    I know this is common, but why do I constantly have dreams about my teeth falling out? Most times in my dreams my teeth just fall out all at once in my hand. Some times they are hanging on by a thread. And then the most bizzare ones are when they are all rotton and gross. I can...

    There are three that seem to happen frequently: 1.) At least once per month, I dream I am back in high school. The reason is usually that there was a mistake in my transcripts and that my high school diploma was revoked and I've got to make up for the credit. I spend the whole...
