  1. I am currently retired on medical grounds. However I keep having a recurrent dream that I’m back at school/collage. In this dream the deadline for a final project /thesis is approaching. However i still have a small piece of work left unfinished. This panics me so much in the dream that I’m unable to complete it. In the dream I’m aware that I’ve had the dream before.
