Poor Anna had a nightmare and woke up at 2 a.m. all freaked out. I don't like nightmares or bad dreams or night terrors or whatever they're called. I have them very infrequently, but when I do, they leave me shaken.
For years I had two recurring dreams, one weird and one scary. The weird one involves all of my teeth falling out of my mouth, and it's a waterfall of teeth, as if I have dozens of Chiclets pouring out of my mouth. Strange. I looked up the losing-teeth-in-dreams issue, and - unsurprisingly - it has to do with control issues. I'm shocked, really. Except not.
The scary one has to do with being chased. Some giant faceless creature (it could be a man or a monster, I don't know) is chasing me, and I'm running as fast as I can trying to get away. It catches up with me and grabs me, and right when I turn around to face it, I wake up. I have no idea what it looks like nor do I know what it wants. All I know is that I wake up totally panicked and I can't go back to sleep.
I haven't had the recurring dreams in a while. That's a good thing, right?
