Eating dreams

on 5/15/13 1:01 am
As a recovering addict I am used to having using dreams. I've been clean over eight and a half years and still have using dreams about 1 every six months. Well last night was something new. I have now moved on to eating dream. I am 9 days post op and dreams last night of gorging myself on mashed potatoes and french fries. The dream was so real I woke up thinking what the hell have I done. Has anyone else dealt with this issue?

Yes! I'm a week post op and have been having some vivid dreams. Some involve food. Like I had a dream about eating Mac and cheese. I thought I actually ate it. Bizarre!

Yup, and I would wake up in a panic that I broke my pouch! They went away though, thank goodness!

I did have them in the beginning, and about 6 months ago had one where I went to Krispy Kreme and got a hot dozen and ate them all!  I woke in a panic because I KNEW that would make me sick..........I can eat 1 donut with no problems, but a dozen?  I'd be passed out from the carb coma!!


Completely normal!  It should go away soon.  Oh, and have you noticed ALL THE FOOD commercials??!!!

I had food dreams in the beginning, that I had eaten all sorts of things I shouldn't or that it was all a dream and I woke up MO again.  Thankfully I never have them anymore.  I rarely think about food at all, refuse to watch the Food Network or look at websites that promote food or recipes, I avoid Pinterest like the plague for this very reason.  My dreams are affected by what I read or watch before I go to sleep, so I try to keep it all good.
