Real or not?

I have been having much success with dream recall. My problem is this: I have conversations with people in the dream state. However, when I wake up, I believe that I actually had these conversations in the "waking" state. After thinking about the conversation a while, I realize that was part of a dream that I had.
It gets confusing. Did I actually have this conversation while "awake" or in a dream? The line is getting blurred. Does this make sense to anyone? Is this normal?

One of the only downsides of lucid dreaming or having better dream awareness is you can sometimes have false memories. I believe it has happened to me a few times. It's normal

I heard this before countless times, and must admit it myself.
When you lucid dream you can't help but question reality.
It comes with the territory.

I still have no concrete answer, but as a lucid dreamer I am open to the idea that reality is an illusion. It can drive you mad or you can embrace it and consider yourself unique and dare I say... enlightened.

The choice is yours!
