NOVA: What Are Dreams?

I have a question. What happens if you no longer have any recall of your dreams. This began for me almost 8 yrs ago. I was having intrusive thoughts day and night about places I had been visiting for work, but was no longer working in these places. I prayed to have these thoughts and dreams removed. That same night, my ability to recall any dreams stopped. In eight years, nothing but a few waking images. Before that, I had had a very vivid dream life, and miss the insights gained from some of my dreams. Is there a name for this lack of recall of dreams? Since that time, I'm much more careful what I pray for. I have always had difficulty falling asleep and staying asleep. I have also noted a gradual loss of memory as well. I hate to think this is another sign of aging, as I am 57, but would like to know if any of this is related to Alzheimer's, early onset, possibly.
