So I get that these are anxiety dreams, I do. I am therapist, for crying out loud! But I can’t stop having these dreams where I’m cheating on FI. Rather, I know I have cheated, and my dreams are all teen-emo “I have to tell him it was just kissing it doesn’t count OMG I love him sooo much!” In one of them I literally was over-analyzing and then! Bam! Smack dab in an advanced math test where I know none of the answers.
My wedding is in 10ish weeks. Any suggestions on how to deal with these until then? And please, you guys, please tell me I’m not the only one doing this!

This might sound a little wacky, but what are you eating before you go to bed? Whenever I eat pizza for dinner, I have crazy dreams. Only pizza. Only for dinner–lunch is OK.

I think everyone has dreams that make them uncomfortable. I used to feel super guilty about them (ex-Catholic here fulfilling all your stereotypes), but these days I just chalk it up to my subconscious tossing random things together and I don’t blame myself. It’s hard though, because these are not the types of dreams you really want to talk about to people you are close to. I used to have horrendous dreams and I try to tell myself a pleasant story in my head before falling asleep. It usually derails scary dreams before they start.
