Can't wake up from nightmares
I'll often have these dreams where all my worst fears are coming at me all at once and it's usually after I figure out that the people around me aren't actually real. They act real and they feel like my family and friends but as soon as I notice that I'm dreaming they start morphing into freaky monsters and everything turns into chaos. I start to have thoughts and feelings that don't belong to me and my perception becomes split up trying to interpret everything at once. I can't get myself to wake up from this so all I can do is take deep breaths to try and calm down and not die. That's when things finally become peaceful but that never lasts as long as the terror I have to go through. Is anyone dealing with dreams similar to this? Could it have to do with feelings of anxiety?
