    But I'm not convinced anymore that lactose intolerance is quite as simple as originally thought.
    That doesn't sound like a lactose issue. It sounds more like an allergy and/or a casein intolerance.

    I've had the same issue - when I eat something that is not part of my usual meal plan - something heavy in carbs like pizza or lots of sugar - several desserts out there I sometimes have dreams at night - not usually nightmares but usually very odd and they make little to no sense the next day. I also find I wake up after these meals and dreams not feeling rested at all.

    stop watching "walking dead".
    As I ate the oysters with their strong taste of the sea and their faint metallic taste that the cold white wine washed away, leaving only the sea taste and the succulent texture, and as I drank their cold liquid from each shell and washed it down with the crisp taste of the wine, I lost the empty feeling and began to be happy and to make plans.

    Maybe your out of control bingeing is related to your dream somehow. Maybe there is something inside you so abhorrent you do not want to imagine it so you stuff it down with food and studying but it pops up in your dreams.
    Thanks! I'll definitely find it and purchase it. Personally I've always thought finding hidden meanings and symbols in dreams kind of pointless ? Because you can always relate an event or an object to something in your life, one way or another. That's why I initially thought it might have something to do with some type of disruption in our bodies caused by eating that affects that part of your brain where you dream.

    But that would be dumb, to ignore that what affects our emotions doesn't have consequences on our conscious thoughts too.

    Dreaming is a normal part of sleep. Everyone dreams every night, during REM sleep (rapid eye movement). We cycle through REM sleep a few times each night. However, most people often don't remember their dreams hence they think that they did not dream. However, we dream every night. You can train yourself to remember your dreams better by keeping a dream journal (where you write down any dreams you remember as soon as you wake up--our memory of dreams often fades very quickly upon waking, but writing them down helps cement them) or by buying a device that detects rapid eye movement and wakes you up in the middle of REM sleep. (When you're woken up in the middle of REM sleep, you're more likely to remember your dreams.) The device is not recommended because it obviously disrupts your sleep.

    As for why you had a nightmare when you ate poorly, I have no idea.

But it's not as clear as saying he wants to see his mother dead. Often we dream the opposite of what we most want because what we truly want is so abhorrent to ourselves. That's where he got his ideas for repression and unconscious desires.
