Day 246: Lost again

My dreams have been unsettling again. Most of last night’s have been lost in my memory, but the last one is sticking out.

In the dream, I woke up very late for work. Like, an hour late. I panic and try to text my coworkers to say I overslept and I was coming. Texting was nearly impossible because all the words I typed were  unreadable gibberish. I kept trying and it only got worse. Eventually, I got some kind of message sent.

I tried driving and the highways were twisted and broken. Traffic was a nightmare. I couldn’t find my way to work no matter how I tried. At some point, my husband showed up to help me. We wandered around lost until my phone said it was 3:45. Work was over for the day.

At this point, I started waiting. Full on, hands in the air, crying and screaming. I was so overwhelmed and frustrated and that was all I could do. I work up after that.

I’m sure it means something that I don’t want to look up right now. I have dreams about missing work a lot, but I never reacted like that. As I said, it was unsettling. I’m supposed to be on my way to work now, but I had to get my thoughts out. It might calm me down a bit.
