Brakes: "He doesn't have control over me. He gives me the wrong signals, or too late. I do my best, but he just doesn't communicate properly with me."
Brakes: "He gets moving so rarely that I don't want to stop him. He tries to use me too often. He really needs to use the accelerator more."
Only you will know what your brakes are saying in your dreams. Try it out.
Interesting, I would do this while awake right?

Of course, it actually happened in real life. My engine shutoff, brakes failed, and I couldn't steer =/.
Damn that is horrible, I hope nothing bad happened to you or anyone that might of been with you....now you got me scared..

I only got diagnosed bipolar recently, and just started on a mood stabilizer last week. Hopefully if I start feeling more stable these dreams will stop.
Anyway, if you think you're bipolar you should get a diagnosis and get on meds, as apparently it tends to get worse over time if untreated. And generic lamictal is pretty cheap, and is a bit of an antidepressant also.
Who would be able to properly diagnose me? Is a general practitioner okay? Or would I need to see a psychologist?
My memories of a corpse,
Mind full of sick thoughts,
And I ain't goin' back to court,
So f**k what you thought,
I'm drinkin' hennessey,
runnin from my enemies,
Will I live to be 23?
There's so much pain.
