Seth and Karen


I've been having rather rotten and strange dreams lately. I'm sleeping oddly in the first place. I sleep like a rock for about an hour at a time and then wake right up for fifteen minutes or so and then fall asleep. But that's only once I've actually managed to fall asleep. I've yet to fall asleep this evening (or morning as the case may be).

This morning, Seth went to shul and I stayed home because Ira is stubborn and I'm still feeling rotten and I was drugged. Shortly after Seth left, I was laying on the couch and I dozed off and dreamed that one of the cats hit me with a blunt object, like a hammer or something. The thing is, I actually felt something hit my skull, though nothing did. I woke up with a jolt. I woke up throughout the day with dreams of bugs crawling on me or strange snippets of arguments that didn't make sense...the dreams weren't so much about the substance of the argument but about the frustration and other emotions I was going through. The emotions woke me up and I didn't immediately lose those sensations upon waking up. This has been going on for at least a week now.

Seth said that pain sometimes causes strange dreams, but that also the pain medicines I've been taking affect the CNS (which I assume stands for Central Nervous System), which could affect my dreams as well. I assume that the combination of the two could be what's making the dreams so vivid.

But it's really freaky.
