I am sure you have all had one of these common dreams recently - a dream of being chased by something terrifying, or perhaps someone you care about got injured while you watched on helplessly.
Perhaps you were driving a car on treacherous roads where you couldn't see? Or maybe your common dream was turning up to an exam only to realise that you hadn't been to a class all year.
