When I first retired, and even now occasionally I dream I'm back working. Sometimes I dream my old boss and I are out doing some groundwork on a project, and then I realize he's no longer living, and I just relax and let it run its course. I too get a little tired of dreaming of work, since I've been retired ten years now. Sometimes I have dreams of being back driving a truck, those seldom turn out well. I don't understand why I have bad dreams about driving, when in reality, I usually could handle whatever came up.I’ve been retired for a little more than a year and I have recurring dreams. Not the same dream over and over again, but different situations, different locations, and different characters. They’re all work related. I’m dreaming I’m still working. Sometimes my employer is vague but I’m still working. The dreams aren’t nightmares. In fact some of them I don’t want to wake up from, especially those where I’m doing things that that would have me hauled up to HR. I’m not complaining, but I’d like to retire from this new employer and be done with this going to work nonsense.
If this makes sense...no not really but..interesting anywayI have many recurring dreams. One that i recently thought about was: I'm in a car driving. But in reality, its as if I'm in a video game and driving the car from a spot where I can see the car on the screen ahead of me. But I'm also in the car itself at the same time and the car is going too fast and losing control because from the vantage point of where I'm controlling the car, the car that I see is getting way too far in front of my vision and I can no longer see the road..... If this makes sense.
wow that plastic really held up didn't it?I know it might say something, but the most recurrig dream of mine is some kind of space ships or mililtiary ships and they are burning down the place. I can see the misiles or whatever and it is a big mess.
I have had that dream for at least 2 years, maybe 2 times a year.
Of course there are some other dreams, where i am stuck with elvira, but those are good dreams

I have that same dream every couple of months. Really.I have a recurring dream where I leave a familiar place and can't find my way back. It plays out in different variations like I'm at a resort and walk past restaurants and shops and wind up behind some huge warehouse buildings with hundreds of dock doors (I worked in logistics and designed and built distribution warehouses like Amazon uses). I just keep walking for miles unable to get back to where I started. The locales change, sometimes during the same dream sequence , I'll suddenly find myself at a downtown hi-rise hotel for business meetings, go out a side lobby door and am unable to find my way back to the door walked out of. I wander for blocks, take a cab, get closer, but never reach the door I exited. It goes on and on at multiple locales like airports, hospitals, my hometown, you name it. I interpret this as me subconsciously wanting to go back to a certain place in time and circumstance but being unable to do so.
