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.

Yes me too. Now it's been 29 years since I graduated and 3 years since I've worked. Im just like Disablednurse......never be able to work again....the dream must mean something.
And I hear the beep of pumps all the time.
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
