  1. I had a dream that there were long skinny bones growing out of the skin of my big toe. The bones grew then turned into branches that had small fruit growing from them. In my dream it scared me and I was freaking out, but then i closed my eyes and calmed down. When I opened my eyes again my sister had clipped the longest branches along with my second toe. But there wasn’t any blood. It’s as if my second toe just never existed. Can anyone tell me what this might mean?
