Past and Immediate Future

Posted: August 6, 2009 in dreams, family, therapy, work

I had a bad dream last night that I got into an argument with my younger sister. She did something to really piss me off and I told her I was done with her. I woke up with a headache (again) and a little disoriented. I hate waking up from dreams like that, i never feel quite right.

This is the 2nd or 3rd dream I’ve had where me and my sister get really into it. I love my sister to death, and don’t know why I’m dreaming these things. I got a voicemail from her yesterday, which may have prompted the dream. I’m also wondering if this is residual from past feelings. Having two intake appointments one right after the other has brought up a lot of things from the past. One of those things is my frustration (I can’t think of the actual word I want to use) over her seemingly favored position in the family. These dreams may be a way for me to express these feelings in ways I never could in real life. I don’t know. Maybe I’ll bring it up in my next therapy appointment.

I’m headed out…well, I’m late…to a work retreat. It’s an overnight and I’ll be back tomorrow afternoon. I hope I’m able to keep it together. I don’t know how the stress of constantly being “on” and the sadness I always get when I’m away from my husband will affect my experience.

Wish me well!
