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.
