(Pre-Note-I haven't gone insane)
I have been for the past few nights and its quite strange, as I have been in control of myself.
There's also quite a few ways to do it as well if it doesn't come naturally.
Anybody else ever had it?

Yeah, I've experienced it once as well. I could control the dream, at least the starting and ending of it.

There's a number of tutorials of how to have them on this forum here which I am not a member of.
(Change the hxxp to http when it gives you a page not found error, some of the content on the rest of the forum may not be suitable for younger people.)

I take some pretty heavy medications that induce REM sleep patterns in me (I have very extreme, chronic insomnia) , and that allows me to take control of every aspect of my dreams, and not to mention it's like taking LSD, my dreams are extremely screwed up, and most of the time pretty violent, but so, very interesting.

You will find that you can control your dreams alot easier if you're very tired, just after you pass the over-tired stage, this induces strong REM patterns, and you will find that you will remember your dreams very strongly, and they're usually the last thing you're thinking about before you nod off.

While we're at dreams and taking control over them, I thought I'd point out two very weird details about my dreams...

First: I don't suffer from insomnia actually, but my sleep is often intermittent and of inferior "quality" and I usually don't dream at all. But sometimes, when I have slept very badly or even laid awaken at night, I fall into a very deep sleep towards the morning hours, just before (30-60mins) I have to get up, and I am very likely to experience violent nightmares then. But only then. Weird...

Second: I'm a highly sensitive person and if I experience trouble at school or wherever, this is likely to follow me into my dreams, where it's being focussed on. And these dreams (you can call them nightmares as well) are often so intensive they have a great effect on me, they've led to several mental breakdowns in the past...

Thats not nice at all, and sometimes reality has come into my normal dreams but nowhere near to the extent you mentioned.

On another subject as well, has anyone ever experienced sleep paralysis?
Apparently its where you are awake but unable to move (hence the paralysis) and you hallucinate that someone comes in and puts massive pressure on your chest sometimes to the point of damaging your health?
I've never had it but was wondering if anyone here has.
I also am most likely to have my (lucid) dreams late on from 5-7am.

Some nights I don't sleep. I get up at the normal time, and I can continue on no problem. But the next night I'm out cold and I have weird dreams. They usually included me eating stuff lol
