So, I have super vivid dreams and I often talk in my sleep but it gets out of hand when I start to dream about spiders. Yes, SPIDERS.
It’s been going on for years (4+) and it started to get really bad (more like pretty freaking hilarious) whenever I was in college. My SO (newly bf & gf at the time) came over. I fell asleep on the bed while he watched TV. About 15 minutes after I fell asleep I jumped out of bed and told the SO that there was a spider in the kleenex box (which was on the night stand, right next to my face). I told him to take the kleenex box into the bathroom, to find the spider and to kill it. I was dead serious. The SO, not knowing any better goes into the bathroom and is checking out the kleenex box. No spider. I go back asleep, another ten minutes rolls around and guess what? Another spider. This time I saw it next to the wall, by the bed frame. I made him lift up the mattress and get the spider… No spider.
That’s when it all started. I’ve seen spiders on my pillows, sheets, on the wall – you name it. I’ll fly out of bed, rip off the sheets and flip on the lights. I am usually “asleep” until all the lights are on and I’m patting down the bed looking for the spider. At that point, I will wake up and go back to bed. SO knows that I’m just crazy now and usually will play along – which makes me wake up. These happen probably weekly, if not more. Sometimes it’s when I nap, sometimes it’s when I’m in bed. It doesn’t matter. I see the spider, I flip out and throw pillows, rip back covers and turn on lights.
Well… Last night I woke up THREE times with dreams. This time it was SNAKES. I am terrfied of snakes. I cannot even stress how scared I am of them. Well, the first two times I jumped out of bed and flipped on my nightstand light. SO wakes up and tells me to go to bed (I’m saying: Snakes! Snakes! Look at the snakes!). The third time I ROLL over him and get out of bed. I turn on his light and rip the covers off of him. LOL. I can’t help to crack up as I write this. He was pretty fed up (not really mad) and told me to go back to bed in stearn voice. I guess that worked because I went to bed for good.
Anyways – anyone else have crazy dreams? I’m shocked the SO hasn’t turned me into the pysch ward yet 😉
