strange sleep
04 May 2024, 12:20 AM

I was feeling a little depressed today so when I got home from work I slept through the entire afternoon but I don't regret it. It was a strange sleep at times, where at some points I was dreaming that I was laying in bed trying to get up but I couldn't because I don't think I was actually awake. I have done this before, where my dream is that I'm laying in bed needing to get up and sometimes there are things happening around me (like one time I saw smoke in the room) but most of the time nothing is happening and I either drift off to another part of the dream or manage to wake up. Never scary, just weird. Is this normal?

Sounds like sleep paralysis. It's not unusual and can be a product of stress, so if you've been feeling down lately there may be a causal link. Besides the conscious psych-out, it's not considered actively harmful unless it's making you anxious about sleep in general.

@Thorvald: This sounds exactly like it. I didn't mention the VM hallucinations because I didn't know that feeling had a name but those have happened in all of my episodes. I'm sure it's just stress right now so I won't worry too much about it. They don't scare me that much anyway. Thank you!
