Last night I had the most interesting dream. It began with me sleeping at my current boyfriend’s parents’ house in Boston. He had his own bedroom. In the dream I remembered that I had to come back to New York. His parents and family suddenly came in to enjoy a huge meal with my boyfriend and I before I departed. I remember feeling like I was pressed for time. Suddenly, I looked to my wrist and there was a pimple. I popped it, and instead of the usual result, I pulled a worm out of my wrist. As the situation became really serious, I remember someone, a doctor or somebody, pulled a significantly larger worm out of my wrist. It was as if I had only pulled a small part out in the beginning and this was the same worm. The doctor (or whoever he was) began to act scared and concerned. Then I remember him pulling a large worm out of my mouth. This worm had teeth, and while he was removing it, it bit a piece of my lung, and part of my lung was removed with the worm.
The doctor (whoever) was around my age 23. And he told me that I lost a Quarter of one of my lungs. Then all of the worms were put into a bag. And I remember people talking about the bag. They said it weighed 35 lbs.
Then I was on my way. They gave me that bag to take back to a doctor in New York for research. I was afraid that the worms would escape. So, for some reason there were multiple layer of bags to ensure that they would not escape. By the time that I got to New York the bag weighed around 5lbs. Then I woke up.
A little information on the current situation:
I am a 23 year old gay male, and I just recently revived an old relationship with an ex. We have been going out for about a month now. Things are going OK, but it’s not too intense. He lived in New York until recently, when he was forced to move back to Boston because of a lack of an apartment. Now he wants to move back to New York, although he doesn’t have an apt, and he wants to stay with me. I don’t feel close enough to him to have him move in with me. Also, for the most part I don’t really think that I am with the right person. I have a very strong crush on someone else, and he may suspect it. The crush I have on this person is very instinctive and it blows the current boyfriend out of the water.
Could you please give me some insight on this?
