I've been having recurring nightmares recently--they involve my teeth crumbling and falling out of my mouth. It's super creepy, and in my dreams I try to actually force my teeth back into my gums. Of course, that doesn't work out too well, and I'm left feeling anxious and freaked out, covering my mouth with my hands.
So, I looked it up to see what that means. The site BellaOnline says there are multiple reasons why people have this sort of dream, which is apparently WAY more common than I realized. According to the article, the loss of my teeth in the dream, coupled with my anxiety, indicates a fear of transition and change.
This makes perfect sense to me. I'm going through some serious transitions right now. My book just came out a couple of weeks ago, and though I'm happy about it, I'm also stressed and worried about how it's doing. It doesn't help that I'm a total control freak. LOL
In addition, my day job is getting sent overseas this year, so I'm extremely nervous about my pending joblessness. I am, however, searching and applying for jobs. Plus, I'm writing more proposals to try to sell another book. Basically, I'm hanging in there, trying to believe and hope that things will work out.
So, do you ever have recurring dreams? Are they good, bad, scary, and what do they mean to you?
