David Troutman and my teeth.

Date Of Dream: 4/23/17


Main Dream Story/Notes:

The dream was long- almost like a movie. In fact, it was very much like a horror movie and I have dreamed some of the scenes before- or at least something very similar. It's hard to describe so I will try to just highlight the main images that I can remember.

I was at a house of some sort, I don't remember the people but they felt like family. I remember being in the bathroom-and it was run down, gross and very strange. There was graffiti and filth in the bathtub and I remember thinking something along the lines of-how can I bathe in this? What the hell happened?

The main gist of the dream was that some kind of evil kept trying to attack myself or the family. I remember seeing a dead or sleeping man-but he looked more like a mannequin or doll. He woke up and either he said or I knew it was "David Troutman"- and in the dream, I knew that meant he was my grandfather. In real life, I do have a Troutman branch starting with my paternal grandmother-I have looked at my records and I (shockingly) do have a David Troutman in my tree but he's my second great uncle- born in 1884 and died in 1975. I am not sure what he wanted in the dream-but he scared the hell out of me. There were other dolls or creatures that kept waking up and whomever I was with, we spent the whole time trying to fend them off.

At some point- when I was in the bathroom, I looked out the window and saw that something was going on with the world- like a cosmic event. The earth may have been slowing down suddenly as everything started shifting and lifting. I was trying to get people in the house to leave but knew it was hopeless as the dust was going to overcome us.

Somehow, I ended up in Braxton County- driving up the long winding road I did as a kid and was pulled over by a cop. I started to lose my teeth and saw bits and pieces of them in my hand. When I looked in the mirror, a couple of my top front teeth were missing and the pieces in my hand were black as coal from decay. I went to a dentist and he kept trying to get me to talk but when I would try, I felt all my teeth mashing together -and they were all loose. I could sense blood in my mouth and I was trying to spit so I could talk but I couldn't get my teeth to line up right. The dentist also seemed evil and uncaring. I woke up about this time. I started to drift back to sleep but then I heard a loud knock on my apartment door. No one was there of course- an auditory hallucination.

Feelings/Reactions/Analysis:

The dream really creeped me out. I remember parts of it from the same kind of dream I have had in the past- from the evil dolls/spirits and the teeth issue. I felt anxious, scared to death and frustrated. I do not believe in the supernatural at all- but this prompted me to work on David Troutman's branch a little. He died September 9th, 1975. I was born September 27, 1975. I wonder if he knew about me at all since he's not that far removed from myself. He would've been my great-grandfather's Troutman's brother-it's possible they might have known about me because my grand mother was still alive then. She was his niece.

I think the dream was about several things in my life: anxiety about my future, fears etc. I am really frustrated in life right now and maybe I am afraid of the worst case scenario happening (end of the world) etc. I'm not sure where my family would come in but the teeth problem, the fear I felt, the cosmic event and things closing in, being pulled over by a cop (which did happen in real life) and other issues...
