So, if any of you have ever lived with your parents as an adult, it dredges up interesting feelings. (My parents are great by the way- and always have been.) But I have started having these crazy anxiety dreams that are totally reflective of when I was first REALLY going out on my own and still desperately leaning on my parents to fix everything.. Like not when I was on my own but still on the dole, you know? Like completely financially independent. Like last nights dream for instance: I moved to another state and got an apartment for the first time, but instead of renting the sensible basement unit that was safe (albeit a little dark), I rented the outdoor unit. Yes, the “open air” unit with three missing walls. Imagine my horror at my stupidity when I came home from wherever I was and realized most of my stuff had been stolen. Not to mention that it had started raining and it was pouring into the “room”. I also had resorted to clutching a can opener in bed in order to protect myself. And who did I call to help me? My dad. Then I woke up in a cold sweat.
