I have had a couple of occurrances when I'd feel really sleepy and I'd lie down and then I'd feel like I was sinking. I have to close my eyes because I'm so sleepy and I'm sure that if I just switch off and fall asleep I'll die in my bed. It's so real and very scary.

When im full blown psychotic i get that feeling i think terror's the correct word for it. it's like extreme despair and fear it's a horrible feeling. or maybe that's just what happens to me when i go psychotic i just litterally feel like existence it's self is coming to an end terror and fear and pain completely searing through my soul.

It must be horrid. If you feel like that again come and write on here and see if you can get a conversation going about such things as what you like to do, and any hobbies or particualar interests.

i dont know its just bad dreams but i often wake up completely alert.

also everything i touch melts and crushes me, the world is upsidedown and spinning. im like this in sheer terror for a few mins before i regain control and calm down! i honestly believe the world is over and usually all i can say is 'hide hide hide'

boy im messed up!
