am on Champix (trying to give up smoking) and it makes dreams all the more vivid. I've also just split up with my partner of six years so I'm in emotional turmoil. My dreams at the moment are mad - it's like entering a multimedia experience zone with images and ideas flashing in stroboscope fashion at me all the time.
Last night was a case in point. I'm at home (or rather the sinks about which I'm talking are). Don't know why I'm there. The sink in my bathroom is filling up with dark brown (very dirty water), it passes the brim and it keeps filling, stacking itself up freely above the sink (it's not pouring over the edge). It's about to reach the level of my bathroom mirror and I'm panicking - I've yellow rubber gloves on. I stretch over the tower of water and plunge my hands in it - down to the plug hole. The water seeps inside my gloves. I pull the plug and the water goes down leaving dirt and debris all over my arms and my sink.
Then I'm in the kitchen - not a porcelain sink - it's stainless steel. The same happens.
And then, for some reason - I've picked up a pint glass in the kitchen and filled it with water to drink. I drink it but it tastes weird. I look back at the glass I filled with water and it's full of very dirty baby new potatoes floating in the water.
