Am I becoming neurotic? I keep dreaming that I hear things, and it wakes me up. (See details.)
Last night I could have sworn I heard my son call me. I woke up and answered him. But when I checked, he was asleep. One night I woke up because I heard the cat in the litterbox scratching around. But the cat was outside. Another night I heard the front doorbell ring...I got up and looked out of the window, but no one was there.
Another night, I awoke because I heard someone call my name.
I don't know what to think about these kinds of dreams. They usually happen around 2 or 3 AM. They are becoming more frequent.
