A Dream of a Future Pandemic of Pestilence: Prophetic and Vivid

by Levi
(Louisiana)

Today I had a dreadful dream. The dream started with me lying in a hospital bed in a large quarantine facility. There were many beds in this place with people occupying them.The people were in agony with IV tubes attached to them. The room must have had about 60 beds each having a person (including myself) suffering from a dreadful and lethal type of influenza. The symptoms were clear and eerily vivid. The weakness, fever, coughing, body pain, vomiting were overwhelming. I then remember walking into a huge bathroom facility with toilets everywhere. No privacy was available. All the toilets were stainless steel. I had the strongest urge to rid myself of diarrhea. I noticed people of all ages, even good-looking women ridding themselves of diarrhea. It was shameful and people were embarrassed, but we had no choice but to use the bathroom and deal with it. I heard people using the bathroom and the loud sound of loose defecation and the moaning of people. It was awful. I noticed myself in my bed surrounded by the others and I was looking out the window into a parking lot. I then noticed a large group of women dressed in uniforms coming into the quarantine facility. I asked one of them if they were here because they were sick, but one lady replied “no, I am here to offer you your last rights.” She then asked me how long do I have left to live. I replied “Only a few days.” At that moment I rallied the crowd to beg the doctors to administer codeine. At that time a wide array of nurses worked to administer pain medication and sedatives to ease our discomfort. Thats all I can remember.

A Dream of a Future Pandemic of Pestilence: Prophetic and Vivid NEW

I think the part where you asked for codeine at the end of your dream means you like pain medications and even if you don't take them now, if you only had a few days to live, that's what you would want more than anything. I've had dreams about pain medications I used to take. I think it's normal to dream about something that makes you feel good. The people dying in your dream could be a memory of you sitting in a pain clinic surrounded by all of those people who are miserable; sometimes waiting for hours to be seen by the doctor. The sickness in the dream sounds like withdrawl from pain medications which are horrible and have the symptoms that were in your dream.

Sounds like bioengeneered plague from north Korea. Not to be concerned but I would worry about starter homes at $400,000 and a sack of groceries costing $75.00 bucks
