Hi, im new to ATS, been listening to C2C for about 11 years now. I work 3rd shift, have for almost 12 years...6 nights a week. Most of the time, i
have trouble sleeping, habitual insomniac of sorts. My sleep usually bounces around, but i generally get at least 5 hours before i have to go to
work. Lately, its like i cant sleep enough. I definitely do not have insomnia as of late...the other day, i slept 13 hours straight. I have felt
uneasy for the last 2 weeks it seems. I cant quite put my finger on why, but its like im forgetting something. Like there is something i am supposed
to be remembering but cant, and if i stop to think about it really hard, i almost get to a place in my memory where i receive clarity...but as soon as
i do, i feel almost nauseous & i cant remember.
As for the dreams, this is kind of odd. Normally, i dream of work. Yes, it almost drives me insane. I make donuts, 6 nights a week, roughly 45 to
55 hours a week. I can't begin to tell you what it does to the psyche when you do that constantly, then you go to sleep & dream of the same thing.
This is probably why i normally do not sleep more than 5 hours. Yesterday, i had a VERY disturbing dream. I cant say if it means anything, it could
just be a conglomeration of random thought patterns for all i know. But, nonetheless, here it is.
I was walking around my town, down around a Catholic church. It was extremely hot out, and i remember it was all i could do just to breathe, it being
so hot. I went into the church where i found a number of people gathered around a woman on the floor. She was very pale, and there was a smell of
burnt hair in the air. Apparently, this woman had just given birth to seven children, all still-born. I asked to see the babies, and when i looked
at one, it looked like it had been cooked, for lack of a better term. The woman holding this child said it was the first to be born, and said the
child's name was Israel. She then handed the child to the woman on the floor, the mother i assume. The mother started to cry, as did everyone there
(even me), and a priest came and brought a blanket to wrap the mother in. I remember thinking that was odd, since it was so hot out. The blanket had
a blue sun on it, i dont know why i remember that or if that has any significance. Then i got nauseous, so i went outside to "relieve" myself. I
started to vomit water, gallons of it, and then my teeth started falling out. I looked up, and noticed hundreds of meteorites in the sky falling
down, even though it was daylight. The dream ended just after that, when i said aloud "There's nothing we can do". The reason i KNOW i said this,
was i actually said this out loud. My wife was next to me in bed watching TV, and heard me say that, and i then immediately got up & wrote the dream
down, since it was really odd (and somewhat Lucid).
Like i said, it couldve just been an over-active imagination or just random thoughts that occurred during sleep...who knows. Still, i dont normally
have dreams like this. I have had Lucid dreams, but not in a very long time.
