I rarely have nightmares, and for that I am grateful. Since my sister's cancer diagnosis, however, I have found myself having more frequent nightmares which cause me to wake up in sheer panic. Last night was one of those. I had been sleeping soundly and I started dreaming of the character Wilson, from the TV show House. I had this dream about him screaming at the top of his lungs to everyone around him that he hated cancer, and then his face morphed into my face screaming that I hated cancer, and I woke up. It probably doesn't sound too terrifying to read about, but I could tell I was emotionally upset in my dream with no indication of why. I then found myself having to calm myself back down to get back to sleep. I'm not sure what the dream was about, but I know I didn't enjoy it. I think my fears of my sister's upcoming colonoscopy and surgery are seeping into my dreams.
Cancer is terrible :(
