The latest dream to wake me up was of my being so aggravated at work that I began boxing up my stuff. My boss came by and I simply told her that I quit. I was tired at being jerked around and at listening to long-winded rationalizations about why conditions haven't changed in the last several years.
This really worked me up to the point where I was hyperventilating. Woke up choking. Calmed down enough to lie still and could breathe with only a little wheeze. Couldn't get comfortable enough to sleep, though, as I was still upset and would get a twinge in the back everytime I'd move.
