I've been in the process of a transition in my professional life.
I accepted another clinical position 6 months ago, but due to many issues, have not been able to make the change as of yet.
Lately, I've been having a recurring dream.
I keep dreaming a male is in my bedroom, staring down on me, while holding a large knife in his hands.
Every time this has happened, I've either fallen or jumped up out of bed.
My wife thinks I'm a nut case.
She always makes sure I'm alright but she's also a little irritated since the crash from falling or the jolt of the mattress always wakes her up.
My kids, when given an update on my sleep visitor, just think it's funny.
Many psychologists have pondered, "what do dreams mean?"
I'm sort of afraid to see a dream specialist to get his/her interpretation of this recurrent dream.
I think I'll just hang in there and look forward to finally making the transition to see if it stops.
In the meantime, if you see me with a black eye or a contusion on my head, it's probably just from hitting my bedside table on the way to the floor.
