I've not been sleeping so great for the past week or so, you know how it is. Your exhausted but when you actually get into bed you can't drop off and end up staring at the ceiling for hours thinking of better things you could be doing with your time.
Last night this was made worse by quite possibly the worst nightmare i have ever had. When i awoke from it i sobbed for a good hour, and anytime i have thought about it today it has set me off crying again. I warn anyone who is sensitive to use their judgement as to whether they wish to read the content of the dream. I know if it were someone elses i wouldn't want to read about it.
I dreamt that Munch had been naughty doing some trival toddler thing and had to be punished by the people without trial. She was behind a barrier and i wasn't aloud to get to her. They were planning on using like a dunking chair on her (so she would be sat about 8 foot in the air on a chair and when a lever was pushed it would tip, dropping her into a very deep vat of icy water) if she survived that it would be proof of her crime and she would then be beheaded. I could see all the equipment laid out in like an assembly line in the room behind the barrier, but she was being held in like an ante room at that point. I remember rushing to the cafe in the next room and argueing with the staff to let me use their phone, when they finally agreed i called a lawyer who was telling me that she shouldn't be punished witout a fair trial. At this point i was screaming at my hubby to go and tell them to not go through with it as the lawyer was demanding a trial. I was still on the phone when he came back and i asked where Munch was now. He replied that she was about to be dunked, i started screaming at him telling him he was supposed to be stopping them, but he said that they wouldn't behead her but he didn't see anything wrong with dunking. Hubbys mum who had appeared next to me was saying she'll be fine she can swim can't she? I started screaming and trying to get to the room while people were trying to restrain me while yelling 'STOP, she has to have a trial, she can't swim she will drown.' All the while terrified that she would either drown or they would go ahead and behead her anyway.
It's still upsetting me now, i'm just hoping it will fade with time. As it is i'm scared of going to sleep tonight incase i have another one. Normally i'm not one for nightmares but i just want a completely dreamless sleep tonight.
