Hi - I'm new to this site and would appreciate help. In the mornings, I will lay there half-awake and I keep having small snapshot type dreams when I'm awake. I've had a look on the net and I've seen there I some kind of condition whereby such things can happen but they refer more to shapes. Mine are proper dreams and I keep opening my eyes to stop them. It's very distressing and stops me falling back to sleep when I'm very tired from a bad night's sleep. Does anybody have this? I should also say that I've tended to self-medicate with alcohol and it's worse when I'm coming off of it - but it can also occur when I do drink. I don't know if it's drink-related or more anxiety or a mixture of both. It kinda makes you feel like you're going mad and I really don't like it.
