Dreaming of Falling
This morning I woke up with the worst anxiety attack I've had in a long time. The worst part was that I couldn't really do anything to calm my nerves because I had kids to get ready for school and I'm still feeling on edge right now even writing this.
So what caused this attack?! I had a horrible dream. It started off that I got into an elevator with two women who looked like they were girlfriends and of course I've never seen them before or recognized them. Then all of a sudden the the elevator started to jerk and come to a halt. Then it started free falling. The other two women held on to each other screaming and I fell to the floor. I started to see my life flash before my eyes, the boys, Justin and all of us having a good time laughing. Then there was nothing, my mind just went blank and I remember getting mad that here it was that I was about to die and my mind was blank. No memories, no words, nothing to comfort me. Then right before the elevator crashed it came to a stop and one of the women was able to squeeze the doors open and jump out. I was next and then the other woman followed. Then my dream was over and I woke up with this anxiety attack. UGH!!!
What on Earth does this dream mean and why did it scare the crap out of me? Why did my mind go blank, why couldn't I recall anything? Have y'all every had a dream that caused you anxiety? If y'all have any advice about the dream or what y'all do to help your anxiety help a sista out and share!!!
