Sleep is not always healing, it seems

I woke up hurting in several places, probably from trashing around in my sleep. In one of my last dreams before waking up there actually was some event that explained the pain, but I forgot the details almost as soon as I woke up and realized that it was just an ad hoc invention to protect my sleep.

Of course, we do the same thing in our "waking" life as well, fabricate various reasons for our pains so we don't need to wake up even more and realize that we are hurting ourselves. Nice hands-on demonstration there.
