    Default Strange Nap.

    I went with my sister and her new husbands Mom's house for Christmas dinner today.

    I met the rest of his family, and we all sat down to eat a nice dinner. Of course after eating, I kicked back in his Mom's recliner, and was soon asleep.

    During the course of my nap, I became aware of a strange sensation, almost like a buzz of electricity going through me. I was lying there and was listening to my brother in law's Mom and a friend, who were having a conversation on the couch, and then I heard my sister come into the room and tell them that my ex had called her cell and had left a voice mail. At this point she tries to wake me up.

    Now for all intensive purposes, I was awake, or more accurately, aware. I could hear the conversations going on around me plain as day. I could hear my sister explaining to them that she doesn't like my ex, not even one tiny bit. As my sister is trying to wake me up, I attempt to raise my left arm to let her know I'm awake, and I'm feeling my arm raise up in the air. I repeat this several times and after a while I thought, "Surely she can see my arm moving" but I can hear them laughing and carrying on and saying things like, "Boy, he really is out, isn't he?" and at this time I kind of start freaking out, because as far as I'm concerned, I'm awake and moving, yet they are joking about me sleeping so hard. After much effort, I finally got my eyes open.

    Talking with my sister about it later, she said that my eyelids were moving, but that's it.

    I'm kind of freaked out about it a little bit even now, because at the point I really started freaking out, I was thinking, "I'm in a coma and can't snap out of it!"

    Has anybody else experienced anything else like this?

    Not exactly, Viking. However, sometimes I think I'm having sex with Lynda Carter, but I'm actually not.

    But is she wearing at least part of the Wonder Woman costume?

    You're not alone! I actually had this happen to me in my sleep just a few days ago and I thought I was crazy. It was morning and my dad was in the laundry room putting stuff in the washer and dryer before he left for work. My door was open (it usually is closed when I am sleeping). I was dreaming about driving around and my friends were driving behind me. While i asleep I could clearly hear the doors of the washer and dryer being opening and shut and my dad making noise, but I was dreaming that it was my friends trying to get into the house and play some sort a trick on me while i asleep. My dream had switched from driving around to me in my bed looking towards the laundry room. I was trying so hard to wake myself up to stop them for whatever reason even yelling at some points. I could hear my dad say "Are you ok?" and eventually i woke myself up, but I did not even realize it because the view in my dream was the same as when I woke up; looking out my door towards the laundry room. This caused the change from dream to reality to be really weird. I was very light headed when I was waking up and it gave me a blistering headache for about 5 hours. I have never talked in my sleep before and I wasn't afraid of my friends by any means in my dream so I'm not sure why it all happened, but it was traumatic trying to wake myself up and struggling to do so.

    I was light headed also when I woke up, although I didn't have a headache afterwords.

    Ya, I figure the headache was just the result of my brain going "What the hell?" cause i woke up in the same spot I was dreaming in. Either way, not fun. I too thought i was stuck in a coma or something.

    No, not even the least part of the costume. But she lets me fly in her invisible jet, and I hear Lyle Waggoner wants to kick my ass.

    When I stay up late and get a horrible nights sleep and if I throw booze in the mix this usually happens to me on the next night if I don't nap during the day.

    If I sleep in front of a tv I can dream the dialog of what's on. I interpret what they are saying. Mostly those infomercials on the discovery channels.

    This happened to me a few years ago. It felt like I was pinned to the bed, I was trying to move my legs but I couldn't and I genuinely started to panic, so I understand how you feel Viking. It is pretty unsettling at the time.
