What happened to me?

Postby beansandlentils » 21 Sep 2012 18:33

Any ideas on what happened last night?

So I woke up with a start - like when you gasp and sit up in bed. It was early in my sleep cycle - like 2 hours, and it was scary and intense and then I realized I was in a car with my mom. I knew something was up - I had "woken up" but I knew it wasn't reality. It was dark and it was incredibly hard to move. I finally looked at my hands (my reality check) and it took a while to register, but indeed I was dreaming. Still, I couldn't seem to move a muscle. After a while of being in the car, it slowly got darker and darker. Finally I realized I was probably awake and opened my eyes.

Any ideas? It was strange to wake up suddenly, but then to not really be able to move much. Almost like I was half awake? Except I was definitely in a car, not my bed. Semi lucid? It was really weird. Not very nice feeling either.

I've had some reoccurring dreams in the past where I couldn't move or speak, I was aware I was dreaming but had no control over the situation. When I get in these situations where I'm scared but semi lucid I'm able to whimper so my girlfriend will wake me up. Seems a lil silly that I can make a sound but can't just wake up. But that's what happens.

Could be sleep paralysis, you might have actually just woken up and then you were put in the car scenario as a kind of hullucination.
