  1. I had a dream that I woke up in a hospital, dazed and confused. I was approached by my mother, who had told me that they couldn’t save y leg. I removed the sheets covering me and studied this autonomous robot leg that was attached to me. I wasn’t scared, just amazed that they did this without me knowing what was going on, and that it didn’t hurt. I walked on it for a few steps and the leg started to bend the wrong way which was causing me pain. I kept saying this hurts and I was always trying to adjust the position of the leg where it is attached to me.

  2. i mean had this dream that if i walk for a short distance mostly my left leg tend to slow down, like its too weak to move further, i;ll struggle to work . but when i sit and chill or relax i’ll get my legs back but if i start to move again for a short distance it starts again, pleaselet me know what it means and i always see it my my dream..always it also applies to my driving a car..

  3. I dreamt that I saw 3 separate men, each with a different type of break in their leg. But they all were being stretched into this makeshift hospital for treatment.

    The last male was actually mauled by a piranah according to the a lady standing next to me in the dream. Even though he was the worst out of the 3 he had the biggest & brightest smile on his face.

    What does this all mean??

  4. I had a dream yesterday that I was looking at my self in the mirror and saw my thighs perfectly chopped off (from the side it seemed like a knife chopped off some skin) but lots of it and the chopping was deep in real life this could not be possible because there is a bone.
    I was really petrified and then I looked at the bottom of my leg and it was deformed. My mom had an accident when she was little and that deformation reminded me of hers but the chopped off part of both my thighs I really don’t understand, that was what I can remember from all the dream but overall really don’t understand what it means. If anyone would maybe have an idea that would be great thank you!
