  1. Keep dreaming about throwing up piles and piles of tacks… I never get all of them out but just keep throwing them up while terrified.

  2. I dreamed about my nieces playing push pins and they were already been prick with lots of pins on the body specifically from the shoulder to arms and I tried to stop them and then they blame each other. My aunt was prick accidentally also and after that she was acting like a baby and I just carried her like my own baby as well. Lastly, I saw my cousin and her family but my cousin is the only person who spoke to me and told me to stop my nieces in playing the pins. I told her I did, but they wont listen. The she ask “who put those pins there anyway?” . I kept silent because I realized it was my push pins on my bulletin board they have played.
