Nightmares and dreamscapes.

To dream that your limbs are amputated, signifies abandoned talents and serious, permanent loss. It indicates your feelings of frustration, powerlessness and helplessness. Sometimes amputation may also represent a situation that you have been ignoring and has finally reached a crisis point. In particular, to dream that your arms are amputated, suggests that you lack motivation. Dreaming that you legs are amputated suggests that you are limited in movements and where you want to go in life.

To dream that you injured or hurt your foot, signifies a lack of progress, freedom, and independence. Alternatively, the dream may suggests that you have taken a step in the wrong direction. In particular, to dream that your foot gets cut by glass, then it indicates passivity. You are hesitant or reluctant in taking the first step toward a goal or decision.

I had a rather unsettling dream last night in which I accidentally cut off my foot with a chainsaw. Of course, this didn't cause me much concern initially, and I simply stuck the foot back onto my leg stump, continuing on with my day.

But as time went on, I became more and more convinced that I should seek medical attention for this little ailment. I headed for the hospital, but by then, it seemed it would be next to impossible to get anyone to help me. Panic began to set in as it began to seem that I would not make it into surgery before the foot had reached a state where reattachment would no longer be an option.

Strangely, bleeding to death was at no point a concern.

When I woke from the dream, the sense that my foot was only marginally attached to my body remained. I spun it in circles, and probed the skin around the spot where it had been severed in the dream. I was also unable to return to sleep, convinced that I was going to return to my desperate and ultimately hopeless attempts to seek medical attention.

I'm not necessarily sure that those dream interpretations (which are courtesy of the Dream Moods web site) are an accurate interpretation of the symbols in my own dream, but I provide them for trivia's sake.

So, now I'm waiting to hear of some crisis erupting in your life, or a meltdown or something! Find anything on that site relating to the dreams I told you about previously?

I didn't actually look anything up on your dreams as you indicated that analysis wasn't necessary on them. Besides that, they actually sound more like almost-conscious hallucinations than dreams (though is there really a difference?)

My left leg feels funny today. Like somewhere in the back of my head my brain thinks it should still be severed.

I think I needed more than 90 minutes of sleep last night.

That probly would have been a good idea!! Although, I got eight hours of sleep, and I'm not feeling great either. (I think I actually do better on less sleep - my body does great adrenaline rushes).
