Do you ever have stress dreams? Back when I was teaching, I had total teacher stress dreams, like being late on the first day of school and having no lesson plan. When I had a particularly micro-managing administrator, I would even have dreams of being sent to the principle's office! (Something that didn't happen once during my own school days. ;)
Now my stress dreams are confined to one of two scenarios: missing train connections and rushing around an endless maze of stations and platforms trying to get somewhere, or being late for the airport with unpacked suitcases, frantically trying to throw everything into a suitcase that is too small, while simultaneously the pile of stuff that needs to be packed grows! It's horrible, but always such a relief to wake up and realize it's just a dream.
Apparently the five most common stress dreams are 1). Missing a plane or bus. That's me ;) 2). Losing your car or having it get stolen. I had this one once, back when I was a car owner. 3). Tidal Wave. Oh my goodness, no thank you! That sounds genuinely scary. 4). Being back at school and not able to find your class or locker. Sounds pretty similar to my teacher stress dreams. and 5). House Fire. Yikes! Do you have a stress dreams? What kind?
