> Just woke up from one of my very rare remembered dreams. And what few ones I do remember are usually very mundane. I get up, brush my teeth, get ready for work... That sort of thing.
> But in this one I am in a health club or something like that. I dive into the pool and find out that it's deeper than I had thought. I'm headfirst, going deeper and deeper and deeper, wondering where the bottom could possibly be, almost idly wondering if there was a lifeguard. Then I hear a voice that sounds as if it's right beside me although I immediately recognize that it is the lifeguard speaking from above surface. The voice calmly gives me instructions about how to turn around and head towards the surface. I do what it says and eventually come up. Everyone is relieved but I realize that I had come to the health club with my son, and start frantically looking for him. He's floating nearby and when I grab him, I can tell he's unconcious. Horrified and terrified, I hand him to the lifeguard to do CPR.
> Then I wake up terrified and shaking.
> What would that mean? Althoug if it's awful, I don't think I want to know. Do I feel like I'm neglecting my son to dive deeper into - what? I don't *think* I am. :(((

I don't think the dream was about neglecting your son. It might have had more to do with the fact that you feel that you are facing many challenges alone. The lifeguard's voice may represent your support, be it friends, family, or whoever. Your son being unconscious could mean that he is going through some challenges and hardships that you might not be aware of. By bringing you to the surface, the lifeguard was letting you know that you are not in this alone, neither is your son, and that he needs you very much right now.

I'm in no way a dream expert but it is interesting to consider possibilities. On different days I might interpret the same dream differently.

To me, dreams are like kaleidoscopes.
