    I have been having bad dreams with the same

    theme in all of them. They all involve my mom dying. The most recent was a hour ago. We were at my grandmothers house and a man broke in and killed her. Another dream was a few days ago. She was in the basement frozen and dead. I can't sleep.

    When I was 6 I had a dream

    that the moon ate the earth, and it was honestly the most terrifying thing ever to my 6 year old self. And to make things worse someone had flushed my favourite shoes down the toilet, so as soon as I woke up I put on those shoes and didn't take them off for quite a while.
