    Dream: (DFLN thread) (self-memo: be sure to re-read Sageous comment and my own reply)

    Was at some therapist's office. Looked to be a typical rented office space. I went in and saw a doctor "Hodstatdr Lester" (note, this is my original spelling in the original entry), he insisted gently that I call him Lester.

    He was a well-built man, with a mostly round head (bald?) and with a deep voice. He wore glasses.

    We sat opposite each other on identical chairs. Lightly stained pine frames with blue textile cushions (deep blue?).

    He began by asking me what he could help me with and by saying remarking something about whether or not it would be worth our time, mutually.

    I talked for a little bit, I don't have a recall of the specifics but then I said I had two unresolved phobias. He seemed to nod compliantly and asked me to go on. I remember thinking about what I wanted to say, and then saying it, an unusual process for me during conversation.

    "Well, one of my phobias is what's on your shirt." I said
    "Pockets?" He said with a look of surprise.
    "No" I replied, making a motion with my index running along my sternum.
    "Ah, you mean buttons" He replied.

    I interrupted with "Yes" because I had(have) an aversion to even saying the word at times.

    "Well, you have a [unintelligible prefix]-phobia" He then stated.

    I also had in mind that I wanted to talk about another unresolved phobia. But oddly enough I couldn't remember what it was (and still can't).

    In any case, I said that this phobia name sounded familiar, and just as we were about to start discussing it, I woke up.

    Original notes:

    - While I felt like I could trust him, hesitantly, this feeling was mostly further compromised by the fact that the chairs were oriented in a way that made him be slightly my left and I to his right. This could have been corrected easily when I sat down, by simply turning the chair in a different angle.
    - In addition, the room was large. 6x6 mtrs or so at a guess. But apart from our chairs it was a completely empty office. The floor was carpeted?
    - Finally, there were two windows. One behind and left of the therapist (from my pov) and another one out of sight in the far right corner of the room. It was day time and so the two windows were the only light sources.

    Scraps:

    Mentalist dream, something about young children getting their fingers stamped with hot seals? This was part of some imagined thoughts at some point.

    Something about being in my old home's kitchen, the light was on. Absence of light and darkness from outside. Odd. Mom and T were in the kitchen? Something about cooking, and then a bat flew in and mom notified us, after I'd already spotted it. It was light brown in colour, caramel coloured even.

    One of the very first dreams? Was in a tank in some place near a warehouse and I was shooting civilians with tank shells, because they were being uncooperative somehow. I remember troops on foot scattering from a rear formation to take control of the civilians and the immediate area.
