    Traumatic Hiking Trip

    by , 05-06-2016 at 06:04 PM (498 Views)
    Went hiking with D and a few other people. Itís a hike I recognized, wooden trail spiraling up to a platform. The wood is new. There are black labs who are scared to walk on the planks. Work keeps calling D, telling him thereís an emergency he needs to deal with but thereís nothing he can do since he's so far away. We head back down and the guy weíre with says we have to rope swing across the lake. He says itís crucial we donít touch the water more than necessary because Ďwe would not believe what was growing in thereí. I was completely confused, I donít remember having to do this on the way up. Plus, Iím not wet and I would be if we had done this. I also am carrying a pillow thatís completely dry. I ask someone, ďWhat did I do with this pillow last time to keep it dry?Ē They told me to fold it up and put it in my shirt, so I did. The guy went first and didnít make it far before he went head first into the water. We scoffed, ďso much for not touching the water.Ē D went second and swung out to hip height and waded to the other side. I decided to angle my swing to the left toward the land, so I got minimally wet. When I got to the other side, everyone started getting concerned because the first guy had not come up yet. D was annoyed that he was going to have to dive in and search for him, but then the other lady managed to pull him out. I was in a room and couldnít see what was happening but D started gagging, telling me that the guy was covered in unsightly mud and disgusting debris. He was unconscious so D delegated to me to get the first aid kit. There wasnít much in there besides IV equipment so I grabbed what I could. D wanted a 1Ē IV tape but I explained to him that the only reason I was able to take the 1/2Ē tape from the hospital is because nobody likes to use it, so thatís all we had. People start performing CPR and I leave the room to help. Itís a very disturbing sight, indeed. He looks deformed. Heís blue, has a swollen and bulging neck, and they had to cut off his fingers and toes - leaving strings of rotting flesh in place of his fingers. Someone holds him while people perform CPR. I take my turn at compressions and then he starts talking. D explains to him that he probably broke his neck. I asses his body and itís full of gnarly wounds. They had all been exposed to bacteria. D is now at risk for catching the life threatening bacteria since he handled this guyís blood. Heís irritated about it. I go home and have to retell the story to Mike and sob while I do. Mom says she thinks itís her karma from frequently passing out in front of people. The girl we were with, Sarah, posts about it on DV and I comment about how painful and traumatizing it is to read and remember.

      Ohh layer zero, dream about dreaming, ugh cutting off fingers was that a nightmare or did you just feel like an observer?

      It was a nightmare that I was involved in. I was trying to deal with the traumatic emotions I experienced for what seemed like a really long time (in dreaming time). I wish I knew what it symbolizes

      What are you worried about in your life at the moment? It all seems very frantic, a life and death struggle.
      very hard for me to analyse as I do not know what this senario or people represent to you.

      Well the only person I actually know in real life is D, my husband. He took charge in the dream but he was acting quite irritated. The other two people in the dream aren't real, they were just dream acquaintances. But the man who almost died was acting as our guide in a way, at least before we crossed on the river. And I have been feeling void of course in my life. I am relying on my husband for structure and I have felt afraid and guide-less with some major changes in my life for the past 6 months or so. Not to mention, recent resurfacing of traumatic memories and emotions. I suppose that does make sense. I do wonder, though, what crossing the dirty water represents. Maybe the process of delving in to my own limiting fears in order to overcome them. Thanks for spurring me to really think about it!

      Yes that certainly wood be a potential muddying of the waters, stirring up the subconscious,
      I find my subconscious often tells me things using the most awful puns and jokes, or maybe thats just my sense of humour, and I didn't realise it was quite so awful lol
