in my dream my husband (who died 3 months ago) was holding me a prisoner and decided to kill me by cutting my wrist/arm making me bleed to death. he sliced my arm and i remember telling him that it was ok. i was not upset about this but i secretly started pressing a bandage against the wound to try to stop the bleeding or at least slow it down. my husband was not anything like this in real life, and this is not anything he would hve done to me
nothing it just happened yesterday and there is noone i can talk to about things like this. i dont want ot upset our choldren with this
Hi, I am happy to help you with interpreting your dream. It seems like the themes you describe - of death, fear of your own survival, and of wanting to live are actually about your grief about surviving your husband's death and about your distress of being emotionally so distressed by his death of fearing being consumed by it. The image of your pressing the bandage to keep yourself alive indicates that despite your grief and fear of such, you still have the will to live and will take care of yourself for such. While this might have been a frightening and confusing dream, it is actually an empowering one.
I hope that is helpful. Please let me know if you have any questions.

You are welcome.
