Dream of:27 May 1989 "A Burden"
I was in a room with my wife, a dark-haired woman (about 30 years old). We were having an argument about what I was going to be doing with my life. Although I was a professional doctor, I wanted to write. I told her I wanted to spend a certain number of hours every day writing, and that if she didn't like it, she would have to leave.
She got up and began packing her clothes. I really loved the woman, but I was determined I wasn't going to let her control my life and keep me from writing. She continued packing her things.
My brother Chris (who was our son) was sitting on a bed in the room. He looked as if he were 7-8 years old, and was already bedfast. I told her she could take Chris with her. Chris asked me what was going on and I told him his mother was going to take him to live with her. I loved Chris and wanted him with me, but he was such a burden to take care of. I thought it might be possible for me to keep him for one week and for her to keep him for one week. But then I realized it would be better if she took him. So she was going to do exactly that.
She continued packing her things, until I finally grabbed her and pulled her close to me. I didn't want her to go. But it looked as if it was too late and as if she was determined to leave. And I was determined I wasn't going to give up writing just to support her by being a doctor.
