I then experience the hell of the negative side of the coin.
Not nightmares, mind you.
I don't get nightmares. There's nothing bad which happens.
It's just...bad dreams, sad dreams, dreams which the people inside are in a situation and seek resolution but never find it because one thing after another keeps bombarding them--not in the heroic way, of a new adventure. In the cruel, twisted way of deliberately screwing with them.
And because I live my dreams through my characters.
That means I am being deliberately screwed with.
Suffice to say, I did not sleep well last night, and even this morning my naps were not very eventful.
I woke up multiple times.
And even when asleep, the sleep was poor.
Today was, notably, not pleasant as a result.
Thankfully, it's at an end now; with luck, lightning won't strike twice.
