    Half Asleep/Half Awake Lucid Dreaming?????
    kaitlynking posted:
    For the past few years something weird has been happening to me off and on when I sleep. I'll be half asleep and tossing and turning in my bed and I feel like I'm in a place with other people and I can't go to sleep. For example one time I thought I was at a volleyball game with my friends and every time I started to fall asleep I would think "no I can't do that I'm at a volleyball game". But at the same time I would be thinking that it's just a dream and I'm being ridiculous. Then usually I sit up in my bed and force myself to look around my room and recognize that I'm home and in bed. This doesn't really happen consistently, and it also usually happens after days when I've had a lot of activity. I was just wondering if this happens to anyone else and if there's a name for it or if its even a thing at all. Thanks!
