I just woke up from a freaky nightmare. It felt as if I was awake but really wasn't...very weird. Anyways, here's the dream: I woke up...or I thought I woke up. I go over across my room to turn on the lights. But they won't turn on. Everything's almost as if I'm awake like I am now -- I can see and seem to feel as if I'm walking. I panic. Then it seems to begin again. This cycle repeats about 5 times (one of the times I actually go over to my PC and start reading the HTF...weird). In one instant of the dream happening, I'm in the house I'm in while typing this message this moment, but everything feels old...very OLD. But the dream still took place in the present. It was ODD. Very odd. In one other instant of the dream shortly before I woke up, I almost knocked over the speaker stand on the right side of my TV. Or so I thought. Not being able to turn on the lights or any physical interaction whatsoever was very frightening. I tried to scream help or something but found my mouth not moving (and no sound coming). That was really a rather odd dream. I had this dream only once before and things happened the same way. The only difference is that in the previous dream, I was asleep while my mom was awake in the next room and could see her doing stuff. But that dream didn't frighten me at all like this one did. I don't think I'm going to get any sleep tonight. These are really confusing and odd dreams -- almost like being awake but not really being awake. Has anyone else had anything similar happen?
