  Has anyone else had this happen to them? The last couple of nights I'll dream that I am at work, the ED is overflowing and someone is trying to give me report on a dozen patients that are coming in while I am lying in a bed dozing somewhere. Then they get really mad and yell, at which point I wake up. It always takes me a couple of minutes to realize that I am at home, in my own bed and it's my night off! I actually have to take a second to mentally tell myself it was all a dream and try to relax and go back to sleep.

  What the heck? My husband thinks this is weird and so do I. I've always been a great sleeper and never had problems working the night shift then flipping back to a normal schedule on my days off. I don't like to use medications but this is getting silly. Any suggestions nurse sisters and brothers?

  1. TOTALLY!! I was dreaming the other night that I feel asleep at work! I woke up pretty freaked out because I really had no idea where I was for a split second there.

    This one time at band camp...(hahah) anyway, I used to dream that I was at work ALOT when I worked LTC. I think it's all about stress.


Hi! I love to hear what you have to say but be warned I reserve the right to whip out the Iron Paw on anyone. So play nice.
