When I was 19 years, my parents died in a car accident. It was after we had been sent to my uncle’s house that I started experiencing these things. I will wake up abruptly in my sleep to room full of smoke. It is after a minute that I will realize there was no smoke anywhere. It happened to me continuously for about two weeks before my uncle’s house caught fire. The other experiences were when I was 26. I will wake up in the middle of the night mourning my co worker.
Sometimes I wake up wearing black at his funeral. I would also wake up crying at the graveyards with colleagues mourning him. The last scare before he actually died, I woke up reading his obituary poster in town. He died Dave, and there was nothing I could do. It’s happening again and this time I wake up in the event of strangling my wife to death. Two days ago, I woke up about 2:30 choking her to death. This dawn, I was strangling her in my sleep again till I woke up to see her sleeping peacefully by my side.
Dave, we are not experiencing any marital issues. Our marriage is so far solid. We have been married for 6 years and have 2 children. Is this a conversation to be discussed with my wife, looking at my history with continues nightmares? So far I have had dreams about my wife 3 times already in the past 8 days. I am not a violent person but I am scared it could lead to something for this dream to manifest. The fire incident at my Uncle’s, his wife forgot to put off the stove. My colleague’s death was through an accident on the Cape Coast road when he was returning from Takoradi. I am worried about why I am having these dreams about my wife.
Could she be doing something that will force my hands to throttle her? Is this something I’m supposed to be analyzing?
