Now, I can still walk around in my dreams, but it is almost as if I need to sit down every once in a while in the chair. Although, occasionally, instead of walking I almost float around (similar to what KarenFerguson described earlier).

A topic similar to this was done a few months ago. Most everyone who replied said the same thing; Ya almost never need a chair in yer dreams. Very often one's legs are somewhat disabled, and maybe the chair is somewhere in sight, but rarely needed.
Kinda wierd, huh?
Ah. I need to take more time to dig back through the threads and not repeat stuff. Y'all will get bored!
It is interesting. We don't really understand dreams, we just have a lot of theories. According to one theory, anything we perceive during the day can show up in a dream in some form, but I've never seen my wheelchair in a dream, so what does that say?
There are some near-constant elements in my dreams, and there are things that change all the time.
Before they removed the brain tumor that grew in the injury zone, I used to have the bloodiest horror movie dreams: that was the only period when my dreams were constantly the same, constantly horrific.

How do yall feel about walking in your dreams. I like it, its kinda a reminder to how it was b4 ya know like it does not let me forget what its like to be able to stand an walk around
I agree, I like it too. It doesn't make me sad: the dream reality is the dream reality, and I just accept it. When I wake up, I don't feel cheated or anything like that.

I've only had a few vivid walking dreams, anything else where I'm at normal level I can't feel my legs. Its sort of like a floating torso. Very weird to me. -.- The vivid ones I'm usually running pretty hard in and can feel everything. Its weird, but it kind of makes me remember what it might have been like before the accident.
Almost 11 years now and I still float. -shrug-
No seriously, it works.

And I find this interesting....a lot of friends and family have told me, "I dreamed u were WALKING last night, u have always been in your chair any other time i dream of you" I emphasized walking because when they say it they are amazed.
