Controlling Dreams or Explaining Them Away?
May 19, 2008 7:48am CST
I have a problem with reoccurring dreams about school. I'm twenty-five now. It's been nearly ten years since I left my school but I still have bad dreams about things. For example: having to go back in my uniform because my exams didn't count the first time around, or having to take a test with no time to study. It's odd, I never have dreams like this about college or university, just school. I dream that I'm the awkward girl again and hating life and the people I'm forced to go to school with. I have a bit more gumption than I really did though, and don't put up with things like I meekly used to, but still, they're nightmares. I've tried telling myself that, that life is long over and I'm a different person now, and also that if I find myself in a uniform again, to wake up because it's a bad dream, but still at least once a week I'm plagued with dreams of school days. Has anyone else got recurring dream themes? Have you managed to stop them? Any advice is greatly appreciated as usual.
