Comments: Lucid, frustrating dream

Sounds like an anxiety dream. I have had a few of these and the real-world links are more or less non-existent, sometimes to the point of being bizarrely unlikely e.g. having a raging screaming match with dad--about the least likely occurrence.

The only common theme is a strong sense of emotion.


I have caught my mind in the act a few times: had strong emotions in dreams erupt and got the distinct sense my brain's just hastily constructed a scenario around it into which that emotion could be plausibly shoe-horned for the sake of dream continuity. The emotional equivalent of working the [real-life] postman knocking into the story.

FWIW, I still occasionally get the "Oh shit I haven't revised enough for these immediately upcoming exams"...
