Pins & Needles
The setting of this dream experience was at the weekend gig, where I dispense medication to mentally ill people. There was a situation where the client’s medication draws were moved around during the week on my off days. So now I’m on the job and I was having a hard time locating individual client’s medication. Clients were lining up outside the med room waiting for their turn to get their meds. I was taking a while because I couldn’t locate where some of the client’s med draws were. Some of them started to get impatient; after all mentally ill people are not patient people.
I saw a young client. He was sitting on the lower door. I told him he could not stay sitting on the door, to get off it, He did not want to cooperate; he answered that he just want to stretch his toes. But I made him get down, the boy was mad, and we had a shouting match. Eventually I told him if he doesn’t move on and walk away I’ll have him taken to the psych ward.
I resumed giving out the meds. Then I saw that same boy and an identified person were sitting on the floor at the door where I give out the meds. While I was giving out the meds, I felt as if pins and needles were being inserted into my feet.
Then someone came to the Med room to get their meds; but I could not find her med draw. I kept looking. I asked my co-workers if they can help me. But my shift partner was not helping. She only wanted to look at the client’s record books. So I called in the supervisor and management to help me locate the client’s medication.
In the meantime, I started pulling the needles and pins out of my feet. There was a burning sensation. There were multiple pins and needles that were inserted at multiple locations on my feet.
