Why would We have This Dream
There are various reasons why someone would be dreaming about being sick and they are as follows:-
A Constant State Of Unhappiness
You could be having this dream because of an issue that has been bugging you for a long time. According to you, this issue could be impossible to solve and it is really making you feel unhappy and resigned in acceptance of the situation.
If this is the case in your waking life, just remember that every problem has a solution somewhere. No matter how difficult it may seem to implement the solution, don’t give up trying to correct the situation. If you kept trying eventually you might solve the issue once and for all.
A Sense Of Hopelessness
You could also be dreaming about being sick because you have lost hope about a situation in your life. You could be whining a lot without taking any action to solve this problem affecting you.
You could also be making up excuses for why you are not taking action about the problem. The problem could, for example, be your excess weight.
You can correct the weight, but since you are attached to the sweet and greasy foods, you find yourself falling back on them even after you have made progress.
This could result in that feeling of hopelessness, that you can never shed that weight. The truth is that if you really put your mind to it, you can solve the problem and the feeling of hopelessness could be a thing of the past.
Someone You Care About Has A Major Problem
This dream could be happening because someone close to you is experiencing a major problem that seems impossible to solve.
This problem could be affecting this person deeply that it is also causing you anxiety and you worry about them.
The person could be your spouse, boyfriend, best friend, close relative and so on. Try talking to this person and think of ways that you can solve this problem.
A Possible Danger To You
Sometimes this dream could also be an indication of a possible danger close to you. It could be that someone or something is trying to hurt you.
It would, therefore, be in your best interests if you became vigilant and less trusting of those who seem too close to you.
It might not be a good period to do a major investment because the dream could also be a sign of great loss in your finances and it definitely hurts deeply when hard-earned money goes down the drain.
