Sometimes when I am starting to drift off to sleep I go into a trance, I was laying here and I was staring at the floor, the more I let go of my mind and thoughts the closer the floor got in my minds eye. I finally dozed but the one thing I hate the most is a nightmare I cannot understand or interpret. I had a dream about rattlesnakes, they were everywhere like little gremlins. Everyone who came across them would hold still and the snake usually left them alone. I was in a bar, meeting someone I have never met before yet I knew exactly who they were. They didn't use the same name I knew them by so I never introduced myself. I had a seat next to them and my dog climbed up onto my lap as well. Then out of nowhere a rattlesnake appeared. I stopped moving and closed my eyes, but it bit me in the face and when it bit me my dog reacted and she got bit as well, I could feel the venom swelling up in my face and I knew it was only a matter of minutes before me and my dog would die. So I took a run for it and I got bit again and again. after that everything went dark and I don't remember anything else. Can someone please help me with interpreting this dream?
