Home Sweet Storage Unit?  
I get tired of homeless dreams. It's been a long time since I was homeless--since the early eighties, in fact. Why do I still have so many dreams about it?

Last night at least I managed to find shelter indoors, instead of the more usual sleeping-outside dreams.

I moved into the storage unit! There I was with my boxes of stuff, tucked into my bed all snug. I'd even put a rug down. In the dream there were others doing the same thing and we were all very supportive and congenial.

But I woke up and was like, WTF? I'm not homeless, dammit!

The other annoying dreams are the moving/apartment-hunting dreams. I have moved many times in my life, even in the last few years, so at least I understand why I still dream about it. I am forever trying to find home.

Homelessness is a) a really hi-octane time; b) something that's really scary. I've never been homeless in that sense, but I do have nightmares about it. Nor has my house ever burned down, also a frequent theme of my stress dreams, or been flooded, ditto.
We *are* all in it together. *g*

Thanks. I have guessed that it's become one of my default anxiety dreams but I'm so tired of it!

UGH, house burning down, now that's one I haven't had and hope I never will (knock on wood).

Oh, yeah, that's my go-to anxiety dream. I know I'm in trouble when I start dreaming it.
