I had a dream that my godson, who is turning 19 but whom I haven't seen him since he was 7, phoned me up out of the blue and asked to come stay with me, because he is in recovery from addictions and can't stay with his mom anymore, because of HER addictions. (The latter is the reason I lost contact with both of them.)

Oh god, I wonder if it's a premonition...?

I've been having some really weird, realistic dreams the past few nights.

A couple of nights ago, I had this dream that I was at a friend's house (where I had actually been earlier that night) and I went to use their bathroom. The wall across from the toilet was a big sliding glass door (which it isn't in real life) and I was sitting there and all of a sudden this guy comes up to the glass and I start screaming and he manages to get in. He has a knife. Somehow, I manage to throw something at him and knock the knife out of his hand. I keep screaming, to try to get my boyfriend and friend to come in and save me, but after a couple of screams, I lose my voice. Then I forced myself to wake up.

I think I had this dream because I was at this friend's house earlier that night and I have has a lifelong fear of an attacker coming through a window or seeing creepy things through windows. I just finished a self-defense class a couple of weeks ago, and using your voice was a big part of it. It was a very good sign that in the dream I was able to scream at all- when I had those dreams before the class, nothing would come out. At least now, my subconscious has reassured me that if I really was attacked, I'd probably be able to scream and even fight back. Also, in said self-defense class, my teacher recommended a book called "Her Wits About Her"- it's a collection of true stories from women who successfully fought off an attacker. It's out of print now, but I found it on eBay and just started reading it, so I think it triggered the dream too. It has a whole section of stories from women who prevented an attack just by using their voice. Good book, though- hopefully it won't cause too many more bad dreams.

Then, last night I dreamt that I was back at my parents' house with my boyfriend (like maybe we were living there for some reason? Couldn't really tell) His mom came to drop something off and I went outside to get it from her. She starts going through the trash cans and sees that we're buying regular milk and she flips out and starts yelling that we need to buy organic milk and we're just too cheap and we should spend the extra money- she's really hostile about it. She yells about some other stuff and I go back in the house. I start to tell my boyfriend and my parents about how weird she's being and my dad says, "I think there's something you should know- [my boyfriend's name] has been cheating on you and reading your email and taking money from your account to spend on stuff." I was just really confused and shocked about what was going on. I tried to ask my dad why he would say that and how he would know, and meanwhile my boyfriend is just sitting there, not looking guilty and not denying anything my dad just said. My dad wouldn't tell my how he knew all of this and my boyfriend was just very non-chalant about it, like "oh, yeah, I did all of that, I don't really care about you anymore." And I kept protesting, trying to figure out what was going on, what he would have seen in my email that would have caused him to leave. He said something about his mom being offended by something I said, but it was something really insignificant (maybe that's why she was so pissed off about the milk!) and he was just ignoring me.

I forced myself to wake up and was disoriented for a few seconds. I realized I was in my own house, he was sleeping next to me (and hogging the bed as usual :-)) I rolled over towards him and actually started to cry a little. It took me a while to fall back asleep.

Not sure why I had this dream. Very strange. I'm a little insecure about my relationship with him, but more on my end than his.

Has anyone found that if you make a conscious effort to not dream about something scary, you won't? Like, if I saw a scary movie, or heard a scary story during the day, when I go to bed, if I consciously think, "Don't dream about that", I don't.

When we came home last night, a friend of one of our neighbors had passed out drunk on the stairs that go up to the second floor of our building. It was really startling when we walked in to find this guy laying there. Once we were sure he was still breathing, we went back out and pushed the intercom button for the neighbor (we wouldn't have been able to walk around him to get up the stairs to knock on the door) and the neighbor came down and collected the guy. Before I went to bed, I thought, "no dreams about creepy drunk guys."

Sorry for the long post, but a lot of times, my dreams become repetitive if I don't talk about them. It's pretty unusual for me to have bad dreams, especially ones that still creep me out when I'm awake, so hopefully the past few nights are just a coincidence.


--------------------
You went to school where you were taught to fear and to obey, be cheerful, fit in, or someone might think you're weird.
Life can be perfect. People can be trusted. Someday, I will fall in love; a nice quiet home of my very own.
Free from all the pain. Happy and having fun all the time.
It never happened, did it?
