Background: I am 29 and have been in a relationship for six years. I very much want to get married and begin planning for a family. My boyfriend is, should I say, hesitant about marriage (engagement, kids, money, etc.) We have lived together for almost two years.

In a long and confusing dream, I was at the top of a ladder heading down, like you would go down stairs. I was extremely scared and it was traumatic. The ladder was wobbling and I had been drinking a little. There were very nice guys at the bottom encouraging me to come down and not to be afraid. But, they would not lend their hand to assist me.

I was grateful to them for encouraging me but frustrated that they did not offer any physical assistance. The dream continued on. I don't ever remember coming down the ladder. I felt trapped.
