Phew, what a weird dream just before I woke up this morning.  I dreamed I'd been arrested and was in one of those holding cells you see on TV with a dozen others and a toilet plunked along the wall... no walls, no curtains, no privacy, no nothing.  Not only did I have to go but I had to empty my cup in the dream.  I was relieved to have such an item in the dream instead of having to ask the guard for a disposable -- and now that I'm awake (and slogging though my first cup of coffee) I'm still thankful that cups actually exist and that I use them.  Funny, even in the dream the reactions of my cell-mates were realistic.  A few huddled together muttering, "Nasty!" but I could tell that the majority were intrigued -- whether they asked me about it or not.  :o)

Woah, this is weird -
Last week, I had a dream that I was in jail and needed to change my cup. All of a sudden all these people were there, including my fiance. So he told everyone not to look so that I could change my cup :-) And he kept telling them it wasn't a big deal.

WOW! That's too cosmic!

And how sweet of him to be your Knight in Shining Armor to protect your dignity. :o)

Hey! That's not a bad idea. Not necessarily donations but marketing to them and/or their families.

After two whacked-out cycles (I have just become perimenopausal) I'm not sure when I'm due again. I had last Sunday marked on the calendar with a question mark so I suppose it could happen at any time. Or not. (Shrug!)

Was my period dream a sign? Or just echoing that I don't know?

I've had public cup emptying dreams as well! Never in jail though, it's usually been a case of being unable to find a toilet with a door :S

OMG, that has been a recurring theme since I was a kid! I need to go but either there are no doors, no walls or the toilet(s) I find are clogged and overflowing. I almost never actually get to go in my dreams.

Same, "now with overflowing cups!" just to add to the mental anguish of not finding a loo.

Do you wake up to pee a lot? Cause I do, and I find that just before I wake up I am dreaming about either holding it cause I am somewhere there just isn't a toilet at all, or doing the potty dance cause whatever toilet I know of is really far away. It doesn't help that in real life I am afraid of public restrooms, and they have to be just perfect, or I'll go to the next one, no matter how far away it is.

Nah, I've always been able to make it through the night -- unless I was out "drinking" that evening. ;o)

When I was a little kid, I dreamed I had to pee and I when I peed in the dream, I peed in real life too. I remember my father put my mattress outside to dry and I was in a panic that the "whole neighborhood" (even though our house was well hidden by the bushes along the road) would know why it was out there.

Ever since then, I've been afraid of "pee" dreams -- and maybe that's why the toilets in my dreams are never usable.

As for public toilets... they don't scare me. My outside job only has a porta-potty that I have to share with a dozen guys.

I've had jail dreams before, with the dredded full-view toilet... Scary. Not sure why, but I always have really wacky dreams when I'm on my cycle...

This was my first jail dream. But not my first cup dream. And each time, I've been very happy for my cup instead of having to deal with disposables. :o)

I've never had jail dreams but i've had full vew unisex toilet dreams. Basicly being stuck in the middle of nowhere with people your despratly trying to be respected by. Before the cup they normaly used to end badly.

Your cup to the rescue!!! :o)

Yup the only thing worse than being teased by a load of guys in real life is being teased by a load of guys in a dream. I always used to dream up the cutest guy that showd intest in me before and didnt when i had the bad red dread moment.

Just to clarify the red dread moment is when you litrealy have no idea that anythings wrong and your happely doing something like tieing a rope to a tree or walking down a path or something very dull and someone informs you that your suddenly very heavy flow has soaked though your clothing.

I've had a few cup dreams (not in jail though) but I just put it down the weird things that happen to you when you're pregnant... I'm definitely not needing to use my cup right now!

Congrats on your pregnancy!

I have always had weird dreams -- many of them with complex or multiple story lines -- but this was one of the rare ones involving my cup. And its message was definitely, "Phew, I'm glad I have one!"
