I've still been sleeping pretty poorly the past 4 months. But lately I've been waking up early to vivid dreams and when I wake up I feel really weird. Its hard to describe the feeling its, almost like slight dissociation that goes away as soon as I get up to go about my day. Anyone else experience this or other weird things like pre-dream thoughts?

Lucid dreams can do such things because they seem so real. These dreams tend to happen because we are almost awake. Half in half So we subconsciously aware of sounds and smells and other things. Because we are partly awake. That is what makes us wake up and think ' was that real '. There can be those few minutes were we do believe something seriously did just happen. Then it can kick in that it was just a dream. These dreams can also happen when we are just going to sleep as well. We are not fully asleep as of yet. Might sound odd to hear me say that I love such dreams. Just the whole reality side of them. Wakening up thinking what just happened was real for those seconds or even minutes. Once you fully wake up things should go back to normal. A carry over from the dream till you get out of bed.

Ever since I've been on psychiatric meds, dating back to 2000, I rarely even remember having a dream. And I think it's a nice problem to have since that means I rarely remember having weird dreams and waking up feeling weird because of it.

I rarely remember my dreams but wake up during the night in a panic. I try to tell myself that I am in bed and nothing has changed in the few hours I have been asleep. I am glad you are able to go about your day.
