In church, I always sit in the back. I like to get out real quick because after benediction, it's like a feeding frenzy, and I can't hear well in all the chaotic loudness. So anyway, on the back bench, this young new mom sits down with this adorable baby(huge blue eyes), and starts nursing it on her breast(which I am not aware of yet).
I just happened to look over, and Wuh!!
So she says, in the middle of the service, "Your a Nurse Practitioner aren't you?" See how my (pulls baby off with end-suction sound), and...my ears feel like their on fire, and I can tell my face is like 50 shades of Red..."Is this normal?" Pointing to an obvious engorgement, and saying "they just ache, and are so painful."
I whisper the obvious problem, and what causes it so on and so forth, ..when she grabs my hand and said, "see, feel how tight..."
Then, for the first time ever, I wake-up from a nightmare sitting up really fast, panting, and heart-racing in terror as I realize it was just a nightmare!
I haven't sat on that back pew since that dream!!! I got online that night to look up the dream on a site that supposedly explains dreams deeper meaning(for $2.99), and it said this was because I was repeating my work activities in my dreams(an occurrence of repetition, and the girl represented an unmet need to nurture something, and the church meant "hiding or sanctuary." The baby meant a new beginning. I looked up the dream because I was bored and couldn't go back to sleep, and it was a VERY vivid and spontaneous dream!!! So I was both lazy(sleeping), and the dream was so out of character for my thought process. I hadn't thought of any patients, or even church that day. The way the human mind can construct dreams in total vividness amazes me!!!! I go back to sleep and continue the same dream telling her she needs to feed more regularly, get a pump...knowing its a dream now! (But obligated to help:))
Have you guys Nursed in your sleep after a wild day, or answered questions in your sleep?...weird to be so tired, and explaining a medication's side effects in your sleep!!!! Reminiscent of Nursing School:)
