Bread Dreams

Sometimes I dream about bread.  Not gluten-free good for me bread, but squishy Italian with the crunchy crust bread, marble rye toasted bread or just plain white bread.  When I went gluten-free I dreamed about bread much more often, now it only happens once in a while.  Usually around the lady time of the month.  It is never as satisfying as I think it should be. 

The other night I had another one of these fateful dreams… I was using plain old sliced white bread to sop up some delicious gravy looking food substance.  What I was using the bread to sop up was not anywhere near as important as the fact that I was enjoying some delicious, gluten-filled, light and fluffy bread.  The bread squished between my teeth and got stuck to the roof of my mouth, just like any good white bread should.  Once I had finished eating, I realized the mistake I had made.  Oh goodness, that was real bread!  Gluten-Filled Bread!  BIG NO NO!  I felt so guilty for eating something that would make me feel sick.  How could I make such a mistake?  To make matters worse, in comes my dream husband (who looks a lot like my actual husband) and he says to me “What did you DO?” in a very demanding, incredulous way.  The dream guilt feels heavier with the dream feeling of disappointing my loved one…

I woke up with a bad ache in my heart!  Not only will I now have a stomach ache from eating the bread but Panda is mad at me too.  How could I DO that?… at which point I remember, it was only a dream.

Do you ever have dreams so vivid that you wake up thinking they are real?

    I have dreams like that sometimes, and chocolate is usually the guilty culprit. It doesn’t make sense, though, because I eat chocolate all the time and don’t feel guilty about it in waking life. 🙂

    My daughter and I both have Celiac disease and when I was first diagnosed I use to dream of food all the time. I usually would dream of pastas that I couldn’t find and wake up upset. I thought I was going crazy at first. I don’t have those dreams as much anymore but my daughter still does. She dreams of being in a pizza place with friends and devouring whole pizzas. 🙂

    It must be so difficult to have to give up real bread. No wonder you dream about it. I don’t know if I’ve had dreams that left me feeling guilty, but I’ve definitely had dreams so disturbing and real-feeling that I was slow to let go of them, even after I had awoken. Hate that feeling! And I’ve also had dreams that I didn’t want to give up because I loved them, like when I dreamed I was with my parents who have been dead for many years.
