Strange title for a thread, yeah, this is more than just a dream about hy head blowing up.
First, I'd never experienced this exploding head thing until last night, I'd read about it and found it quite uninteresting...to me it sounded like a
kind of variation of that dream where you're falling and wake up right before impact, not something I've invested much time in pondering or
investigating, or even heard or read about in a few years.
Last night I was really tired when I got home from work and lay down, dozed off. My dream was unremarkable, I was sat with my brother and a friend of
his who I do't like that much, not that I don't like her, exactly...just never had much in common or much of a connection with him.
We were sat watching something on television and this friend of my brothers turned and said something to me, I can't remember what he said but I
remember feeling like it was the first time he's ever said anything that I was interested in or agreed with, I don't think it's that important,
After he spoke I remember thinking to myself, "my head's going to explode", and it did...it was damn loud and I woke up, for some reason I wasn't all
that startled or shocked, I opened my eyes and kind of thought to myself...ok, so it is actually real, exploding head syndrome exists...cool.
The next thought that popped into my head was something that happened to me when I was veeeeery young, perhaps about 4 or 5...something I'd forgotten
about long ago. The incident I remember is in itself quite strange, perhaps worthy of a thread in its own right..
I was sitting in my grandparents house in a bedroom, I was eating a tube of smarties (for anyone who doesn't know, smarties are little balls of
chocolate with a coloured, sugar coated shell) I dropped one, I distincly remember it was a red one...being a kid (a greedy little boy) I went to pick
it up off the floor and it burned me, it was read hot...I dropped it and cried out in pain. It burned my thumb and forefinger, I remember crying and
had blisters, over time they became little callouses that were there for ages.
I'd forgotton about it years ago, I remember telling my grandparents and they didn't seem all that concerned, running my fingers unter the cold tap
and comforting me, they probably thought I was lying, I even remember going back into the room later and looking for that red smartie and not being
able to find it. I find it bizarre that this memory came back to me after some 25 years...and that I'd actually forgotten the incident, it having been
so unusual...I dunno what to make of it.
It's as though the exploding head thing awakened that long forgotten memory. I'm interested in others experiences with this strange exploding head
syndrome, is it just coincidence that this memory was fresh in my mind after this experience? I also find it odd that I anticipated the explosion of
said head in the dream before it happened, perhaps it happened simply because I thought of it, but like I said it's not something I've thought about
or dwelled on much...odd to say the least, any thoughts or experiences to share?
Additional - just to ask mode to please not move this thread to the dreams forum as it's about more than just a dream, I'd appreciate it,
