Re: Driving in the dark with no headlights

@chipcost "i'm driving a car, at night, with no headlights on, indeed it seems that there are not any headlights to turn on.  It is pitch black dark."


Gosh the more stories I hear, the more I remember that I have that same dream (I have incredible vivid dreams.) I have this same dream, except that I can't see - I don't know if the headlights are on or not, but my vision is compromised in some horrific way and I am speeding through hairpin turns and the like.

I'm driving a car, at night, with no neadlights on, indeed it seems that there are not any headlights to turn on.  It is pitch black dark. 

I know that this is dangerous.  Anxiety mounts as I continue on, wondering how it is that I'm remaining on the road and when I'll crash into something.  I'm driving based on some sort of 'feel' for the road.  While there are no lights to turn on I feel as though I do have the ability to bring the vehicle to a stop, but I don't.

@ChipCost: If I try to run away too quickly I float off the surface of tthe earth as if I'm in a low gravity environment.

I hate it when that happens LOL

I'm in danger and being chased by unknown and unseen people.  If I try to run away too quickly I float off the surface of tthe earth as if I'm in a low gravity environment.  I have to stop trying to run and wait until I settle back to the surface before I can attempt to run again.  In the meanwhile I'm sure that the bad people chasing me have gotten closer. 

It's a struggle to try to run fast enough to stay ahead of them but not so fast that I float off and lose contact with the surface.

It's the evening before finals and I suddenly realize that even though I've gone to class every day I have not once looked at the text book for the class.

Sometimes I'm panicked about this and sometimes I debate with myself if this is really a problem.
