Yowsah, dreaming of being trapped in a KH is, to me, scarier than being forced to go out in service. Weird how all this can still affect us. At least we can (hopefully) laugh about it now.
I have found a new belief system that works for me, personally. I have not had a nightmare since I got back to Canada last fall! Decided I would leave the fear behind and live a life of joy!...much preferred!!!
I am happy for you that you have found a system that works for you. Care to share it? Kudos to you for leaving the fear behind. I would love to be able to do the same. I think my motto will be "fear free in oh 3"
nightmares because of a movie can be put into perspective because you would expect to be calmed and told "it's not real". But when "the truth" affects you that way and you're told it IS real and WILL happen... No wonder I can't cope with life.
I wish I could have gotten to actually say more than a few words to you in Dallas. Has anybody ever told you that you have kind eyes? You do, you know, and I had hoped to find out more about what was going on behind them. There just wasn't enough time. Perhaps next year?
As a kid I used to have nightmares about the big A too (still do, actually). And yes, when you are told that they are real and will happen, it takes fear to a whole new level. Especially for a kid.
Thanks for responding, everybody.
