Lately I've been having vivid dreams. Intense, vivid dreams. Draining, intense, vivid dreams.
I can't explain why. I've never been big on analyzing dreams. Although I do find it interesting that the people in your dreams aren't really who the dream is about. Really? So when I dream about my husband, I'm really dreaming about someone else? And if we should talk in our sleep and happen to say someone else's name, we can just tell our significant other that even though the person didn't look or sound anything like them, we were, actually dreaming about the significant other? Make sense? Yeah. Not to me either.
Anyway, let's get back to my most recent dream. It could have been because I'd just watched Twilight (again) and was discussing it with a friend. She's seen New Moon as well and I asked her if it was as good as Twilight. She assured me that it was/is and that I have to make sure to watch it when it comes out on DVD. She went into more (physical) detail about the wolves in New Moon. Sounds delicious!
So last night I dreamt of wolves. But not the shapeshifter kind. These were very real, very threatening wolves. In the midst of this dream, one leapt up to attack me and I blocked him hard with my forearm. When I woke up the next morning, my forearm was throbbing. I actually had to take ibuprofen to ease the discomfort but it was persistent. I'm sure I must have slept on it wrong but all I can think about was how painful it felt when I fought off the wolf. Weird? Yeah. I thought so too.
How about you? Ever have any lingering effects after an intense dream?
