    What Do You Need to Do?

    The message board you're used to will be closing in the coming weeks. While many of your boards will be making the move to our new home, your posts will not. Want to keep a discussion going? Save posts you want to continue (this includes your member profile story), so that you can re-post them in the new message boards.

    Nighttime Weird Things
    An_255323 posted:
    So I will lay in bed and feel as though I'm shaking. I've seen some other posts but none really describe but I'm feeling. It's not every night but some. It feels like I'm slightly turning back and forth kind of fast. I'm not literally doing it with my body but it feels kind of like a "ghost" turning. Something from my mind. Even when I open my eyes, I see things as though I'm turning back and forth. I can't really explain it, it's kind of weird and hard to explain. It stops when I start moving. It only happens when I am completely still and trying to sleep. It's actually kind of calming and I do enjoy it a bit. But I still found it odd and decided to share.
