Lately, I was observing some pretty strange “developments” in my life. And started asking myself at one point, am I slowing going Corona-Crazy?
But let me tell you first, what happened, maybe you know exactly what I mean.

But at night, during my sleep, oh boy, that’s a totally different scenario!
I’m experiencing extremely vivid and weird dreams, sometimes even nightmares, and wake up restless, confused and exhausted. People, places and events from the past show up in such a clarity, and often I wake up confused, what’s reality, and what has been just a dream.
Seriously, it concerned me! One bad dream, once in a while, ok….but almost every single night?!
