Dream Dictionary
 Definition: Dreaming of being amputated brings about unpleasant feelings of hopelessness and inertia. Unable to use hands and legs might give you the impression of passive resistance. You might be trying to deal with a big loss in your life, and you are now starting to realize the extent of the damage and you are trying to slowly wake up from the state of shock you have been living in.
