I've always had vivid dreams. I totally love remembering and finding out what they mean.
I learned a way to remember many details of a dream some years ago. It really works.
When you wake from a dream, Keep…"
I agree Rise'. I also got all organized just before I got my period.
I will blame hormones too.
Both times I was pregnant @20 and 23, as soon as I went into labor, I organized and cleaned stuff I had not touched in 9 months.

Where did you hear about Transplant Friends?
I am Interested in Transplant Friends because...
After Jeremy's death I needed to see the bright side. I became a member of TransplantBuddies and knew I was home. Transplant Friends is also a place for the support I have needed during my journey learning to live without my beautiful son.
Share how your transplant experience changed your life?
My only son,Jeremy, died 04/11/09. Most of our family are organ/tissue donors. I never in my worst nightmares, thought I would have to lose my daughter,or my son.
Jeremy donated Easter morning 2009, His death broke me. I have comfort knowing we talked about being donors. Jeremy said, "How can we not be donors?" I agreed.
Although I am not the Brian you speak of, I believe he is hope to be listed for a kidney, if my memory serves me right. I am from Ohio and going through the eval process for a lung transplant at the Cleveland Clinic. I remember reading your story at some point, and just tried to find it again; as to not disrespect your son while mentioning him, but I was unable to track it down. Once again, if my memory serves me right, didn't Jeremy pass away in a motorcycle accident? I am sorry if I'm wrong, I have just been on many sites in the last 2 yearss and met so many people and read so many stories. I commend you and Jeremy's wife for having the courage to help so many people. My sister's fiance, oddly enough-Jeremy,was killed some years back in an aotu accident on his way to work. He was only 19 at the time and his mother couldn't bring herself to donate his organs. I often thought about that and how about 8 people had to suffer because of that decission; although I realize it is not a decision that is easily made at times. Thank you for requesting the friendship, even though I am the wrong Brian.....sometimes there are even reasons for mistakes in life. You have commented on more than a few of my posts on transplantbuddies, and were always very kind......Thank You. Please feel free to messaage me anytime, at 14% lung function, I don't go to far and will likely get back to you fairly quick. Brian
Sorry to be so long in responding, I haven't really used this site much yet. I know it is confusing keeping track of who is who on these sites. I think that it is fantastic that you are keeping Jeremy's memory alive. I hope these sites have helped you in your grieving. It sure has been helpful to me to hear from donor families like you. My donor family is unknown to me, but I think of them every single night.
I "would scream like a girl" if I knew how much we'all helped you? How ironic -- I have girlie lungs now, so technically I CAN scream like a girl!!! And thanks for telling us that we are all givers of great gifts too -- that means a lot to me and all of us... We wouldn't be here to pass along our gifts if it were not for people like Jeremy and you... Love, Steve
