The other day I made a post about something I saw on my drive home.
Since then something strange happened to me.
First, sleeping has been a little difficult. I get around 7-8 hours of sleep a night, or try to for the most part. The last couple of nights I just
toss and turn or wake up to sudden flashes behind my eyes or a strange silence, as if power has been shut off.
Then, last night / early this morning startled me.
I fell asleep with a pajama dress on. My boyfriend and I got to bed around 12 because we were out at a dinner party for a wedding. The AC was on the
highest setting and when I fell asleep it was very cool in the room. At some point I woke up and felt like I was laying next to a fireplace. He was
about a foot from me, but it didn't feel like it was coming from him, but everything around me. I couldn't move. I was stuck laying there boiling up
until I just fell back to sleep. He woke up after that and left the room, which woke me up. I pushed the blanket off of me and I had no pajamas on me.
I looked around for the dress but it wasn't on the bed, under the blanket or on the floor. For the time being I just went back to sleep telling
myself I'll find it once the suns up. I woke up again around 6am to go to the bathroom and realized I still had no pajamas on. When I got back from
the bathroom I looked on the floor, but there was nothing there. I looked over the blanket but it was not there either. I lifted the blanket enough to
check and it wasn't there. I started to panic, my heart racing. I kept getting up and looking again and again until somehow I fell asleep.
Around 8am I got up suddenly and decided to look around again and my dress was right on top of my feet, over the blanket. As if I didn't look
multiple times throughout the night. One sleeve was inside out, and it was just thrown there, definitely not moved when I lifted the blanket.
At 8:15 when his alarm goes off I asked him if he knew why I hadn't been wearing the dress. He said maybe I took it off in my sleep, but has no idea
how I didn't find it when I looked so much.
I should Explain that he isn't the heaviest sleeper.. none of me walking around and moving things woke him up. He did tell me that he barely slept,
though. That he kept waking up feeling uncomfortable or just unable to get into a deep sleep.
I don't know what just happened last night but it's not a good feeling in my stomach. I feel nervous and anxious, especially with how the dress just
appeared over the blanket after I moved it so much, and have no memory at all of taking it off. The room - once I got up to use the bathroom around 6,
was an ice block I should add. I have no idea how I felt so hot that I was sweating, how my dress got off of me, how it wasn't anywhere to be found,
how he didn't wake up through any of that and how it just appeared on the blanket.
It was just.. strange.
Maybe I should stop watching weird TV so much.. or maybe I'm going a little crazy.
