Scary: I Couldn't Wake Up
An almost scary situation this morning in a dream, if you can believe it. I don't know that I'd ever had this happen before:
I finally get back to sleep this morning. It was an hour or so before wake up time. I ended up in one of my usual less than pleasant, but not really a nightmare- type dreams. The common theme in these dreams is trying to travel somewhere and not getting anywhere.
It was one of those dreams where I must actually be at least partly awake as I knew I was dreaming.
Finally, after dealing with the same stuff going on over and over again in the dream, I told myself it was getting old and I should get up and put an end to it. Problem was, I couldn't wake up. I started getting nervous and was asking people present in the dream if they knew how I could wake up. Nobody answered.
This was getting scary. What if I'm trapped in this dream forever?
Eventually, I told myself I should at least roll over on my side in bed as I often do throughout the night. When I rolled myself over, I woke up.
Whew! That was a close one.
