Hello Dr. Wallace, I have a recurring dream where I have swallowed a drawing pin or paperclip. In my dream I try to stop the object passing down my throat by putting my hands round my neck. When I wake up often if find myself pressing on my throat. What does this mean please?

Dream Meaning
When we dream of swallowing a sharp object, there is a situation that we are finding hard to swallow in real life. Someone is probably making sharp comments to you or you are having a barbed conversation with someone.

Although you are trying not to take these comments to heart, they are making you feel vulnerable. Try and voice your true feelings about this challenging situation and spit out whatever is on your mind.
