At my first counselors session last week she told me to start keeping track of my dreams. She thinks that I have a problem “dealing” with things from my past. Mainly she said I don’t. Which is true. Denial is wonderful till you are down the road a few years and suddenly you are a loon.
I generally remember most of my dreams. I never really understood how people couldn’t because I wake up, and can recall later, most details of my dreams. So when she said that dreams are often an outlet for our past issues that need to be dealt with… I dunno. My dreams don’t seem TO ME to do that. But the rational side of me realizes that I’m not the best person to try and determine how “normal” people should be dreaming so I figured I’d give it a try and see what comes of it. Of course now all my dreams seem to scream ‘YOU ARE A LUNATIC AND YOU CAN’T RUN FROM ME ANY LONGER!!! MUAHAHAAAHAAAAHH.’
Wednesday night I had a dream that a midget was chasing me. He chased me into a house and when he finally caught up to me *I* pinned *HIM* to the ground. He kicked and screamed and fought like a SOB but I muffled everything he was trying to tell me and wouldn’t let him escape.
No, I don’t have issues!
I don’t know if I’m just paying more attention or if there’s been a subliminal message planted in there from talking to the counselor and now I’m dreaming that way because of it.
I know I have become psychic however because today Kristen said on a message board she was going to start a new topic that will bring up old arguments. Last night I dreamed at one point that she and I got into an argument online and the suddenly she was kicking my ass. Like, royally. It’s the first time I’ve ever had my ass kicked in the real OR dream world.
You’re lucky it wasn’t real life Kristen! You hear that!!
