Questions and Answers About Sleep

Sitting in bed half asleep thinking you're doing something, but you're really not?

So, I've had this problem for quite some time now, probably since I started working at age 16..but I really want to know why it happens and if it happens frequently with anyone else. I've held many jobs, mostly in retail, but my experiences with being "half-asleep" also happened each night after I worked with kids at a camp. I would find myself sitting in my bed, thinking that the campers are in my room. I would see them, but in any situation, I would not use my voice because I know I would be speaking aloud. I would know I am in my bedroom as well, so I would ponder, "why am I in my pajamas?" or "Why is it 3AM?" Eventually, after either seeing the images disappear, or just ignoring them, I would lay back down in bed. This also happens with objects. I think I'm holding something, like a remote, then set it down on my bed. I frantically try finding it again only to realize that it was never there. After working at a store, and sometimes not even right after working, I still think I'm working, but i know I am in my bedroom. I wonder why customers are in the store (my room) at 3 in the morning, and try to take what they want to ring out, but I'm grabbing nothing. Even after I lay back down and fall asleep, it happens again shortly after. How do I get rid of this? Typing all of this makes me feel crazy. Does anyone have this issue? I can explain in more detail if needed.

Thanks.

I've also felt I was holding something to waken to nothing there. Alot of times I'll fall asleep with the TV on and dream what is on the TV (it usually turns into a nightmare). When I do wake up I just try to shake it off.

Sometimes (and this is real weird) when I start to fall into sleep I'll get a sensation in my ears (not ringing ears, I always have that). This is more of a very sublte buzzing which if I don't force myself to wake up will turn into the scariest of nightmares and then they will last all night. Like Billy Crystal used to say, "I HATE WHEN THAT HAPPENS."
have you had a sleep study done becasue that sounds like hulicinations and they are a sign of some sleep disorders

Let’s stop your husband’s snoring!

You know you are married to a very good guy. He helps you with the housework, he is always so supportive, he takes you out on fancy dinner nights and not to mention all those times he makes you laugh like you were five years old. It is true that he is the best! If only you could stop his snoring though…When you think about going to sleep, you probably might want to just stay in the couch a little bit longer. You might actually even consider sleeping there (if you haven’t already done it). His…See More
