Epidaurus

There is a never-fail way to tell that I am overwhelmed…that I need to regroup…that I need to destress. I have this dream…I have had this dream for at least 17 years, maybe longer.

I am at an event and I am maneuvering between the benches of extremely steep bleachers…way up high. I am just about to fall. I am looking for a rail and trying to decide if I should sit down and scoot to the bottom, when I wake up. My heart is pounding and I can’t quite catch my breath.

That’s my “I’m overwhelmed” dream. I have an “I’m about to get in trouble” dream, too.

I am at school and realize that I have gum in my mouth. I spit it out in a trash can and go to my seat. Except there is a small piece stuck in my teeth and I start to play around with it in my mouth and it grows bigger and bigger. I spit it out in a trash can and go back to my seat. Except there is a small piece still in my mouth and it gets bigger and bigger…..get the picture! I can’t get rid of the gum! It’s maddening. I know I am about to get into trouble.

Do you have any recurring dreams? Have you analyzed them? Please share!
