Do you ever wake up and just feel nervous?  I think if you have something going on in particular, it is normal.  But what if there is nothing "special" going on?  This happens to me frequently.  Eventually it goes away.  But I will wake up before the alarm (drat!) and for the remainder of the time I am in bed...I am nervous.  And it can take a few hours before the feeling goes away.

This morning I had a dream. It took place in one of those stadium type pools.  I was in the bleachers, so the interpretation part regarding being in the pool doesn't count:

To see or sit on bleachers in your dream indicates that you are reflecting on the progress of your goals. The appearance of bleachers can also serve to bring you back in time to the high school gym or track field and the feelings you experienced at the time.

Swimming Pool
To see a swimming pool in your dream symbolizes relaxation, calmness, luxury and ease. You need to take a break. Alternatively, a swimming pool suggests that you need to acknowledge and understand your feelings. It is time to dive in and deal with those emotions. You need to cleanse yourself and wash away past hurts. Consider the depth of the pool. If you were swimming on the deep end, then it means that those emotions are deeply seated and may be harder to confront.. You will need to work through it, no more matter how difficult. If you are swimming on the shallow end, then it implies that you should be able to easily deal with your feelings. 

The only thing I can think of is my work situation (because I am 99.9% positive that it has nothing to do with my feelings from 20+ years ago in high school!).  

I really don't like starting my day on edge.   I am already counting the hours until I am done with work and can come home.  I got next to nothing done over the weekend, between being under the weather and a baby shower, so I need to make up some traction.

Someone tell me this happens to them..... 


  1. I know it happens to me sometimes... that anxious feeling that I'm not quite sure where its coming from. Hopefully it pans out to nothing!

  2. Oh my goodness-I do this all the time! I rack my brain trying to think of something I forgot to do, or somewhere I had to go. Either that or I wake up thinking about money and bills. The feeling usually goes away, but it is a horrible start to the morning.
    Glad to see you back, and I hope your day gets better!

  3. I'm sorry you aren't waking up "refreshed". I hated my old job so much that I woke up like that every day I was scheduled to work ... although I knew the reason I felt nervous/anxious, so I guess it was "normal".

  4. I have experienced this before, when I did not like my work. Now if I get nervous it is before bed and then I can't sleep. So either way it is a pain.

  5. That happens to me quite often, actually. Then I start going over and over in my head about the stuff I've done or need to get done at work, and panicking thinking I haven't submitted something or what not. Very unsettling, but as you said, it eventually goes away. It's quite maddening.

  6. Yes, happens to me constantly, too, Mysti. Sympathies, it really makes for tiredness all day. I've tried herbal Valerian (all natural) - it's both a mild sedative and a sleep aid. Really makes a difference in creating calm and reducing sleep problems.

  7. I suffer from panic attacks that wake me from a dead sleep and then I am up the rest of the night. They are slowly starting to abate but not until I was given some medication from the doctor. I just couldn't function on 2-3 hours of sleep a night. So I take it when I need it

  8. My daughter suffers from these every once in a while, usually happens in the middle of the day. I'm not sure why. They tend to go away as quickly as they come.
