This time last year, I was suffering recurring nightmares. I had a pretty good idea why – I’d come to the sudden realisation that I had no idea what I wanted out of my life, and was stressed, adrift and confused. Just the sort of thing to breed insecurity and nightmares. But, y’know, I got through it. After a while. And I have slept the sleep of the just thereafter.
But for the last two weeks, I have been suffering nightmares, every single night. Not recurring ones, and not ones that point to anything specific. Just bad dreams. Every night. I am getting slightly sick of this. With any luck, it’s just the stress of jury service, and things will be back to normal next week. God, I hope so.
