How are y’all doing today? Any plans for the weekend?
I had a dream last night that gave me the worst anxiety in the dream, and I woke up feeling really anxious. The first part of my dream consisted of me and some other people trying to meet up at a restaurant, and for some reason we kept getting lost and couldn’t find it. Our friend was waiting for us at the restaurant, and had already gotten a table so we were already really late. Being late and making people wait on me gives me anxiety IRL, but it’s never showed up in a dream before. After that my dream shifted, and my grandparents dog got loose and I had to chase after her. She wouldn’t stop when I called her, and I chased her for a good 15 minutes before I found her. She would never actually do that IRL, but the dream made me so incredibly anxious. My dog running away and not being able to find him is honestly one of my biggest fears.
It was so weird to feel anxiety in my dreams and wake up with the feeling lingering. I’ve never had that happen before. Thankfully I was able to fall back asleep for couple hours and now I’m feeling fine. I do wonder what caused the anxiety dreams, because I’m not feeling particularly anxious in real life lately.
