Here I thought I was the only one! I've been retired almost 4 years and often have dreams about being at work and being called on the carpet for something I neglected to do or some work I didn't know had been on my desk. Or I'm wandering around trying to remember where my desk is or the names of people around me.
In all these dreams I end up reminding myself that I can retire now (often I'm "filling in temporarily") and I'm often heading for HR to put in my notice.
Let me add that I rarely made mistakes while I was working but there was a lot of stress about potentially missing deadlines or sending something to the opposing atty they weren't supposed to get.
After my latest dream, night before last, I got to wondering if this wasn't some form of PTSD. What does everyone think?
I wonder if there's a way to process this all and lessen the occurrence of the dreams. They really do stress me out.
