A Bad Dream

Posted by tinydancer on February 14, 2004, at 7:16:41

This morning I had a terrible dream. I dreamt that my son was trapped in an earthquake and while my father and husband tried to get him out, he had ran and hidden instead of getting out of the building. They tried to get him out but he got killed. In the dream he was laying there lifeless and I was obviously completely devastated. In the dream I was in total grief, I could not accept that he was not with me. I woke myself up with my sobbing and my son was there and asked me what had happened and I told him my dream. (He is 7 by the way). He was so sweet and comforted me but I can't stop thinking about it. I am afraid that somehow this dream could come true. I feel this pain in my heart and chest area, I am just so terrified. The dream was so real, it tore me apart. I know it is torturing myself to keep thinking about it, but I cannot help it. It is almost like compulsive thinking or something. I would like to hear if anyone else struggles with bad dreams (This is not the first time I had a bad dream, I have them a lot) and how they cope with them, especially the aftermath when things seem real. I have MPD so my reality is already very altered. Thanks for reading...
