I keep having this recurrent dream:
I am in my yard, in front of my house, alone and something feels strange. When I pay more attention, everything is under water and I can see the peak of the rooftop, which is out of the water. I hold my breath and begin to panic. Then, a woman whose face I can never see, (sometimes her voice is one of a friend, someone I met or a completely strange person) and she tells me to calm down. I keep looking for a way out and know that swimming is not an option. The woman tells me that it's ok, because I can breathe under water, which seems highly impossible for me to do. Yet, I try to take small breaths and can indeed only feel the air coning in and not the water. I try to come closer to her, still fearing to take big breaths and sometimes she keeps talking to me or just dissapeared when I look away trying to find my family or friends.
This dream usually comes when I am really stressed or afraid of something. I usually wake up because I feel that I take water in and can't breathe any more, which also projects on my body, because I wake up breathing heavily.
