I had the same dream for 20 years, until one day it stopped. Every night that I could remember any dreams I had, I always had this one short, emotionally confusing dream. I am walking down a small, dark alley alone. I start to see a light (a cheap, dim, metal overhead light, as if to light the back door of a small business). I walk closer, and see a figure wearing a black (sometimes red) hoodie, with the hood over their head.. back towards me. The person is facing a brick wall, and oddly close to it.. nose probably touching the bricks. As I approach, they start to turn around, I can almost see their face! Then, I wake up! EVERY TIME. I wake up confused, scared, and angry. Until one day!! I hadn't seen my siblings since I was very little (it had been almost 20 yrs)... we were all adopted. Then! One of my sisters found me on facebook.. and since then we've found 4 more siblings! I haven't had the dream since we met (it took me a while to realize, but when I did I was not surprised) The faceless person was gone, I could now put a face to my family.
