Dear Lauri, 
I had a dream that I was lying in bed, it felt so real that I hadn't realized I fell asleep, but there was a figure on top of me. It looked more like a shadow than a face and it was choking me. I woke up once I stopped breathing. When I awoke however my hand was around my neck but it wasn't tightly gripped. Did I choke myself in my sleep?   - Najah,19 Brooklyn, NY

Dear Lauri,

I dreamed I had a threesome with the standup comic Louis CK and a chick I knew in high school. I remember that he had on a black shirt and we were in a darkened room. The girl I knew from high school is a blond in real life but her hair was black in the dream. She did not say a word. Then Louis CK told my boyfriend, and he was totally ok with it. I like Louis CK’s humor but I don't see him as someone I'd want to hook up with! WTH?  – Shelly 33, Norfolk, VA.

It's that time again when we "fall back," to standard time as Daylight Savings comes to an end.  Mornings and evenings will both be darker for a while now, even the roosters are confused...but perhaps it's time to do like the squirrels and bears; hunker down and hibernate. At the very least, catch a few more zzzs this coming Sunday.

Dear Lauri,

Last night I dreamed I had braces on all my teeth.  I removed all of the braces and half of my teeth came out along with my tongue.  It looked like a creepy science experiment but it all grew back instantly.  The weirdest part was my tongue.  It had all kinds of weird colors and stuff on it, and I put it in a large glass of fruit punch.  So creepy!  Dave, 36  Cleveland, OH

Dear Lauri,

I had a dream that I had an affair with the person who molested me when I was 16.  I remember crying and telling him I am sorry for all that has happened to him ( him going to jail). He accepted my apology as if it wasn’t a big deal. I've forgiven him for what he has done but I am not sorry I put him in jail so I don’t get it.   – Stacy 25, Wausau, WI

Dear Lauri,

Yesterday I saw my ex-husband and the woman he left me for and their family at the mall. Although I have moved on and I am way better off than I ever was with him, I dreamt about her last night. She was nice, but she was wearing her bra backwards and she had a better computer than I did. I am a graphic designer so I always want a better computer. What does this mean? It's bugging me.
