I had THE most horrible dream I've ever had in my life last night.
I dreamt that I was out late at a friend's apartment, and left really early in the morning...but on my way to the subway I had to go pee really bad, so I went in the back door of this building that had public washrooms in it. It was really sketchy, and not surprisingly there were a lot of street people in there - having slept there for the night, using the sinks to wash up, etc.
On my way out I heard some shuffling/commotion to my left and I looked over into a shower stall area and saw my mother packing up her things into a shopping bag. No blankets or anything - it looked like she was sleeping on her clothes. I called out to her and asked why she was there, and was hugging her and crying...she looked awful. Her clothes were filthy and she had snot on her jacket and in her hair. She didn't even seem to recognize me or seem interested in coming with me to take her home to get clean/warm/fed/looked after.
I woke myself up because I was crying so hysterically.
