I am responding because you really want somebody to respond to your dream. I have a few ideas that may work.
It seems that your dream signifies a loss of power. I believe this is especially true in terms of your ability to communicate. I don't know if this would be a bad thing for sure. It depends on whether you feel constrained by others or by outside situations. It could also be a change going on that is more internal to you. The loss may be of power, of a sounding board, or of something that gives you those things that you need to feel good about who you are.
If this relates to an internal struggle, it may be a positive change - though in your dream it made you uncomfortable. Change is always difficult, even when it is invigorating!
If this is an external situation or person, you may need to find a way to assert yourself or redeem your belief in your own worth. Once you find an appropriate means to deal with the situation, you may find that you regain respect, both from yourself and others. If you act in a reactionary way, you may lose even more ground.
Hopefully this is not so off base that I sound like a nut (though I am somewhat...)
