when I was young I woke up thinking I was still in a dream. once in the dream I lost a million dollars so when I woke up I started looking for it. after a few minutes I figured out it was a dream. another time I was being burned alive in a dream and I could feel the heat and started screaming which woke me up.
Confusional arousals? Maybe? I get these once in a while.
Called a vivid dream.
I’ve had many cases of those and still to this day remember those feelings (of parents dying in dreams).
I guess it’s considered a part of psychosis, difficulty with telling dreams from reality?
