Stress drama about work... three years after retirement
Almost every night I have a stress dream about work. I worked for the DoD as a civilian for 35 years.
I do not have any financial worries. I am a little bored in retirement but I think that is a conscious choice. My wife and I enjoy doing new things and traveling.
The almost nightly stress dreams about work is something I thought would pass with time... that does not seem to be the case. I often dream about a different person I worked with in some stressful situation. The situations do not reflect historical events... rather exposing a rather active and creative imagination that seems to highlight stressful situations. I occasionally still have the college test or situational stress dream.
Other than these stress dreams, my life would be as close to perfect as it could get. I just need to figure out what they mean and how to stop them. I read that this might be an unresolved emotional issue... I wish I could figure it out. I welcome your constructive thoughts and ideas.
