I had a terrifying dream last night that I was in a catastrophic car accident, during which I was thrown from the car. Afterwards I was told I would never walk normally again. The dream-pain was so intense that I had to get up in the middle of the night to find my high-octane painkillers and I was too scared to go back to sleep, so I've been up for hours and hours. I am still kind of terrified even though I know it was a dream and I still have a clear memory-feeling of the pain - there was the initial thump of the car hitting the wall and then I was ejected from the car and rolled three times (this is a very distinct memory) before coming to a stop.
I also had an unrelated weird dream in which I found an injured bat and had to take it to an animal sanctuary, and it bit me and bit me. Strangely enough I was not worried about rabies but I was concerned that I was bleeding all over things. I was sure that if the bat was strong enough to bite that it would eventually recover, and I felt good about that, but it hurt me very badly with its sharp little teeth and claws.
WHAT MADE MY BRAIN DO THIS TO ME? WHAT DOES IT MEAN?!?
