    I'm having dreams too... I can never remember exactly what I have dreamt when I wake up but my heart is pounding and I feel really anxious so I bet it was something related to my stressful life situation (new school, new job, new home... etc).

    Hope they stop when I start getting used to my new life...

    I'm going on Level 2 and I still feel somewhat the same. Things get better. Now, when classes start that will be a different story. I'll end up with face break-out, weight gain "and" the hershey problem, all at once. In regards to heart rate and etc. I remember my VS checkoff. My Pulse was well over 100 and experienced uncontrolable shaking. It's hard to take a pulse when you are shaking so hard you can't feel it.... Things do get easier but, wow!! I thought they were going to have to haul me to an the ER.

    I tend to have weird dreams when I eat late at night.. Excercise does help... Me and Hubby go bike riding every night. This helps me sleep and I get to spend time with him (since school will take up most of our time..)
    I'm kinda nervous cause I'm not sure what to expect, but I love change.. It keeps life more interesting and fun! :0)

    I have also had the nursing program nightmares and class doesn't start until Monday!
    It happens after I eat before bedtime, so I make sure not to sleep on a full stomach.
    I know it will be ok because I had the same dreams when taking A&P.
