Crab like creature crawling up the wall

Damn! Saw this strange crab like creature crawl up the wall in the family room!
I jumped up from the couch!
Scared the daylights out of me!

It was so realistic!

I calmed down after realizing it was a hypnopompic hallucination.

Man I hate those!

@Saline. Weird indeed… @Wave. I’m sorry they scared you… At least you were able to calm yourself down!

I frequently have these sleep wake hallucinations.
By no means are they new.

It was downright scary as hell!
Thanks @Twialine

@Wave I get ones of a man standing over me when I wake up at times… He’s more frequent than I like to admit.
No problem

I don’t have those yet, I’m sorry it startled you. I hope you know you are safe, and that given our situation its normal, if it becomes a trend try to see if you need to adjust your medication.

I sometimes have very vivid dreams and one of the things that helps me deal with them is that I remain calm and try not to be hard on myself until I feel more lucid, then generally at that point I can think rationally in the dream and wake up slightly or acknowledge I’m dreaming.
