    I keep having these dreams where I'm awake in the dream I know I am but I can't wake myself up . It gets very scary to the point where im blinking and pinching myself and doing whatever I can to wake up . I've talked to myself saying wake up Alyssa and I just hear an echo of my own voice repeating what I'm saying right back to me . I try to get myself up but I can't I can't move and I get to a point where I feel like I'm half awake and half asleep and I'm screaming but I can't move I feel trapped and finally out of nowhere I'll just wake up and I remember everything . I want to know what is happen

    It's known as sleep (or REM) paralysis, often the result of not getting enough sleep. Here's a link where you can learn all about it on this site: dreamdoctor.com/sleep-disorder/sleep-par...8ed64ba7f78bbbec0416

    It's very common and you can learn to stop it or get out of it quickly.

    Good luck!
