Recurring Nightmare

Since the day I graduated high school I’ve had a recurring nightmare.
It’s always the same.
I dream I haven’t really graduated and I have to go back.

I hate the dream.

As I grew older I was also older in my dream and it was harder and harder to fit in.
I would get lost in the hallways, not be able to find the right classroom, come into class late so everyone would stare at me.
Classic anxiety dream.
Over the years I had it less and less and it finally stopped.

Until last night.

Only this time it was different.
When ‘they’ told me I hadn’t actually earned my diploma and I would have to go back, I replied, “I’m ‘effing sixty years old! I don’t care if you think I need a high school diploma or not!”

I’m hoping ‘they’ will leave me alone now!


  1. I am so glad you told them what you think!!! It was about time. I hope you never see them again!

  2. this made me chuckle. I had reoccurring (every night)nightmares about similar stuff and when i learnt about cognitive behavior therapy they stopped within 3 days. Which is great coz now I can sleep at other peoples houses with out frightening them. love your blog

  3. Aww, don't you wish you had said that years ago!! lol.

  4. I have no doubt they will. You tell 'em!


I appreciate your comments!
