Perhaps it was more accurately described as Sleep Paralysis? I was with my dad taking a LOT of medications, heavy ones. Like, a LOT. And I was so fogged up I was trapped and couldn't even speak coherently. I was trying to convey to him that I wanted to take less or even none at all, that I was pinned down mentally. It was like extreme dementia. It was terrifying. And I couldn't do more than breath heavily, impossible it was to actually make a noise or move. Anyone else ever come across sleep paralysis? Call it a sleeping hallucination.
so I underwent a sleep study a while and was diagnosed with the following: minor sleep apnea, severe restless leg syndrome, and severe hyperactive REM disorder. I believe the third is what's causing my current issue. I get "suck" in dreams. I know I'm sleeping, but I can't get out. I do all the tricks (looking for colour (but I already dream in colour), turning on and off lights, drinking water, etc.), yet I can never get out of the dream. okay, so FINALLY I do. but then I end up in another fucking dream. and this will happen repeatedly until I travel through five to seven dreams. and when I finally wake up for real, I'm covered in sweat, panicking, short of breath, and (my partner says) sometimes even yelling. does anyone else have these "Inception"-like dreams? and if so, how do you manage?
