I am sure we have all had nightmares about losses that have happened or things we are afraid of. But has anyone had a nightmare about a loss that has not yet happened (and maybe never will, or not for a long time?) Some of these nightmares happen to me in broad daylight. IE: I think/feel like my mom dies and I just start bawling for no reason. Sometimes this happens to me at night and sometimes during the day and that feeling of loss is so real. That grief is so real at that moment. While we were foster parenting my son, I had nightmares that he would be taken away. The feelings are so intense and I sit there bawling and all I have to do is remind myself that none if it happened! I had lost my 13 year old dog 2 years ago from kidney failure and it just tore me up for so long. I fell in love with my new puppy, Kona, and ended up getting her, but keep having these feelings like I am going to lose her. This is not all of the time and don't think it is directly affecting my life, but I guess this "fear of losing those I love" can temporarily take over.
