Am I a freak?
So I had this horrible dream last night about my BF. I woke up pissed off at him and I can't get out of this funk. I'm still pissed of and so I scheduled myself to work tonight so I don't have to go home.

I feel like a freak.

I'd say you're better than I am...

One night my DH really po'd me in my dream...

I woke up with him holding my arms tight...

Apparently I sat up and socked him a good punch. He works nights and had just kind of come in and was still awake.

So... um.. ? Perhaps its a sign of some underlying issue?

I don't think so, everything is going great. I've been stressed at work lately. Perhaps it's easier to get mad at him than at the bosses and co-workers.

I don't know, but it's 11am and I'm still so mad. I'm not PMSing, I'm just a complete and utter idjiot.

I agree as I find that I do take my frustrations out on my family.

The catch is figuring out the why part, eh?

I wouldn't stress too much about it... I think it's more common that you would think... it happens to my husband all the time, I think because he has very vivid dreams -- I have to tell him to get over it!! ... And it is easier to show our emotions to those that will understand and forgive us, than co-workers, etc... so I would tend to agree w/you there.

HAHA - I've done it to my hubby a couple of times. Seems like it happens when something wakes me up in the middle of the night and then when I fall back asleep I have rotten dreams and wake ready to skin him alive

As long as you get past it and don't actually take it out on him it will be fine. I find a couple hours of stewing and knitting followed by a good hug and kiss tends to settle me down some.

It happened to me before too! I had a bad dream about my boyfriend and took me the entire day to get out of it. Isn't it strange? Dreams can be weird, if you are stressed at work it's believable you just need to let some steam out, whether it has to do with your boyfriend or not. Don't worry too much!

Why don't you take time for yourself? Maybe all you need is to relax a bit!

Totally normal. I hope. I have awful dreams of Steven leaving me or cheating on me and I'm mad for the day. It does help if he's home when I wake up so he can snuggle with me. But most of the time they happen after he's left for work.

Thank you all so much, you're making me feel better.

I too have really vivid dreams! Color, taste, touch, smell, etc. God I hope I can get out of this funk soon. He just tried to call me on his lunch period, and I can't even make myself take his calls.

I've had this happen a few times before, even woke up pissed at one of my best girl friends one time, but never EVER this bad.

My husband has bad dreams about me ALL the time. He has finally gotten to a point where he tells me about it when he wakes up and isn't mad at me anymore. Give yourself a break though, you can't control what you dream or how you feel about it. Maybe it would feel better to tell him though, maybe hearing him say "I would never do that" might help you get over it.
