Dream Zone: Get in the Game and Win
I had a dream that, while driving, I was rear-ended by a hit-and-run driver. I drove off, feeling sore, and shortly after that I was T-boned by a semi truck. I could feel swelling, blood dripping, and pain. I just popped ibuprofen and continued driving to my destination despite needing medical attention.

Lauri: Physical pain in a dream is usually an expression of emotional pain from real life. Did something or someone from your past whom you thought you had put “behind you” suddenly cause you emotional pain recently? The semi coming along and hitting you after being rear-ended suggests some sort of additional mess came along shortly after this painful issue from the past resurfaced. This, understandably, has you feeling “run over” by life.
