Does anyone else get these? They’re also called hypogogic hallucinations. It’s when you’ve just woken up, but your brain is still dreaming, so you experience your dreams in a much more realistic way. You’re not able to move or talk at all, because even though you’re conscious, your body is still in sleep mode and doesn’t respond to your commands.
In my case, it’s always my brother breaking into my room and attacking me. And I try to scream and kick, but nothing happens and I’m just frozen. It happened this morning at like 5 AM, and I couldn’t get back to sleep. I’m scared to go to sleep tonight. I took my sleep PRN, but it isn’t doing much for me. So now I’m just lying here, in the dark, looking at memes and trying to distract myself.
How do you calm down afterwards? I used to get them every night, but I haven’t in a long time. I’m going to have to see him at Christmas though, I think that’s why it happened. I’m afraid of having to be around him again.
Mr. Star talked to me for a few minutes, but then he had to go to work and I was stuck alone all day. I’m scared of it happening again tonight. He’s next to me, but asleep. He has a test tomorrow, so he can’t stay up and cuddle me.
