Hi Michael, your dreams certainly seem symbolic, don't they? She seems to be what you need her to be -- first, healthy and okay, doesn't need anything; then the kiss, you needed that. And now... her back is to you. Could she be saying, please try to heal? "I'm still here but you need to not need me as much?" That's what it sounds like to me. I hate dreaming of Bob, in any form. If things are normal, I wake up crying, if they are not normal, I wake up crying. The worst dream I had was when I dreamt that the whole thing was a dream, and that he wasn't really gone. That dream stayed with me for days and I still cry now, just as I'm typing this. For the first two months after he passed, I took a half Xanex so I could fall asleep and stay asleep. But that didn't take away the dreams. Now I don't take anything for sleep. Do you talk with her? She seems to be trying to help you.
I had been only hoping to see my Ricky in my dreams and the one time we did, we argued, as usual!
Hi Maura, I'm so sorry you dreamt you were arguing! It's hard enough to keep the bad times from popping into my head as it is, without reliving them at night!! <3
I used to have dreams quite a bit about my father, more recently about one of my good friends Kevin. At first the dreams about my father were me "chasing" him at the hospital he worked at. He would be just getting on an elevator and I couldn't get to it in time. Or just rounding a corner and I would race to that spot and not be able to see him. The most vivid one I had - was that I was in something like the amazing race.. And I was tired near the top of a mountain in Hawaii that we climbed together. I was really tired near the top (its a part in real life - that I got scared and wanted to go back down but with his help I made it the rest of the way) and dad came out of no where holding out his hand telling me that he would help me. Pull me to the top and I told him that I didn't need his help, I needed to do it on my own now. Since then the dreams of my dad only show up when I am having a rough time in life
