I am curious to know if anyone dreams of themselves in a wheelchair or with any kind of assistive equipment like walkers, canes, lifts, etc. and, if so, do you remember how long after your illness or injury those dreams begin? I know this may be an odd question. For quite some time now, I have been having a similar dream theme over and over. The theme itself makes sense to me, even though I am disturbed and unsettled when I awaken.
I'm going to work in different settings and continually getting lost or searching for where I'm supposed to be or forgetting how to do something very important that is part of what I am supposed to know how to do. In all of these dreams I am still walking. This morning I dreamed that I went to talk with my colleagues to find out in advance where I was supposed to be working in a few days, and to let them kow that I wouldn't be able to perform some technical skills that required both hands because one hand was not functioning correctly.
This dream is the first that I have had in which I have any kind of physical disability. I have not yet dreamed of myself in a wheelchair or even as having any trouble walking. Not that this is an earth shattering issue at all. Just curious. (I know I think too much!!!)
