Makes me think of spring when I buy my flowers. lol... I love geranium. I use to have all kinds of scented ones. I had a plant nursery. I had ivy ones and short ones. One smelled like sour apples, one like strawberries, even rose scented ones. I sure do miss that.
It sounds like he could be wanting to reconnect from his dreams. I am not a dream interpreter, but they say, your dreams are your fears or desires. This could be a desire. And the fact that he shared that with you is a good thing too. It seems so hard when somebody that you care about retreats back into themselves. We have a tendancy to take it personal, but it usually isn't. It just feels that way. The person is not retreating from us per say, but from everything. They are going into themselves in a way. They aren't directing at anybody in particular, they just withdraw from everybody. They are so focussed on their situationn that the rest of the world doesn't exist to them. That is sad. It sounds selfish, but I don't think he can help it. Just as it is happening to you too. It isn't your fault that you are retreating, you just are, and it is for protection of your feelings. Do what you need to do to feel safe.
I would try to get hm to go to a doc, or AA. In AA he will find people who are going through the same thing he is going through.
I truly hope that things do get better. I hope that you can get him some help soon. Maybe some tough love is in order?
