    Used to,many years ago. Haven't had it in a LONG time. Also used to have nightmares about driving and trying to stop to avoid an accident but my foot was frozen on the gas pedal or the brakes wouldn't work. Talk about waking up with cold sweats!! Sure glad those nightmares are over.

    Heavens no, couldn't think of anything worse. I was taught by nuns who could be quite cruel.

    I occasionally dream that I didn't actually graduate (I DID!) because I dropped out of one last important class.....but never told anyone. The school knew, of course, but none of my friends did. And then someone finds out years and years later and I'm panicked and feel awful and diminished. What the heck is that all about?!

    I wake up wondering what in the world I've left undone in my life that this dream keeps recurring......for years! Not a pleasant way to start a morning. :oops:

    Jan in VA, who usually has really great dreams

    Not high-school but work- that I forgot I had a certain patient and didn't take care of them. Awful!!
    Also that I forgot to take care of one of my babies (all grown up now)
    Similar, and I'd love to figure them out.

    I had a HORRIBLE high school time, so I thank my lucky stars I never dream about it. Another thread is talking about Leslie Gore and the music of that era...The music is the ONLY reason I'd want to go back :)

    On a positive note, I have had many fun dreams about school days. I suppose it is from reconnecting with so many of my school friends on Facebook, since I moved away. I have the long-term memory of an elephant, so I can recall so much more vividly than some. It's sometimes sad, because it makes me a bit homesick for the carefree, fun times of my younger years. My adult life has been very difficult in comparison to then..

    Yep. Jan and I have the exact same dream. Sometimes it is a presntation I have to make that I didn't prepare for, etc. I read somewhere that this is a typical dream for women who are actually very organised and prepared. Our deepest fears are letting someone down and the world finding out we are not as prepared as we claimed. Funny how I have so many UFOs and don't care what anyone thinks!

    Yes, I've had the same dream. Also, about lacking one class to graduate. Any ideas on what all this means?

    Sure do, I will dream It is finals week and I have never been to that class too. I also dream that it is at least half way through my shift and I find out there is a patient I was assigned to and have not even seen.I can understand the pwork dream almost but not the school/college dream. By the way I lothed school, I would NEVER want to go back.

    I used to have a recurring dream of being late and not being able to move fast enough to get to school. Forgot about that dream until you brought up this ?

    Nope - never wanted to revisit that era! I have enjoyed my life much better after that. As a freshman - some of the boys decided to stand up on the school bus and call me "Ugly Red" over and over...That devastated me and I didn't get involved in school much after that. Loved my art classes and German. I dated, but just a couple steady guys... Heard through the grapevine later that those guys really liked me, but they were off my list!

    I do this all the time. Sometimes it's time to take finals and I realize that I haven't been to class all semester, sometimes don't even know which classroom I should be in. Frequently can't find my locker. I hate this kind of dream, you get no rest.

    I have the one about the phone number too. And it's always an emergency call I'm trying to make.

    No, but I do remember when I was in high school and had dreams/thoughts then about my schedule, going to wrong classes, etc, etc. Glad those days are gone.

    Yep! Never can remember my locker combination, also that I am in different locations in school, getting from one place to another and that always seems to involve the PE locker room location, going down a stairwell, or crossing over the auditorium. Strange !Also about trying to reach someone but having to get through water and I can't make any headway. Or the one about my teeth falling out and crunching on them or spitting them out. UGH!! Read that one is a sign about the fear of getting old. Well, I'[m old now and some of the teeth have gone, and I don"t dream it anymore. LOL
