I've lurked here quite a bit and have read Is anecdotal evidence sufficient for answers?. I've only answered one question, and I'm still not sure if my answer is appropriate for the site. So I'm asking here. Is this answer acceptable? Can you tell if you're dreaming by pinching yourself?
EDIT: There is another question out there that I would like to answer in much the same way. https://skeptics.stackexchange.com/questions/19179/can-someone-see-into-the-future-through-dreams. I have a story that I would like to share. Like many people I have had experiences during which I could just swear that I had seen a scene in life in a recent dream. But, I'm a skeptic and can usually dismiss those thoughts as coincidence. I have one experience though that can't just be dismissed that easily. One thing that sets this experience apart is that I found the dream odd and shared it with my husband. It was later that we both were startled when a very specific detail "came true". This particular incident was decades ago, but it gives me chills to this day. Would a story like that be an appropriate "answer"? It's too long for "comments".
