Serious Dream That I Had. Still Don't Believe In Ghosts. Car Crashes.




It was 4 AM when my wife woke me up last night. I was screaming in my sleep.

I was having a dream that my best friend Jim, that died 9 years ago in a head on collision in Chester County was standing next to my bed.

In the dream Jim was looking at me and he looked sad. I was saying, "Jim, are you really not dead? Are you alive? Answer me!"

And I was reaching for him but he was an inch out of reach. I knew that if I could just touch him I would know that he was not dead.

When my wife woke me up I was in tears because I was so frustrated that I couldn't reach him.

So this morning when she mentioned the nightmare she said that in the night she didn't want to freak me out but reminded me that today is the anniversary of his death.

I still don't believe in ghosts or supernatural stuff but that is a strange coincidence.

JenJen - I told you I was a real person and not a robot.

Dr Zibbs said...

And wow. Looking at my last few posts, looks like this blog is all about my dreams.

Scope said...

Hey, Dream Weaver. I believe you can make it through the night.

And I thinking your unconscious subconscious was working triple duty.

Ghosts usually haunt a place, not a person. In my experience anyway.

Anonymous said...

Not a coincidence. Your subconscious was aware of the anniversary. Don't go in for hoodoo.

Just whistle, you'll be fine. Subconscious, but it's good to know that you actually have feelings, sometimes it's hard to tell.

Peggy said...

Whoa...that was kinda creepy but I guess kind of cool except if Jim is still hanging around you, then he probably knows everything you're doing. EVERYTHING. Chills.

Sorry about your friend, that is a sad sad story.

There is something happening in the spirit world at all times.

That's crazy. We're not immune to these things in our family either. One part of me thinks, "cool, there is a hereafter". The other part thinks "Gawd, am I going to float around freaking people out in their sleep for the rest of eternity?"

The fuzzy ends of my hair stood up.

About 6 hours before he passed, I watched my grandpa have a lucid conversation with my grandma who had passed away about 12 years before him. I cried pretty hard with that whole scene...

diane said...

My heart really goes out to you on this one honey. I'm so sorry for your loss, and the pain that you are still feeling. Maybe there is some nice way that you could remember your friend today, perhaps by calling up a member of the family just to see how they're doing. Hugs. xo d

Dr Zibbs said...

Cowguy - Wow!

Some Guy said...

That would've freaked me out, Zibbs. Sorry about your loss.

Dr Zibbs said...

Thanks Some Guy. It was pretty weird.

Moooooog35 said...

Creepy, yet cool.

But I still wouldn't hesitate to call GhostBusters and nip this shit in the bud, pronto.

Dr Zibbs said...

Moooog - good point.

If it was Jim, I think he would have blown a ghostly beer fart in your face and laughed covering up his mouth with his hand, afraid that he'd spit on you (or afraid you'd look at his teeth). RIP Conrad.

Scope said...

Try not to think about a ghost watching / critiquing as you intercourse your wife.

You're welcome for putting that thought in your head.

Cora said...

Three times I have had a dream about someone and then I found out the next day that they died during the night RIGHT AS I WAS DREAMING ABOUT THEM. THREE TIMES.

Creepy, huh?

If I ever have a dream about you, Zibby, I'll let you know. ;-)

Dr Zibbs said...

McGlinch - I hear ye' RIP Conrad.

Scope - Inter..inter..huh?

Cora - Three times? What the F?? Are you a witch?

Chris said...

Thank god for Scope bringing it back in from the weeds.

A & B said...

Your subconscious knew on some level. I've noticed that on days when I'm particulary miserable for no known reason, it's usually the anniversary of a death I didn't realize. Hang in there, man. And, I'm sorry for your loss. It's strange and interesting how long and deep the effects of loss can be.

Dr Zibbs said...

A and B - indeed.
