Nightmare, I Think.Lately I have actually been able to fall asleep, so Im not sure if what Im gonna write now fits in right with this group. But I've noticed a pattern lately, that every night/morning between 5am and 6am, I wake up for no apparent reason. Last night though, I did remember why I woke up. I woke up by a nightmare or dream where there was someone in my room, looking at me. And it was really realistic, in the dream it was dark as it was when I woke up, my room looked exactly the same. It was so realistic that for a split second I thought it was real, and it was scary. I snapped myself out of, saying to myself that there is no one in my room and turned around and went to bed again. But right now theres a part of me that is a bit scared of going to bed, just in case I wake up again. In case it happens again. Im kinda thinking that Ive probably had the same dream all the other nights as well, and thats why I've been waking up. It's creepy, and right now I feel very unsure about myself, nervous, a bit scared and I don't know why. I've never really had nightmares before, and Im not even sure if this qualifies as a nightmare. I've had bad dreams, and dreams I've woken up by. But never anything I've been scared of after it happened.
I'm going to bed soon because I'm exhausted, and I don't know if I'll be able to sleep or not. But what scares me the most is the idea of waking up again in that manner. I don't know whats going on.
