Have you ever had a dream that seemed very real and then you wake up believing that it happened?

Is there a reason why this happens? Some dreams seem more real than others?

Update:

to further add to what some of you are saying about how these dreams are stored like real memories i think you touched on a key point about how the brain stores information from reality.

    Wow! Yes I do not all the time but I do sometimes. Usually it is something concerning my husband being gone, or someone dying I know this sounds crazy especially because we have such a great relationship but who knows. Dreams are crazy I know that the most intense dreams come within a few hours of you waking up when your sleep isn't as good as through the night. Just learned about it in Psych class!

    I had a dream I have been given up and have been given waiting for college, i grew to become into chuffed 'reason it left me time to easily relax. Then I wakened. It felt so actual and that i grew to become into particularly aggravated, it felt like I had already completed each and every little thing that morning. haha that is not any longer rather comparable to what you propose however, i haven't particularly ever had a dream that made me think of it might ensue. must be rather freaky.

    Yes, a ot of times I remember things and then I realize "Wait.. That was a dream." But it's pretty much stored like a memory for me.

    It's very strange and I wonder why it happens, too!

    This happens to me from time to time. I'm usually dreaming of something bad happening to me, and wake up feeling awful. It's always such a relief when I realize it didn't really happen.

    That has happened to me a couple of times, actually once very recently. I'm usually disappointed when I wake up. :(

    I don't know why it happens.

    I'm not sure why or how it happens...but it happened to me a few times. I was talking to my friend and I'm like "Oh, do you remember that time when..?" and she's like "No. That never happened".

    I was scared, haha =]
