Does this happen to anyone else? Where you become aware that you are dreaming and you can't wake yourself up? It's absolutely terrifying. It's mainly during a daytime nap. I try to slap myself, sometimes I can get my eyes to open for a split second or so, I've resorted to trying to kill myself (a la inception movie) which is sometimes successful. Once I become aware it's a dream I can control the dream a little but I'd much rather wake up so I cannot enjoy it. And when I manage to wake up I'm a mess and incredibly groggy for ages.
It used to be a rare occurrence but is happening frequently at the moment. My DH has no idea what I'm on about. Is this normal?why is this happening? Anyone?
