How can I stop having nightmares about school? I wish I could control my subconscious!

I’ve had them all my life as a teacher of 20 years. Work can be draining and traumatic. Give yourself a break and be realistic. It’s not all hearts and stars. Sometimes I feel like I’m fighting for the soul of humanity . Other times it feels like a great career. It’s as varied as life itself.


Maybe try meditating. The Calm app is pretty good. 😃

Pick up a hobby

Drink some tea and pray if you believe in prayer!

I used to listen to music when I fell asleep...

I put a lot of pressure on myself to be perfect and 100% prepared for everything. When I feel stressed or overwhelmed, my mantra is: "it will get done" and "life will go on".

I journal every night. It helps me to put my day on paper and leave it there. I pray as well and the nightmares are not as often or vivid.

Went through a professional diagnosis at a reputable local hospital and the results came back that I don’t have it as I scored too well on their testing measurements.

Normally one would be relieved, but I have a tough time buying it. It doesn’t explain my lack of focus, persistent daydreaming, zoning out of conversations, subpar short term memory, inability to sit perfectly still for stretches of time.

Do I go seek a second opinion?


Is it a bad idea to go into a niche area of consulting straight after school (life science PhD)? Currently have 3 offers - company A does generalist LS, company B only does competitive intelligence, and company C only does market access but the comp is decent (20% more than the other two for analyst position). Very tempted to choose company C but I am scared that a niche area would hurt my career growth in the future :/
