Near the anniversary of my mom's death especially, but at other times, I'll have dreams that Mom actually punked us and that she's actually alive. I've gotten used to having these dreams, and try not to think about them much while I'm awake, because I know what it means, and I'll start bawling.
However, a few days ago, I had a very weird variation on the dream. I dreamed I got my mom back, and I went on a trip around my old hometown with my uncle (Mom's more - younger brother) and his wife. We stopped at the mall, and I found that the guy I have a massive crush on and whom I consider a friend was now gone - vanished (he works at the movie theater in the mall I used to work at). I yelled for him, but never found him. I woke up saying his name, and feeling even worse than I normally do after those dreams. I still have no idea what it all means.
