Thanks, brain?

So I was SO exhausted I fell asleep at 7:30 last night. I ended up having a weird ass dream where I was having a stroke and slurring out “Where’s your truck, B? Where’s your truck?” as some EMTs tried to load me into an ambulance.

My husband hasn’t owned a truck in over a decade, y’all.

Later on, after I woke up at 3:30 this morning and eventually fell back asleep, I was old. Like..really OLD. And I was in a nursing home. I decided, in the middle of a party (I don’t know why there was a party but there was), I needed to go drown myself in the en suite (in suite?) bathtub in my room. Apparently Tess and Monica from Touched by an Angel just had to be there…to help me drown. It was surreal. So..thanks, brain? I don’t know. Brains are weird and I don’t think we’ll ever understand them.

  1. I love crazy dreams. The thing that always gets me is how they seem so plausible in the moments after you wake up, but as you get up, have a wash, make a drink, and so on – they seem more and more ridiculous lol


    1. Oh it didn’t even make sense when I woke up. I was like, “Shit, WTF brain? Don’t forget this, though so I can write it down later to see if everybody else thinks it’s as crazy as I do.”


  2. Nighttime anxiety brain is definitely the worst form of anxiety brain. I spent three hours trying to get to sleep the other night, only to fall asleep and then immediately have the nightmare where all of your teeth are falling out AND you can’t dial the phone correctly to get help. Nighttime anxiety brain was like, “Oh, you were planning on SLEEPING? Hahahahahahaha!!!”

    I hate that guy.

    1. The teeth falling out one is VERY real for me, unfortunately, since I have crap teeth that I’m still trying to get fixed, one stupid freaking tooth at a time since I can’t afford more than that usually.

      1.’s entirely my own fault, so I have only myself to blame. I went through a period in my 20s where I drank around 3-4 liters of Dr. Pepper a day, which is not good for your teeth or your waist line. And I hate dentists so I didn’t even GO until I literally had NO other choice because I was in so much pain all the time. Come to find out that my wisdom teeth were not only badly impacted but rotting out as well. And over the last 5-6 years or so, I’ve had root canals done and caps put on most of my teeth because they are THAT bad. I need an implant where I had to have one pulled a few months ago, but I don’t want to pony up the eight grand (yeah..shocked the FUCK out of me to) to get it done. I have a fakie I can slide in place, but it hurts to wear and the plastic bit that holds it in place presses on the roots of my two front teeth through the gum, making them feel like if I bite down on anything more susbstantial than Cool Whip, they’re gonna snap in half. :-/ So I don’t wear it.

      2. I’m so sorry to hear it. I can’t imagine how awful that must be – like a neverending revolving door of dental work. It sounds like actual torture.

        I’m amazed at how much they charge for ONE implant. My mother needs to have all of hers done and the estimate was around $50,000 – and that was ten years ago! She just never had it done and eats soft foods – nothing more substantial than Cool Whip!


      3. I go twice a year and they usually fix one or maybe two things at a time at one of those appointments in addition to the usual cleanings and xrays and shit. Insurance (or at least our old one) only covered about $800 a year outside of cleanings so I’d get one thing fixed and then wait till it rolled over to the new year and get something else fixed.

        I’ve probably had ten grand worth of work done in the last few years and I’m *mostly* not in pain anymore about 95% of the time. When I am, I just go swish with warm salt water and that usually helps, along with a couple ibuprofen.
