Question by bigfut999: What is a potential interpretation for a dream where my fingers get bitten/masticated?
This past week I have had one element recur in multiple dreams. Whenever I am attacked (sometimes by animals, sometimes by people) the attacker keeps going for my fingers and gnawing at them. This is the only injury I have been getting in my dreams. Any suggestions to what this could mean?
