I have recently had a very vivid, clear dream of a situation that happened to me in the mid 1980’s. Back then, I partied and drank too much. I had many drunken encounters with equally as intoxicated party girls that I can barely recall.
The dream I had reminded me of one of these circumstances, that I didn’t even remember. This dream was horrible; and it has insinuated itself into my lack of memory of the real incident.
Now, when I think of this situation during my waking moments; I feel, remorse and shame. I can’t even be sure if it really ever happened like that.
Is it possible that a realistic dream, about a long-ago situation, can replace my fuzzy memory of the real past?
