Anxiety dreams

I had two fairly typical anxiety dreams last night (coupled with some very frustrating insomnia). In one dream that repeated itself throughout the night, I was trying to catch an international flight and kept on getting thwarted by various things: my cab was late, I couldn't find my passport, I couldn't find my airline's gate, etc.

In the second dream, I was criticizing a friend of a friend, and he said to me, "Well, look at you! Look what you've done to your hair!" I was shocked speachless until I saw myself in a mirror and I had a very blond, very messy bouffant.

Why am I sharing this? Because in writing back to Fatcharlatan in my last post, I realized why I was having them: I'm really, really nervous to see my mentor's comments on my work! I have no idea what to expect. And clearly uncomfort with that unknowing is invading my psyche. Any other Lesley-ers having these feelings, or am I just crazy(er)? Best Blogger Tips

Kinda weird too, to be having a dream about an international flight and then the next morning we hear about the thwarted terror plot in London...

Yeah, that def freaked me out! I think I was going to France in my dream though.

Oh, yes...I have anxiety dreams ALL the time...about everything...and I'm getting nervous about comments, too. Did David give you any feedback before he left for Germany?
