Dream of the Month (May 1997)
  1. Title: The John

  2. Date of the Dream: 3-12-97 (mailed Friday, 18 Apr 1997)

  3. Dream: I am in a public place like a mall. I go in to use the bathroom, but it is more like an open area with toilets completely exposed. People are just walking by between the stores. I decide I have to use the bathroom anyway, but when I look at the toilets all of them are overflowing with feces and toilet paper. I find the cleanest one and intend to use it. People are still walking by but no one really stops or stares. As the dream ends I have not yet used the toilet, and it is somehow filling up anyway.

  4. Significant life event: none

  5. Personal concerns/issues: none

  6. Associations: I don't know the association, but I found out that my mother and female cousin also have this dream. We did not know this until recently.

  7. Category: recurring

  8. Pen Name: Patches

Dr. Holloway's Comments:

Dreams of searching for a useable toilet are surprisingly common, particularly for women. Lavatories often represent a place where one can be private and attend to personal needs. Being unable to find a toilet except in the open may indicate a lack of privacy (either physical or emotional) in waking life. Finding "overflowing" toilets often symbolizes a situation in which other people's needs take precedence over yours. They may get to "unload" or process their feelings, but when it's your turn, there is somehow no opportunity for you to express yourself, or talk about what you need. Sometimes life seems to overflow with other people's problems, thoughts and conversation. This type of dream is common for women who are in the habit of taking care of others, or whose work places them in the role of caretaker. Although startling, these dream images do not indicate a problem, but may be a signal of the need to place your own needs higher up on the list of priorities.
