“In My Dreams…..”

When you wake are you still the same person that you were in your dreams? I’m never in a wheelchair or using a stick……and I think I’m forever 20!!!

Forever 20!

In my dreams…..

I walk, I run, I dance

I laugh, I love, I cry

In My Dreams forever 20


In my dreams…..

I have a fit, healthy body

I feel forever young

My hair remains untinged by grey

My face unmarked by time and pain




In my dreams….

I am an independent working woman

A fully functioning wife and mum

I cook and clean (yes, really!)

I drive my car

I can even run

Dream 3


In my dreams…..

I stand up without fear of falling

I eat without a second thought

My memory works and my head is clear

I shower and wash my hair


Dream 2


In my dreams……

I am the woman I want to be

In a body that is whole

Unmarked by surgical wounds

Or the bend and flex of illness.

In my dreams.


In My Dreams

  1. Oh Claire, this is so painfully sad and true and poignant and I feel I could write something so similar about who I am ‘in my dreams’, too. You’ve expressed this so well. Beautifully written  ♥

  2. I am fascinated by dreams… for approximately the first 15 years of living with my chronic illnesses, they were never present in my dreams, with the exception of the dreams where I was fighting with medical professionals.. but even then my mobility aids were never present… Since then I have made some changes to how I view and live my life and now both are present in my dreams. The only difference I can think of is that I came to an acceptance of having to use mobility aids where before I hadn’t…. BTW love this post!!!
