Have you ever had one of those dreams that haunt you for a long time afterward? I rarely remember my dreams but I had one the other night that was so vivid, I am still thinking about it. I dreamt that I had a baby. I was actually in the delivery room and when the baby popped out, I just got up and walked out of the room. I didn't look at my baby, I didn't touch my baby. I didn't cuddle my baby. I didn't cry tears of joy. I got up and went back to work as though I had never had a baby. The rest of the dream was alternating flashes of me at work acting like there was no baby and my baby laying alone in the nursery at the hospital just waiting for someone to come and care for it....to love it. This went on over several days because I was wearing different outfits in the parts where I was at work. My baby was abandoned for days! The people in the hospital were taking care of all the other babies and ignoring my baby!
I woke up feeling absolutely awful about that dream and started crying. I still want to cry when I think of it. What kind of person am I to have a baby and act like it doesn't exist? Where was my husband? I just feel so awful when I think about it! What does it mean?
