The actual dream I don't remember. It's what happens when I wake up that makes me pause because it's the same thing over and over.
I wake up from the dream I can't remember then I sit up in bed and look at my side table. In my head I know there is something that's supposed to be there, but for the life of me, I can't remember what it's supposed to be. So, I spend a couple of minutes, still sitting in my bed, looking around my room in search of whatever it is I thought is missing from my bedside table. When I can't find it or frustration hits because I can't remember what I'm looking for, I go back to sleep.
The weird thing is that this can't be the dream because I know I'm fully awake when I sit up. It's the same thing. I look at my bedside table for that "thing"--whatever it is--and not seeing it there I look around my room for it.
I don't know why this keeps happening, what it means, or what causes it. Maybe you can share some insight?
What is this missing thing I can't seem to find? *scratches head*
