I’ve been having this really disturbing recurring nightmare. The way I realize I’m having these nightmares, by the way, is that I have a memory of it and then realize that there’s no way it could have happened in real life. Sometimes, though, I get confused and wake up annoyed at someone for something they did in my dream.
So the dream. It’s random. I’m playing with a cat (I like cats), and all of a sudden it clamps its jaws on my hand. It really really hurts. And the dilemma is, if I try to pry its jaws open, it just clamps down harder. If I leave it alone, it relaxes somewhat, but as soon as I try to get it off, it clamps down tight again. I can’t remember how it ends, but I’ve had it several times.
I’m trying to figure out what this means. Maybe there’s some bad situation in my life where if I try to get rid of it it just gets worse, but if I leave it alone it doesn’t go away. But I can’t figure out what that could possibly be.
There’s actually another recurring dream I have that I’ve written about before. Doesn’t happen frequently, but I’ve been having it for years. I’m driving some sort of vehicle down a crowded street. The thing is, I can’t see where I’m going. For different reasons. Sometimes, I’m driving in the backseat in a way that it’s hard to see the windshield. Other times it’s just a bizarre vehicle where I can’t really see out the front. But in any case, I’m driving and I’m scared to death I’m going to hit someone. I’m driving blind, and I know it’s not going to end well.
I can’t figure out what this dream means either. Maybe I feel my life is out of control? That doesn’t seem right. Maybe my dreams don’t mean anything. But yeah, it’s just strange how I have these bizarre recurring dreams.
