I keep having dreams about bad things happening to people. I wake up and get highly anxious because they feel SO real and I can't relax until I know they are okay. This week one was so real I actually had to call this person at the crack of dawn to make sure they were okay..which they were. Sometimes it's not even a dream but a random thought that pops in my head that gives me a horrible feeling something bad is going to happen.
Most recently I dreamed my deceased grandfather told my daughter to tell me 'goodluck at the ER on wednesday'..so of course I have a horrible feeling i'll end up there and I won't be able to relax until Wednesday is gone and I have survived it. It didn't feel like a dream..I woke up and just felt very real and unsettling. I just tell myself, the last dream didn't come true so this one won't either, but these feelings get intensely real.
I don't know when it's appropiate to worry anymore thanks to anxiety. I have bad dreams a lot and have this impending feeling of doom often. How the heck do you convince yourself that everything is fine? How do you have less realistic/bad dreams? I'm so tired of worrying over my health and thinking that I could drop dead of something at any given moment, bads dreams of being sent to the ER on a specific date don't help. :/
