Have you ever been in that place somewhere between sleep and consciousness—where you can’t move, even though you’re trying to wake yourself up? I often times hear things, like someone opening my bedroom door, but I can’t wake myself up to see what’s going on. Yesterday morning I saw this shadow coming toward my bed and I knew I couldn’t wake up in time, so I was trying to wake up my fiance the only way that my body would let me. I woke myself up by moaning—I wasn’t able to scream loudly or formulate words. These are the scariest dreams I have ever had (“scary” doesn’t even begin to describe the fear). They usually occur in the early hours of morning (4:00-6:00).
P.S. Lest you think I am crazy, my house was broke into two months ago and my dreams began soon after. This probably has something to do with it.
