Lower Functioning Dreams
Over the years, I have noticed that I have strange dreams sometimes. Most likely it is a side effect of the medications I take to help me function. Some of them are interesting to consider. I find myself in a familiar environment, such as my old high school, where I need to get somewhere for class. Instead of being the punctual person that I am in reality, I never seem to find my way all by myself. I feel like I am trying to force myself to act, but my body resists me. Recently, I came to the conclusion that I might have lower functioning autism in my dreams. I wonder if those dreams are in fact powerful insight into the autism spectrum through my own subconscious. All I know for certain is that I am relieved when I wake up.
