This one is kind of long, but I really feel that I need to share this with someone. Since I am still very new to AP, OBEs, and LDs, I have a hard time distinguishing all of them.

To quickly sum up how I was feeling before sleeping last night, I felt very flu-like and had a pretty bad case of chills. It didn't take me long to fall asleep, as I was sick. I went to sleep around 1:00am, which is slightly early for me on the weekends. I usually wake up several times between 8:00am-11:00am, and it is during these times that most of my experiences occur. I can not remember if what happened occurred earlier in the night or after waking and falling asleep yet again during the times mentioned.

It started as a normal dream with bizarre events that could have led me to have a LD. One moment I'm on vacation with my cousin in a weird boardwalk cottage, then I am in a very uncomfortable situation with my girlfriend in my basement, which is still bothering me hours later. During this situation, I gained the will to stop whatever was happening. It was at this time that I began to flash in and out of the dream. I was in my bed experiencing SP; however I feel as if i were experiencing SP during a False Awakening (if that's possible). It was as if myself in my bed were communicating with myself in the dream (in the basement). I kept telling my dream-self that I was experiencing SP; although, I was not scared. More so just really irritated with the fact that it was happening. Whenever I perceive myself to be in SP it is as if my eyes are on my forehead and I can only look up and down, It usually starts with my vision focused on the top of my nose for whatever reason.

I could move my fingers and I vigorously kept trying to jerk myself left and right to end the SP. At this time, various manifestations of random humanoid beings would appear standing on my bed and quickly disappear. While this was happening, I would describe the beings to my dream self, who was still in the basement. One of these beings appeared to be a younger version of myself. Once I saw this, I tried sitting up and jumping into this body, assuming that it would help me end the SP. Still, nothing happened. Once the manifestations stopped, I yet again jerked my body vigorously to the left and managed to get out. Everything was moving quickly and I recall leaving my bedroom, which was missing the door, and headed to my bathroom. On my way there I pinched my arm to make sure I was awake (Cliché, I know). I did in fact feel it, so I assumed I was awake. Once I entered my bathroom I was not myself. My thoughts, movements, appearance, etc were simply not me. I looked more pale, thin, and had less physical features on my face. This also really disturbed me, mostly the way I was acting, and I was not okay with it.

I do not remember much after, only quickly moving to a hotel somewhere in what I believed to be southern Florida. I was meeting someone I was vacationing with for breakfast out by the pool. I did not see their face. I just remember sitting down and staring up at what was supposedly the window of our room and I complained that was stuck in SP. I believe this was my way of telling this individual why I was late for this meeting. I then woke up (for real) feeling dehydrated and had a irritating headache.

So, that's it. Now that I typed it all out, it seems less disturbing. But overall, very strange for me. I don't suppose anyone here could truly explain what the hell happened or if there were certain meanings behind all of this, but I'd appreciate any feedback!

I know for a fact that strange strange things can happen when sick. Including false awakenings and a strange sense of a ton of things happening at once. When I'm sick, especially with a fever, I'm always so confused about when I'm awake and when I'm asleep and sometimes things just start going in a crazy loop that drive me nuts. I hope you're feeling better.

Seeing things in your room, it could be due to the SP/false awakening combos. Even when not sick, when minds are still in that sleep mode, it's not uncommon for traces of dreams to be lingering around before you're fully awake... More so when in SP.

Sounds like it was a headache. ><

And distinguishing AP/OBEs/LDs? Life is so much easier not trying to distinguish one from another. It's probably closer to the truth that way anyways, hehe.

Feel better!!

Take to the sky, feeling so alive! Past the clouds to the Milky Way, share our secrets with the starry brigade. The stars surround us like a million fireflies. For once I see infinity... it's in your eyes.
