For the past month or so, I've been having upsetting dreams in which I lose one of my senses. This sudden loss of sensation doesn't happen suddenly; it's actually gradual throughout. I barely notice it in most dreams until something triggers it (like, I won't notice that I can't hear until someone is trying to talk to me, won't realize I can't talk until I try to say something, etc).
Anybody have a theory as to what this might mean? It's much appreciated.
