Daily Prompt

The Daily Post had a Daily Prompt today called Take Care, and the questions were:

When you’re unwell, do you allow others to take care of you, or do you prefer to soldier on alone?

What does it take for you to ask for help?

And these are my answers to today’s Daily Prompt:

Usually I prefer to soldier on alone.

Here a few things that it usually takes for me to ask for help:

The problem has to be serious enough which it usually is not and/or getting help has to be affordable enough or free which it usually is not and/or help has to actually be available because it is often not available and/or I need to actually qualify for help which I usually do not and/or the help actually needs to be helpful which it usually is not and/or I need to be comfortable with getting help which I am usually not and/or I need to be comfortable with the people who can give help which I am usually not and/or I actually need help which I usually do not.

Dream 1

I got awakened during the night after someone annoyingly and unnecessarily turned on several heaters making the house too hot suddenly which disturbed my sleep and my dreams causing me to forget all of my dreams and to not be able to sleep, and so it took me a while to be able to go back to sleep so I walked around and did a free Duolingo French lesson on my mobile phone before finally being able to go back to sleep; and so now I can only barely remember part of two dreams which do not make sense now because I can not remember most of either dream to properly make sense of them, but I will type what I remember anyway.

All that I can remember of this dream is that it probably took place during the day at my parent’s house, I remember some of the pet cats and kittens being in the dream and maybe I got to pet some of them, and I remember seeing Dawn’s kittens like Pipa and Dawna and maybe Cu-Dale in the dream; but that is all that I can remember of this dream.

Dream 2

My memory of this dream is mostly destroyed and so it does not make much sense and so expect confusion and errors and this dream probably involved: jumping between two different planets, alien dinosaurs and alien creatures and alien non-human animals, Power Rangers, time travel, and was possibly somewhat video game-like sometimes.

All that I can remember of this unclear and confusing dream is being on what I assume was planet Earth inside maybe a house during maybe the day, and there were some other people there including maybe my dad and the actor Jason David Frank as himself and as his character Tommy Oliver (The Green Ranger).

I remember there being several monitors/screens and some other equipment in a room, Mr. Frank/Mr. Oliver and some of the others were going to go to another planet and possibly time travel using the equipment, and I assume that they had somewhat trained and prepared for this.

I remember us watching old video footage of Mr. Frank behind the scenes as his character Tommy Oliver during the filming of Power Rangers, Mr. Frank had no shirt on and he was dancing and doing martial arts stances, and him and the film crew were having fun and goofing around during short breaks between filming; but that is all that I can remember of this old video footage.

At some point some of our group (including Mr. Frank/Mr. Oliver, but not me) jumped/teleported/traveled to another planet and possibly time traveled, and the rest of us watched them using the screens/monitors.

They went to another planet that was in a prehistoric-like state/ time period, one of the people in the group had a mother with whitish colored skin who I think was maybe a scientist and/or had several jobs who once traveled to this planet but maybe during a different time period, and this person’s mother was possibly in the room with the rest of us who were watching the screens/monitors.

The team on the other planet found primitive alien dinosaurs and alien creatures and alien non-human animals on the planet, but for some unknown reasons they started attacking the aliens like it was a video game and/or like they were hunting them for sport and/or like their true mission was to kill them; and I was confused, and I did not agree with this and I said so but they did not listen to me and I was not there to stop them.

I remember the team learning a trick that allowed them to jump from under the ground to attack the aliens, which helped them to kill even more aliens, and at some point I think that they found a crater or several craters in a rocky and dirty area with no grass and maybe you could somewhat see space because maybe the atmosphere was thin; and they found a talking alien but I can not remember what he looked like, he knew the mother of one of the people on the team, the mother who once went to this planet before.

The talking alien was angry and he said that the mother had also attacked him and his planet years ago, he wanted revenge against the mother, and he wanted to stop the team who were attacking his planet now; and so maybe they started fighting the talking alien, and I was angry about this because he and his planet seemed to be the victims of the team from what I assume was Earth but they would not stop.

I wanted to know what was going on and what really happened in the past involving the mother who once attacked this planet, I felt that I had been tricked and lied to and that they did not tell us their real/true mission which now seemed like a kill mission, and I was afraid that they would start a war between our planets and/or kill all the aliens on that planet; and I wanted to learn the truth, and stop them if I still disagreed with what they were doing.

I remember angrily yelling at the mother asking her to tell me the truth and I warned her of the possible consequences of what they were doing which could effect/affect both planets, and she finally started to tell me what happened years ago when she went to that planet; but I can not remember what she told me or what happened next, and I woke up.

The end,
