This feels like a true confessions / Therapy thread.

When I was a kid my parents went out one night leaving me and my 2 older sisters home alone. They were doing handstands when one sister slipped and broke her collar bone. I can still hear the sound of the bone making a very loud cracking sound.

Some 50 years later I still get freaked out if anyone touches me in the collarbone area. In fact just writing about it is making me a little twitchy.

Yes Adam, I have it on good authority that several Mods have entered therapy programs since your return.

A bit of a tease, but you have to admit you opened the door on that one yourself.

so not all dreams are necessarily bad or reflect on the unknowns in our work. I just woke up from one that was quite pleasant:

I was a foreign country resident and had been talking through the internet with an american pastor for years. I finally asked him to pay me a visit in my country and he agreed and purchased his travel plans. When he told me where he was arriving and gave me his picture so I knew who I was looking for, I immediately went to the airport terminal on the date he was scheduled to arrive and started scanning the people getting off the plane eager to introduce myself. When the last person de-boarded and I didn't see him, I started walking down the terminal searching cuz I thought I had missed him. I walked right by a guy at a ticket counter that looked like him so I turned back and saw his face and knew immediately that it was him. I just smiled at him real big and went up to him and said: "Hello Dave, thank you for coming over". He then introduced me to Nick, one of my best friends from high school, and told me that he brought him along from the USA as a reinforcement and protection just in case I wasn't legitimate or he was being led into a trap. Funny thing is....There IS a senior pastor named Dave at my church and my best friend in high school was indeed named Nick.

I kinda think that last part is relating that scenario with one I could possibly run into if the russian girl I've been talking to for months ends up coming over here and visiting me (which she has always been adamant about doing).

Richard,

I had quite an interesting one last night. I was almost to the point of waking up and probably only *half* asleep at this point, but the dream saw me working at an employer's office on-site. I had gotten frustration beyond belief with the paranoia of management and I decided to download a p0*n video from the internet as a stress reliever. but I had to leave my desk for some reason that was not identified and I accidentally left the video playing and visible on my desktop computer. One of the supervisors walked by my desk while I was away, saw it, and I overheard her say to another worker "call his recruiter immediately. he's fired. and tell his recruiter we suggest he not work with this individual anymore". I'm sure glad *this* one will never come to pass! Freud said every dream is a wish. Well not in this case!

Modern shrinks say Freud was wrong. Not every dream is a wish. Some dreams represent fears. That one is the "fear of having neglected something" and is at least partly consistent with the "waking up naked" dream or the "running out of gas while driving in the desert" dream.

In essence, it derives from a low level, nagging feeling of insecurity.

are you referring to my currently employment situation or your previous comment about "unknowns" always being present in software deployments?

Richard,

It seems that these things are getting less severe, but are still strange. For instance, yesterday when Enterprise Rent-a-Car was taking me to get my vehicle for the week, I dosed off for 5 minutes and had this strange dream:

"I went to anytime fitness to work out and went into a changing room to get into my gym fatigues. But there was a bunch of clothes laying on the floor and it was apparent that someone was in there, or left their belongings there. After a couple minutes of changing clothes, there was a knock on the door. I opened it and there was Jared Lee Loughner, and he told me that he was using the room and demanded I get out. So I told him I was sorry and left. I then woke up, as at that point we were pulling into the rental office's parking lot"

Talk about *weird*!!

Dreaming of encountering a mass murderer? Bizarre. I would interpret that as fear of a hidden danger or problem. Anxiety-related and still would count as fear of the unknown.
