The secret diary of a single parent bloke

Recurring dreams

Uploaded: Wednesday, February 16th, 2011

Monday, October 2nd, 2006.

I have two recurring dreams- I get them every few days, especially when I’m stressed. I don’t need a dream analyst to explain their meaning to me though, they’re pretty self-explainatory.

I’m back at school after a long break. I haven’t got anything that I need, I don’t recognise anybody, or know what lesson I’m supposed to be going to. But worst of all, I’m confused and worried: how am I going to fit in work for 8 hours when I’m at school? How will I pay the mortgage? Is there any way I can do both?

Back together
I’m in a social or family situation. Everyone’s having a good time- family are happy, kids are playing nicely, chat and laughter fills the room. Everyone’s happy, except for me- I’m miserable and confused because sat next to me, holding my hand, is Katrina. She’s happy too, and I hear little comments from people saying how happy they are that we’re back together. But I don’t understand how it happened, or what’s going on. I feel trapped and under pressure to conform, and not to let anyone down.

When I wrote this in October 2006, the dreams were fairly common. Over time they’ve diminished, but still crop up from time to time (especially the latter). I still wake up in a cold sweat!
