EXAMPLE DREAMSExample dream : In one dream the dreamer is concentrating deeply putting together a jigsaw, whilst an autistic man is with him. In real life the dreamer was due to escort a friend to chemotherapy. The dreamer expected to sit on his laptop, quietly concentrating, whilst his friend underwent chemotherapy. Doing the jigsaw meticulously, was symbolic of his plans to sit quietly concentrating on his work. However, the dreamer quietly worried that he would not be able to get on with anything as his friend could be highly disruptive, just like the autistic man in the dream.
Example dream : A dream where the dreamers sister loses her concentration was linked to the dreamers own reduced ability to concentrate. He also noticed this change in his sister and wondered if age was catching up with them both. He had noticed a big change in his own health generally and wondered if this was something that would continue.
