When I was a teenager I had a reoccurring dream. I had all of these warts of my legs. All sizes in colors or red, brown, black, etc. I would see hair on my legs that I needed to shave but was afraid of breaking open the warts and having them bleed or ooze. I would also try to cover them up with stockings, but you could obviously see the warts underneath. I talked to my IC about it. She said that I was trying to make myself look good (shaving) even though my legs were ugly (warts). She said that the dream could demonstrate a deep sense of shame (trying to cover the warts). I don't know where the shame started. Was it when I lost my virginity (basically pressured into it by older guy). I am digging to find out where this all comes from. My neediness. My desire for approval. My desperate need to belong.

Have you tried looking it up in a dream website? I have looked dreams up on more than one occasion and have always found it to be helpful.

Warts

To dream that you or someone has a wart suggests that you need to learn to acknowledge the beauty within you. The dream also indicates self-punishment. You are unwilling to forgive yourself.

This is what I found on-line. It's pretty relevant to what my psych said. I think I'm going to start writing down my recent dreams. Maybe it will help me sort some of this out.

It probably will. When you write it down though write down every little detail that you can remember to look it up later.like colors,shape, everything.

Every time I have done this it has helped me figure out a lot....although some people don't think so, I personally think dreams have a lot of meaning!
