I had an interesting dream this morning. Interesting in the sense that it was about my own mental health. Also, it is long. Sorry! Spoiler: Long dream is long The first thing I remember was I was driving. The roads were snowy and I was having trouble concentrating. So, when I was coming up on turns, my brain would just kinda drift and not pay attention, then I would end up going too fast and my car would end up sliding too much and I'd miss my lane. There weren't many cars on the road, so no accidents, but I just kept on turning and readjusting in this one intersection until I decided. Nope. I need to go home, so I went with one of the lanes I did manage to successfully get into(not my original intended one) and started home. My brain was still such a distracted flaky mess that I had to concentrate to make sure I was in the correct lane for the direction I was going(actually had it right in this case). As I was driving down this road, which circled around this frozen pond, I realized that I wasn't safe enough to drive on this kind of road, so I parked my car in the first little side pocket I could find and walked home(it apparently wasn't far). And as I was walking around this circled road, I was still flaky-brained and ended up falling on to the frozen pond. I carefully made my way to a side of the pond that I could grab onto the road railings and climb out. When I stood up, the ice started breaking under my feet and I kinda started sinking. I recall seeing that there was a little warning sign that said "DON'T BREAK THE ICE. IF BROKEN THE POND WILL TURN INTO THIS" and it had a very cliche little pond picture(as seen in the summer or something) with the cattails and a duck. Anyways, I pulled myself out using my upper body strength(hahaha I don't have any, but it was nice of the dream to give me some). So I continued walking home with my legs freezing and wet. I ended up going through a mall or something. The first person I met stopped me and gave me some candy, which I was initially annoyed at, but then I was appreciative. And then I was walking in lanes(like car lanes, but walking?) and my brain went flaky on me again and I ended up in a lane I didn't want again. I was so frustrated that I was like "fuck it. I will drive down this stupid road. I am sick and tired of always turning around". And some how transitioned into driving again! It was more like a highway, and I remember going too fast(brain-flake). Then I was getting really frustrated because there was some big football game or something going on, so there were these big groups of people just marching in the road. And I was going too fast, and I was frustrated because they were in the road, so I was swerving a lot to avoid them. Anyways, I eventually end up losing control and flying out of my car. I tried to control my tumble because there were still a ton of people around, but I end up lightly tapping some poor girl on the head with my foot mid-tumble. They were sitting at a picnic table in the area between traffic lanes. I started apologizing and explaining that I'm not doing well and I'm just trying to get home. And the group was pretty cool about it and they helped me gather up my stuff and helped me find my car. But then I heard my phone go off, and it wasn't on me. One of the other guys had it. I demanded it back and he put it down his pants. I ended up wrestling with him and getting my phone back. But then he started talking to me about the brain-flake and he understood and described my problems. And it all just clicked and I trusted him. I think he made some comment about how he tried therapy, but he didn't trust them. He made a pun calling them "thistle-piss"(it's a weak pun. Blame my dream brain) whilst he peed on some near-by thorny plant. And I think he gave me a ring of this thorny plant and it was important or something? Like a symbol. I wore it like sash and I started my way home. Like the things he said made me feel safe? Like I was so glad to have met this guy and talk to him. I can't explain it, but that's where the dream ends. Anyways, the reason I'm writing about this is, the brain-flake is a thing I feel, a lot. It's not nearly as bad as it is in the dream, but when I woke up I was like "Yes. Yes this is true. This is relevant. This is me." And it just meant something? I don't know. Feel free to ignore my brain ramblings! xD Also, I figure this is a good place if any one else wants to talk about their dreams!
