    When I worked 3rd shift at a psych hospital, I used to have a nightmare that I fell asleep during my shift (i was the infirmary nurse that took care of the psych pts with medical probs) which was a huge no no. The intense panic I would feel would make me literally nauseas....I would get up so fast that I would just get dizzy and it would take me a minute or two to realize that i was just dreaming. I did this almost every day for a long while and I thought I would go insane, pardon the pun.

    EEEK. That's my dream!!!!! I'm usually rushing past a room and just glance in and then realize that's one of my patients that I haven't seen at all. The feeling of panic in the dream is sooo real.

    Unfulfilled desires?

    And I hear the beep of pumps all the time.
    Suspect it's something more like PTSD...:roll

    I have 'em now and had 'em while I was off recuperating...vent alarms going off, nobody to help you, lost all the paperwork, etc.

    Must be a nurses' 'universal nightmare' based on reality, eh? LOL
