Evil Eleven

I am pretty sure I have written on here before about my night terrors, but perhaps not. Those of you who know me have heard my stories.

Anyway – to summarize – I have night terrors and have had them for years. They have gotten much worse in recent years. I have them just about every night. Some nights they are just annoying and other nights they are very distressing. I will have the same night terror for many nights in a row and they get worse every night until I become very upset in the middle of one and then it seems to reset and a new theme starts.

Last night I sat straight up in bed and exclaimed that I had figured it all out – it was all the number 11 that was the problem and apparently the solution was in the basement in the crawl space. I told Luke that I was going to go to the basement. Poor guy thought I meant I was going to sleep down there to not bother him. As I slowly woke up I realized I couldn’t figure out what exactly I was to do in the crawl space and decided to just lay back down and go to sleep.

So – I am really curious about this one. It was so very clear to me that the number 11 was the root cause of all my night terrors and problems.

  1. I don’t know what to make of the number 11. I do totally understand how anyone that has been through all that you have would have nightmares. I really hope a solution can be found that will allow you the peaceful sleep you need and deserve.FWIW, I often dream of driving off a bridge where everything goes black and I can’t see right before the plunge. I then find myself under water and generally wake up right then, freaked out. Since that has never happened to me in real life, I always wonder if I died that way in a previous life (if there is such a thing) or if I am doomed to die that way (much scarier thought!).Rita

  2. I am so sorry for the loss of your son and for your nightterrors. I will be praying for you and your beautiful family.

  3. Was the eleven that caused you all your troubles in a sans-serif or serif font? Perhaps your real trouble is not with eleven, but with parallel lines. In high school, how did geometry make you feel? Did you ever have any trouble with opposite angle congruency?Of course, it could have expressed in binary, in which case your real problem is with three. Three obviously refers to the trinity, so this is probably an indication of your problem with the organized church.Another possibility would be that it is the word eleven and not the number. Maybe you are in fact remembering “A leaven”. In this case, clearly referencing the Parable of the Leaven, “The kingdom of heaven is like yeast that a woman took and mixed with three measures of wheat flour until the whole batch was leavened.” I have a copy of some works by Freud that I am going to be looking at for my on-going investigation into altering what one desires. I suppose I could check out what he has to say in his dream analysis work. Although, two up right lines next to each? I think we can guess what he would say the eleven represented a pair of.Love,JimII

  4. Wow, what JimII says is interesting and maybe very insightful? Maybe it has to do with you’re having two living children and Nathan being in Heaven? (((HUGS))) I still think that you and Luke are the most amazing and strong people and parents I know. Love you.
