My Wife woke me 4am this morning, I was dreaming and calling out in my sleep in obvious distress. What little I recall from the dream was I was being tortured and someone sticking a sharp object into my leg, what was actually happening was I was in real pain and my dream state picked up on my physical pain.
It's not the first time and it is becoming a little disturbing. It made me think that I have might have unresolved issues with my terminal condition that maybe my subconscious has picked up on this (I'm a practical person and I really thought I've come to terms with my end of life quite well), or just the pain seeping into my dreams, either way it's freaked me a little today.
I did call hospital's palliative counselor today, I thought it might be good to talk this through with someone but he said he's not come across this before.
Anyone else experienced this, if you have, how did you deal with it?
