I had a dream where my teeth were falling out.
…WHAAT? I thought that was just something people used as a dramatic example. You actually had that dream?
Yep and it was wild. It started with pain in my jaw, then I could feel how loose some of my teeth were. Next thing I know I’m taking teeth out with minimal effort because I’m scared I might choke.
Some of my teeth weren’t even coming out in one piece. For some only the top half came out or even less. I could feel blood pooling in my mouth, my cheeks were puffed…Then I eventually woke up waiting for a dentist I know in real life to help me.
I’m going to be honest with you: that’s terrifying.
Is it weird I didn’t think that?
One hundred percent. So what did you think?
I was just glad I woke up, I guess. I also got really curious about what those dreams mean.
Did you look it up?
Yeah, but the answers were all over the place. It could mean anything from saying something I regret; needing a nudge for me to say something; having to make a major decision soon; having trouble sharing my thoughts; stress; a fear of aging; insecurity; grinding my teeth-
So basically anything.
Hahaha, more or less.
Well, all I’m going to say is I better not have a similar dream now that you’ve told me because I’ll be paranoid for days. And I mean it.
I make no promises.
…I’ve never felt more pressure to go to the dentist.
