I just had an awful dream

I dreamt that I was stuck somewhere with DS due to snow, and for some reason XP was there as well, and I witnessed him having a massive go at his girlfriend, it started off that he was annoyed she "couldn't cope" with DS being in the house (which I think was in his head TBH) and progressed fairly quickly to "I hope you set yourself on fire when you're cooking and die. No, actually, you should set the whole house on fire and kill us all, because that's what you really want, isn't it?" It was SO aggressive. I was in the next room and could see her but not him through the doorway, and I was making shock faces at her, and thinking "That used to be me. I put up with that and now it's her and I can see how fucking awful and insane he sounds and just.. HOLY SHIT." I was getting panicky too and wondering how the hell to get myself and DS the fuck out of there, and whether I could call the police or whether they would think it was stupid, and then I heard typing from somewhere nearby and realised I was dreaming, so I woke myself up and... crap. And then DP was there giving me a big hug and I was just so so so glad to be home. sad

It's relief, darling. Relief that he's not in your life, fucking it up

Agree with Colditz. Dreams are a type of therapy. I saw a counsellor for a long time who every week questioned me about dreams I had had between visits.

The entire story is just far too long to put on here, but the way she made me interpret them completed me (If that makes sense), I now know why I was treated the way I was, I know it was not my fault, I know the treatment I received from the 'baddy' was down to their issues etc.

Take care, ok. xx
