The Neverending Nightmare


Describe a dream you’ve had more than once.

I have recurring dreams about being at work, even though I’ve been retire about 8 years, and not being able to complete my assignments on time or messing up my assignments. My supervisors from my various jobs are in the dreams and I am so afraid of letting them down. I try so hard to get the work done but something keeps happening to interfere with the work. I wake up very depressed even though I know that it is only a dream and I am no longer employed. I guess I have a fear of disappointing people and maybe I fear I disappointed people I worked for. I always did a good job but had to retire on disability and maybe I feel some guilt over that. Maybe I should talk to my therapist about my dream. It happens very frequently that it’s disturbing so I might want to exorcise it for my nightly sleep.

About mairedubhtx

I am a "youngish" grandmother of 15 year old twin granddaughter who has recently (is a year "recent"?) adopted Islam as my way of life, much to the consternation of my family. I love to read. I love to write. I am writing a book about my decision to revert, about my spiritual journey. I have another blog about stories from my youth, my parents, and grandparents. It's a blog so my OCD daughter will not be able to throw it out when I die. I suffer from depression and anxiety, for which I am treated, so my posts may be a bit dark at times. C'est la vie.

    Maybe you should talk to your therapist if this is a recurring dream. There must be a reason behind it, and one cannot afford nightly sleeps disturbed in this way.

    I hate recurring dreams… I used to have two as a kid and only when I quit smoking as an adult. Only as an adult was I able to alter the outcome of the dream as time went on.
