For the last four days straight, I have been having nightmares. I've been so exhausted and wanting to sleep so badly that I've been falling asleep before I remember to post. It isn't unusual for me to have nightmares, really, but it is unusual for them to be so vivid and persistent. I feel rather like my unconsciousness is unburdening me of every issue that I've been facing in my life ever, because that's what it feels like.
I see my subconscious thoughts as being something like a dammed lake. It has been building up all these years, leaking out a little at a time to keep from overfilling. But now, the floodgates are opened and there is a deluge of anxiety and worry pouring out. I neither know how to stop it nor what was the cause. The best I can do is simply hope that this next time around, I'll be too tired to even dream. So far, this has not been the case. If only I had this kind of issue when I wanted to remember my good dreams. I can never have the awesome recurring good dreams that truly inspire. Nope! Gotta have the dark nightmares. As if the night isn't full of terrors enough on its own.
