Took my girls to some sort of summer camp way out in the country. It felt very secretive. I remember looking for my things I had brought with me. I somehow found out that the people in charge were running some sort of child sex ring. I escaped and was running away but couldn't run fast, I was running in slow motion. I got away and got to my car, but my girls were still in the place. I told the people who were chasing me that I was just going into town to get some cigs.



I woke up with my heart pounding.

I was in my mother's house with my youngest, when she was a baby. I was trying to get her to go to sleep but she kept waking up. I was trying to do laundry to wash her sleepers but the noise of the washer made her cry.

I was in an old house with a baby and had to change the diaper but couldn't find the right size for the baby. There were cupboards with diapers and clothes but none of them the right size. I had to check in with the nurse to give the baby's meds.

For years I have had terrible nightmares. I'm quite often murdered in my dreams and my daughter is often in danger and I have to kill a whole bunch of bad guys to save her. The best I can come up with is that it represents a general feeling of hopelessness and lack of control. But they never bother me, I can go back to sleep and accept it for what it is. A dream.

The ones that do effect me are the dreams about the ex wife. Those just depress me and can ruin my day.

I haven't kept a log to see if these occur at any given time or only when I was drinking. Hopefully I don't relapse again and I don't have any of those dreams.

Dreamt I was riding on a little cart. It was at night, on a busy road. I was riding with someone else who was not a friendly person. I was trying to get away from him.

I was in a big old house and I had to clean it. I was making piles of laundry according to the fabric weight and color. I had three piles ready to go in the washer. There were two washers, a smaller top loader and a big heavy duty front loader. I was washing the heavy stuff first cause I knew it would take a long time in the dryer.

Dreamt I was in a dormitory-like shower room and the guys kept coming in when we were trying to shower. I complained about it and made them get out. There were lots of shower supplies, like soap and shampoo, and everything was stored in a big bucket.

Dreamt I was at home and had to go to work but couldn't find my keys. I was frantically looking for them but couldn't find them. After a lot of frustration I finally found them - I had been holding them in my hand the whole time and didn't know it.

I was in mom's bsmt, only it didn't look like her bsmt. I was doing laundry and cleaning. She had three washing machines. I was sorting the laundry and putting it in the machines. She had three big jars full of coins. I said I'd take them to my bank to turn them into paper money. She wanted to go with me to the bank. I told her not to tell the bank they were her coins.

My dad was also there, which is strange since they were divorced. I was turning off lights where they weren't needed. I had to ask dad to turn some off since I couldn't reach them.

A bit of a dream comes back to me. I was disconnecting mom's car battery to keep her from driving. I had to get her neighbor to help as I couldn't unscrew the battery cables.

I've dreamed of this incident before. Doing that made an impression on me as I was worried sick about mom continuing to drive when she was clearly not fit to drive.

I was trying to call a taxi but the kids were making noise and I couldn't hear him. I kept yelling at the kids to be quiet.

Dreamt I got a call to work in the factory tonight. I decided to wear my green crushed velvet hippie dress. I took a shower and put on my dress with green tights and my bead necklace. I remember I was wearing my little black shoes.

I remember in the dream that I had to clean my glasses as they were very dirty.

Dreamt I had no internet and no money to pay the electric bill to get it restored.
