We have doxycycline provided to use as an antimalarial prophylactic. One of the side effects, in some people, is vivid dreams. I have had some prophetic dreams in my life, but while taking the doxy, it's hard to tell what's prophetic, and what's just chemically induced.
Last night, for instance, I dreamt that I was standing by the edge of a pool, while my former wife was struggling to swim, and failing. I don't swim well, but I eventually jumped into the pool, stood underwater on the bottom, and pushed her up to the edge of the pool. Jeez.
I wanted to be able to be friends with my ex, but where the result of The Bad Stuff early in my life was for me to be angry, the result of her emotional baggage was fear. I've managed to lose most of my anger, but she hasn't lost her fear, and she seems to be afraid of me, for absolutely no reason. So, despite my desire to be friends with her, that doesn't really seem possible. I have removed her from my MySpace friends list, and stopped including her on my emailed updates..but with this dream, I felt I needed to at least check on her. Why must some people be tortured souls? Why can't we all just find healthy outlets, and get on with our lives? Some people just seem to be stuck, for lack of a better description, stuck in a miniature hell they can't find the exit to, confused and frightened. I feel for them, but you can't stay too close, or you'll get stuck with them. Ultimately, people have to save themselves.
