I dream that I am taking a class and just can't understand what is being taught. Last night the dream took me to the final exam, and I looked at the questions and couldn't answer any of them, and I needed to pass the course to graduate. I told myself that I could just repeat the class and that next time I'd understand the lessons better and be able to pass it. But I was so distressed about not being able to understand or to pass the exam.
Any ideas what is going on with this dream? I'm not taking classes or in school now. I can't think of anything that has me in such distress and fear of failure- although my mother has been ill and I've been frustrated that she won't help herself get better.- (she is starting to seem better.) But I can't think of anything in my life causing such confusion and anxiety.
