My Recurrent Dream

For those who analyze dreams...

There's one I have an awful lot. I faint. Mostly while at work. Sometimes at home. When I dream this, I dream it for a few nights in a row. Then some weeks will go by and I'll forget about it, but it always comes back. Last night was the second night in a row that I dreamed I fainted while at the workplace.

A friend looked it up for me:
To dream that you are fainting, suggests your inability to confront some unconscious issue or feelings. You need to be more aware and acknowledge of those feelings.


Could be. Another friend offered a comment a few weeks ago in regard to how hard it was for me to turn my head. It's possible that it was the result of a fall and was simply whiplash, but she suggested that repressed memories could be a factor. It's hard to say. If I knew for sure, then they wouldn't be very repressed or unconscious. What is definitely true is that I'm certainly wound quite tight and worry about more than is easy to imagine.

I won't make this an exercise in tedium. If you read here much, then you know my issues, the conscious ones anyway.

Thanks for reading. I'm going to go to bed and dream of fainting.

I'd trade the fainting for all the weird dreams I have about my teeth. Hang in there.

Do they fall out or something? Yeah, at least I don't have nightmares. I just faint and am left to wonder why.

I dreamed last night I had an 18 year old boyfriend.

Ew.

No no...You first fainted in 1983 when you heard your father play "The Boy From NYC" on a band gig at the Chattanooga Golf and Country Club...I mean like it was SO COOL...And ever since then your life has been anticlimactic, and you've been trying to bring back that special night.. Damn son, this is just basic Carl Jung...

My recurrent dream is not being able to open my eyes, or when I do, they're all blurry. Sometimes it takes the form of not being able to lift my head. It's the same miserable feeling, and I always wake with a headache.
