Dream Zone: The Ties That Bind
I dreamed that I was listening to a police scanner about a house fire. The address they gave for the house was my childhood home! What on Earth could that mean?

Lauri: House fires in dreams often mean you are frazzled. Are you dealing with an angry or urgent situation? This might be a situation involving family, hence your childhood home being on fire rather than your current home. Your dream might be warning you that you are on the verge of burnout. I advise you to take some me-time before you are a burned out, empty shell.
Debra replies: My sister is battling cancer, and I am her transportation to all appointments. My mom has health issues too, and I am her caregiver. I am also trying to retire in the next two months. You are spot on! Thank you.
