A month ago, I crawled under a train that was stuck on the tracks so I could get home. A minute later it started moving. I keep obsessing over what could have happened. It happens almost every night.

Is this normal?

What should I do?

Absolutely NOT crawl under trains. Period!

It can mean many things - the key is what do trains represent to you - does it mean travel - does it mean a very powerful mode of transportation - does it mean restrictions since it can only move on the tracks Crawling under the train could be hiding from a great fear. Put your thinking cap on - you have the answer.

I would recommend some counseling. Sometimes only a few times can help.

I think that if you were brave enough to crawl under the car, you already understand how to escape the wheels if they started moving while you were under there. You probably would have gotten off the track if you were in the path, or waited flat on the rail ties for the train to pass over you safely. I think you had an idea of your options and would have been fine, nothing to obsess over.
