Welcome to my blog. I hope we can help each other endure the pain of the addiction of a daughter or son.

Haunting Dreams

In the middle of the night I heard Beth call out.........Daddy, Daddy please. I sat up in bed and realized that it was a dream. This has happened to me before when something awful has happened to her.  Of course, there were also many times when awful things happened that I did not have a clue.

I will not borrow trouble. I have plenty of trouble that I own without borrowing any. I will not be seduced by my fear. I said a prayer for God to please take care of her and release me from my obsession.

I went back to sleep. Thought about the whole thing briefly in the morning and not again till now which is after work and before dinner for me. DH just came in and he has not heard from her.

Hope you are all doing well. I am just about to visit your blogs.


  1. Ohhh, dreams can be so disturbing. I hope you have sweet, sound sleep tonight!

  2. I can relate to those dreams, I have them periodcally too.

  3. I have these type of nightmares repeatedly. I find it interesting that we all seem to be having them? I wonder if we have them more often that parents with "normie" kids....

    I hope you have a restful and peaceful sleep tonight.

  4. I have those dreams, too. I had them even before my daughter was a source of concern. When she was a baby, I had a recurring dream that I would turn my back and someone would be wheeling her away in her stroller. Or I would stop at a house to ask directions, and turn to find someone driving away my car with her inside. To me, it reflected anxiety more than premonition. It's always disturbing when it happens, though. I always wake up with my heart pounding.
