A Nightmare while Napping

19 Jan

It’s probably not normal to have a nightmare while napping.

I dreamed I was traveling with a group of friends. We were in a building–oh, hell, this was weird. Okay, first, I’d just found out that I was probably pregnant. I was freaking out and hoping it wasn’t true. In a shop inside what looked like an old wooden building, I went in with a female friend, and I was frantically wandering the aisles–it looked like a tiny drug store. There were thermometers that resembled pregnancy tests. I kept seeing those thermometers and thinking they were the tests. First, I saw them on display, then I saw them in many rows stacked in back. I don’t remember finding the pregnancy testers.

I do remember deciding that if I were pregnant, I’d get an abortion, then I regretted no longer having health insurance.

After all that, I was in this different, deeper part of the building with a small group of friends. We stood in a ramp-like corridor talking, but I forget about what.

Soon I wandered and was separated from the group. I wandered around inside the building, which seemed huge.

I wandered into a room noisy with people. It was carpeted in white. I was anxious around these people and wanted to get out of there. I headed toward a staircase, but soon I stepped in red stuff on the carpet and looked down, and a paramedic or someone like that was bending over what looked like a dead person, or at least someone who was dying.

I backed up, trying not to stand or step in blood, and overheard that there was a shooting.
