Strawberry Letter 23: Will My Dreams Come True?

Good Morning Steve, Shirley, Tommy and Carla. I am a 38 year old woman and I have been married for 5 years. My husband and I have a 3 year old daughter and our lives were perfect….until about 7 months ago.

I started having very vivid dreams about my husband. In these dreams I can CLEARLY see my husband engaged in sex with a man. I never had a reason to suspect that my husband was gay or bi and I don’t understand why I keep having this dream. The dreams are recurring – usually several times a month – and I always remember them. They are so vivid that I can see his partner’s face clearly. This is not a person I recognize or have ever seen.

Because of these dreams I cannot have sex with my husband. Every time we get intimate, I get sick to my stomach. I keep seeing him with this man. The last time we tried to have sex I actually vomited. There are no other issues in our relationship but this is putting a strain on both of us. Sex is very important to both of us but I do not know how to get past this. I keep thinking that maybe my dreams are true. I have not told my husband about the dreams….help…what do I do?
