Dreams & Cancer

Last night I to felt some pain in my hip that kept me up for the better part of the night. Even though I spent much of the day walking and working on the yard, I immediately attributed the pain to a re-occurrence. When I did manage to fall asleep, I had a dream that in the light of day doesn't sound too menacing but left me in a cold sweat (that wasn't a hot flash).

It was simple enough. The feeling of being chased in the dark but when finally reaching the safety of the house, I heard something by the back sliding door so upon investigating the sound I saw a large dark faceless shape standing there trying to open the locked door.

I don't need someone to dissect the dream for me. It was obviously cancer trying to get in. Does anyone else have these type of dreams. I think it was a first for me.

The thought of being stalked by cancer is sure understandable.

Question: Was anything like this in your mind in the preceding day? I heard recently that dreams are usually about something related to the events of the day before.

I'd be interested to learn if that fits for you.

I have some bad sleeping habits but need to get back into positive thoughts before going to bed.

Happy dreams forever, Mary Ann

I've always had vivid dreams, most with recurring themes when I feel like my life is out of control (cockroaches, airplanes, airports, elevators, stolen cars). But nothing compares to the wacked-out dreams I've had since diagnosis, and particularly during chemo. They defy description.

Liz, who's between radiation and chemo and still having bizarre dreams

I just had a cancer dream too!

I am former military, so I was in full military gear and so incredibly clumsy. I was not able to complete my tasks and was letting my teammates down. Suddenly, something grabbed my hip and I couldn't get away. I looked down and there was a metal hand with a strong grip. I looked behind me and it was a human form with no face at all, only long hair, asexual.

I awoke while I was preparing to take action against this creature. I am only worried because it already had me in its grasp. I have to admit that I did not feel fear or panic, I was just trying to figure out how to win.

No question this faceless foe was cancer. I am so thankful I haven't had the dream again. If I do, I will win!

I hope you have only sweet dreams in the future!
