      Those dreams would certainly be stressful dreams!!! Whenever I had to take a test in real life, I would read all of the questions on the test and not know the answer to a single question for about ten minutes!!! Talk about stress, but then after about ten minutes I went back and for some reason I knew all the answers. I guess I had ten minute test stress or something strange?

      Interesting hub! Voted up ++ and sharing

      God bless, Faith Reaper
