I have been having these particularly disturbing recurring dreams. In these dreams, I am pulling sticky gum? or tar?, or gritty-pebbly putty out of my mouth.
Although I pull it out in clumps and strings, I can't get it all out; I wake up worrying about dental disasters (which is not a completely abstract concept, considering reality), although these dreams do not coincide with any Real Dental Disasters.
Everything I have researched about this type of dream has pointed to the fact that I am feeling or being silenced.
I may be allowing this, but I have been silenced. I have chosen to be allowed to be silenced.
Okay. I will investigate this.
These dreams are stifling me.
They are silencing me.
I have a problem with being silenced.
And yes, I have a problem with being controlled, after taking many careful steps to reclaim my own life.
I will not be silenced.
Which is why I am putting myself back online.
Why I took myself 'offline' is another story, and that will have to wait.
