An improvement, then..That's all we can really ask for.
Dreamcatchers are sadly not perfect. Some people I have known would call blasphemy on me for that statement..I digress. If it helped you be less involved in the dream, then it accomplished something. If you can step back, you can fight the nightmare's waking effects much better.
@Eternity ... I guess it's an improvement.@Zia No actually it's making it MORE real. I like that it's taken away the mystery they had before. So honestly, I'm getting more involved... but at least I feel that I have more control now...~Eternally Anonymous~
I misunderstood. Still, if you have more control, I would deem that a step forward, and not backwards. Hopefully.
@ Zia You're right... It's better to have some control than to just have to go along for the ride.
