get up I try to recall them. I recall on average 5 dreams per night.
      Also note that you are more likely not to remember your dreams if you really don't want to.

      Moody's been telling me she's been doing it religiously for the past while.

      I forgot to add, after re-reading your PM, high levels of stress can definitely affect your recall as well. Drug store items that are good for your health and your recall are Fish-Oil (Omega-3) and Vitamin B6. Sometimes melatonin before bed can help, especially if you're an insomniac. I would ask your doctor before combining melatonin with your meds though.
