Freakish Dreams

It has been a freaky few nights lately. I've been having some really weird dreams for the past few nights. I wouldn't say it's as nightmarish or creepy as the one I talked about earlier this year but let's just say it's not exactly something you would want as your dreams.

I wouldn't say they were scary dreams and definitely can't say they were nightmares either. I didn't wake up breaking any sweat or anything, the dreams were quite calm and felt real in more ways than one. It definitely ain't no Nightmare on Elm Street, that's for sure.

Let's start with the most recent one. I can't remember all the details but I was outside a building where some hostages were being held. The 'terrorists' were threatening to wipe them out with some biological weapon if demands weren't met. The next thing I knew, I saw the hostages dropping one by one like flies and strangely I didn't find the scene horrific in anyway. I just woke up like nothing happened. In reality nothing actually happened but somehow I find it amazing that I do not feel anything about something so terrible that my brain could come up with.

It's not exactly the first time I've had a dream like that. In a previous similar dream I was supposedly in the midst of a nuclear strike. I was inside a skyscraper surrounded with glass windows and had a great 360 degrees view of the surroundings outside. Suddenly I felt a tremor and when I looked outside, I saw an orange mushroom smoke developing on the horizon. I turned around and there was another one! A few more followed and the next thing I knew, I 'died' and woke up. A little overkill with the amount of nuclear bombs dropped but freaky anyway, no? Maybe I've been watching a little too much of 24. :P

Alright, now let's move on to the more interesting dream, well at least to me. Honestly, I find this dream very fascinating. Why? Because the dream was about me being diagnosed of having a huge tumour in my head. Yes, a growth in my brain. Yup, brain cancer! Can you actually believe someone would actually have such a dream about him or herself? I even had a CT scan in my hands showing where the lump is and trust me, the lump was huge!!!

That dream actually explains a lot. The constant headaches, temporal eyesight problems, slower brain processing power and many others. Maybe one of these days I should just give my trusted medical doctor a visit just to be sure. Now, here's the strange and interesting part. Somehow, I just don't feel anything about the thought of me having brain cancer. No fear, no worries, no feelings, no emotions. Of course it would suck big time especially when my brain is one of the organs I'm very fond of, but I just don't seem to have any worries about it. Maybe it's the thought of me having insurance coverage that quelled my fears but still very strange, no?

My dreams have a freaky way of coming true so I just hope these don't end up on the list of realised dreams. As much as I love the thought that I may have some kind of superpower, I would prefer these dreams to remain dreams. I mean who would actually want any of these dreams to come true, right?

Happy Halloween everyone and hope you don't get any nightmares or freakish dreams tonight! :P


  1. me hopes that none of your freaky dreams comes true too :(
