So this week has been full of nightmares. Started with the one that had me screaming and scaring my son and I both and continued over the week. UGH!
The second one I cannot remember; but woke up to me punching the mattress. All I can think is that I must have been in a fight. Who knows?
Next, I dreamed an elaborate American Horror Story nightmare, complete with Finn Wittrock as he killer I was trying to escape. Unbelievable!!!
I discussed them with a friend at church last night and she thinks it may be because it’s been almost a year since my friend died, my cousin died and my ex-husband died. Great, I’m going to be haunted by them until October. Nice! I’m hoping this is not the cause and it’s something else. We shall see if the nightmares persist.
I do confess, though, I wish I could “download” the AHS nightmare; because I’d turn it into a best selling novel and share my crazy with the world. LOL! It was pretty intense and would make a good book along the Stephen King line of horror stories.
According to Psychology Today, most nightmares are a normal reaction to stress, and some clinicians believe they help people work through traumatic events. WebMD suggests that people with underlying diseases may also be the reason, two of which I personally suffer from (Sleep Apnea & PTSD). Knowing this is no comfort and I will just have to ride this wave out.
My son & I spent a half hour yesterday getting his Senior Portraits taken. Quick, easy and painless. Tuxedo, Cap & gown and casuals taken in a studio. We’ll see what we get. Afterwards, we went to Chili’s for lunch and later went to church.
It’s been raining for days here and we have a small pond or large swimming pool in our backyard, along with a flooded front lawn and driveway. Rain will continue through tomorrow as well. They cancelled the football game due to in on Friday and it is supposed to be rescheduled for tomorrow; but if this rain continues, I doubt it will take place. Flooding is everywhere and it was the main reason for the cancellation, so with no end in sight, I’m sure it will not be.
All this rain has the dogs not happy. They don’t want to go out in the wetness to do their business. I did get them to go out earlier this morning and they were not happy being wet at all. Not that I blame them.
At least we’re not in Texas. I pray for their safety. I remember back in 2004 when we rode out Ivan, a category 5, with tremendous damage. I’ll never do that again. A tornado ripped through our back yard and we were fortunate enough that it wasn’t 10 feet closer or our house would’ve been destroyed. Never again! That was a bad year for Florida with 4 major hurricane hits.
And life goes on……
