- Wedding: November 2013
So im about 6 days out from my wedding and for the past three weeks or so ive been getting really bad nightmares about my wedding day. In one of them we changed the date last minute, but didnt tell our celebrant, in another It rained, and in another one It was just madness – The best man didn’t show up, there was a stampede of horses through the ceremony (what the?), and a few other ridiculous things.
And then theres the other problem – every second night or so im having dreams about an ex boyfriend. One in particular – the one that i never got closure from, and havent spoken to since we broke up 7 years ago. I don’t have feeling for him by any means, but for some reason he’s on my mind.
They’re not any kind of dreams in particular, just random things but he’s just always in them. And ontop of that when i try and go to sleep at night I can’t sleep for hours on end. Im just stuck going through all the details, things that are already finished, things that aren’t. I have EVERYTHING written down, so its not like im coming up with new ideas, ive already got all this stuff sorted, but it wont leave my head!
Everyone is telling me to make sure i get lots of beauty sleep, but how can I? I either have wedding day nightmares, dreams about ex boyfriends, or cant sleep at all!
How are you other bees getting through this? I didnt realise I was so stressed. Up until this point i’ve just been methodically getting all the lists finished, and organising. Nothing too stressful, and was getting very good sleep up until about four weeks out from the big day.
I’ve told hubby, and he does his best to calm me before bed, and lets me talk about all my silly dreams and everything, but theres not alot I can do short of taking a sleeping pill at this point.
Any help bees? Are you having the same experiences?
