I'm not exactly sure whether my DR is good or bad, I can usually remember a couple of fragments from a dream, sometimes from up to four, but I can NEVER remember an entire dream. It might still be good though because a recent dream, for instance, I can remember fragments but I'm pretty sure that that dream was several hours long, and I could only remember one big fragment of half and hour to an hour and a couple of fragments from several hours earlier, and possibly another fragment from an hour or two before that but that might have been a dream from a previous night with the beginning of that night's storyline. Anyways, that dream was at least 2 hours long.

Also, sometimes I have to remember and write down my dream right when I get up, and other times it will randomly come to me in the middle of the day, and I can reconstruct parts from that fragment.

My DR is excellent... but it's better some mornings than others. I simply have selective DR. My brain just chooses to remember awesome or highly detailed dreams... If I dig into my memory, I can usually pull up what I dreamt about, but it's much more vague than the awesome or highly detailed dreams... lach1 If that made sense.

I usually remember 5-6 dreams each morning.

It depends on how many of the dreams are emotionally significant. Just like in real life, I remember emotional events better. So on a good night, I can remember about 6 snippets of dreams.

Almost nonexistent. Something like once every week or two I remember some seconds of a dream.

I used to have a great dream recall,till some weeks before when suddently it stopped.I thought it may be because at that times i would sleep little,like 6 hours.On the last days it got better again,as my sleep is normal.

Right now I think my recall is good-- I've been remembering at least one every night, often with a lot of details and often I remember chains of dreams (I'm never sure how to distinguish the number of dreams for these)

I just hope it doesn't get worse as I get further into the school year sadblauw

My DR is REALLY shabby atm.

It was allright I guess, around a dream per night or something, then i changed well, whats the english word again? Clothes on the bed.

And no it is really little. I get glimpses of it during the day though (this might be REALLY frustrating).

Bah, it'll be better :turn3 And i really need to get better at writing down them dreams ! If not they go away meh

I can remember dreams better when I'm not woken up by anything. Usually the dreams go straight out of my head when people wake me up.
