So, I have major issues trying to fall asleep and stay asleep. Countless times i've woken up in a cold sweat and have 'known' that something was in my room, or felt something (like a snake, or spider) crawling in my bed. I react in a panic - turning on a light, or hiding under my covers until I gain enough nerve to turn on a light (sometimes takes about 30 minutes). In the case with spiders/snakes, I toss all my sheets off the bed and then stomp on them for a minute or two before I reason that there was nothing there. Or I move the object out of view - for instance, i thought my backpack was a very large sized rabbit that was getting ready to kill me. Sadly, I can not say this happens because I do drugs, since i'm the cleanest/soberist person I know.
Anyways, I have dreams occasionally and nightmares a lot. Its odd though, since they seem to occur in the morning right as I am starting to wake up. In a few instances, I've opened my eyes, looked at my watch, then closed my eyes again and continued with the dream. Not sure how normal that is. I've also had moments where things (in the waking world) have felt like deja-vu, and its only later that I recall why it feels like deja-vu, and thats because i dreamt something similar a month prior. Pretty odd.
Anyways, last night I dreamt a peculiar dream. I think it was actually two different ones actually. One involved being with my family at a friends place. It wasn't a farm, but they had an assortment of animals. A bull started to stomp its hooves, so i told everyone to get out of the golf-cart type thing we were driving. A lot of the dream is still fuzzy and while i can picture it in my head, i can't put it into words.
So, another part was a winter landscape. I was up high, looking down onto ice. There were kids skating there, and for some reason half of them all crashed together, severing some of their legs. Others fell through the ice. Then I was talking about how some of them lost their legs. Next, i was in a wetsuit swimming in the icecold water. Other divers were trying to recover the bodies. I saw one body floating under the Ice as my boss (go figure) swam by me telling me he was getting out cus it was cold. The hole in ice i entered was gone now too, so i tried crawling up onto the ice because I was getting cold, but it kept breaking. I felt warmer as i swam along the surface to a different area, where my dad helped me out of the water.
Not my typical type of dream, and i am leaving out a lot that i just can't put my finger on, 2 hours later, but yeah. Just thought i'd rant/share.
