  • Mood:
Oh man. Feel free to skip this; it's mostly only because I want to write it down so I don't forget. This morning I had a dream wasn't a nightmare, exactly, but it was very intense. Only relating the very end part, which is my main concern, although there was a lot in the beginning that built up the mood. Anyway, my mom and dad and I were driving home from, apparently, another country. We were in a truck, with a small pop-up camper in the box, and I and my cat were riding in there. Suddenly, police tried to flag us down, and in that dream-logic way, my parents and I were suddenly in another vehicle, having abandoned the truck, only to see that the camper had been sheared off at the top, then completely fallen out of the truck, and the truck, with no one at the wheel anymore, flipped into the ditch.

At this time I noticed my cat wasn't with me, and I started to scream at my dad to turn around, because I was sure she was hurt, if not dead, from the wreck. My dad refused, because he was afraid the police would "catch him." I told them if they didn't turn around I was going to jump out. They seemed to think I was just being dramatic, but even though I was terrified I'd break my leg or something, I yelled goodbye and jumped from the vehicle. I scraped up my legs horribly, but was otherwise unhurt, and started running back to the scene of the wreck. I was crying the whole time, thinking my cat was probably dead or dying, and that I had to be there for her at the end, at least. Then, as I was approaching the scene, I saw an officer with a leash, and at the end of the leash was my cat, terrified, but unhurt. Here I just started sprinting through snow, and couldn't stop repeating, "ohmygodohmygodohmygod..." and she saw me and I collapsed in the snow and she jumped up into my arms and I was sobbing and police were gathering around and then I woke up. And my cat was curled up all warm and safe on my legs and I felt like my heart would explode.

I don't know. I don't usually have dreams that affect me this way, probably because most of the time, I'm always aware that I am dreaming, and I exert subtle control over what is happening without even thinking about it. And the intensity of this one...I'm still a little shaken, admittedly. My cat was confused, I'm sure, because I held her and pet her for a really long time before getting out of bed. Not that she minded, of course.

ANYWAY enough of that. I stole this meme from ulqui because it is awesome:
