Just so you know that I'm not 'tainted by this web site' i came across this by coincidence.
Half the time I forget I have a membership here. Only when the mailer comes do I even remember, and some to most of the time I don't even answer.
I hadn't even heard of the August 18th thing until I started reading this forum. No lie.
I too have been having odd sleeping patterns and I shall start with that first. I believe it did start around Saturday, the 11th. I went to the pool
that day and sometime around five I started to feel drowsy. I decided to drag myself home, it felt like I was dragging. This wasn't an uncommon
phenomenon for me after going to the pool.
However, I didn't wake up until 11 that evening. Since that day I usually would start to feel tired around 5 in the afternoon and would proceed to
fall asleep. I would wake up around 11 or so and can't fall asleep until two in the morning. Today was the only day so far I can think of where I've
been awake all day.
Even when I was awake I was sluggish and I felt fat. I still feel fat, like I'm too round. I don't get it either. I could barely move at all.
That explains the grogginess, the slow reaction, I would just drool in front of the computer all day instead of actually going out and doing
Normally I'm not the type to get into the whole astral projection thing. But recognizing the state as I did I actually proceeded to actually roll
over but nothing more than that as I was snapped back.
Consequently that night I've done my first conscious dreamwalking.
Allow me to back up a bit here and explain a little background.
Ever since I can remember, I have places I visit continually. I call them dreamscapes. These places continually exist with a few variations as the
years have gone. Each time I visit one I'm walking somewhere, or driving to them/through them. And normally I'm chatting up people I know there,
that I've known all my life that I don't know.
And yes I have normal dreams, this only happens every so often.
Also I have the ability to unconsciously dreamwalk. I've had people tell me in great detail of a dream I vaguely remember that they remember me in,
(one even saying that I was calm and saying 'this isn't my dream') and there are blue moon moments where I remember them.
In this specific dream, I wasn't in one of my normal dreamscapes, this was on the 17th that I had this dream.
I was running from someone I know IRL but only have met a few times. It was like they were looking for me (I was playing another character in a dream,
I wans't myself) and I'm walking down this path, suddenly I'm smaller and I see this group of kids and I play with them, hoping they think I'm
just a little kid. I don't even know where the hell I am considering this wasn't one of my normal dreamscapes, I'd never been there before. I get
found out and they drag me into a shelter where they pump me for information on something I don't even know about. Funny though, I was having the
thoughts of the person in my dream. It was strange, vivid, kinda scary, weird and unusual all at once.
I honestly think that I was in that person's dream, dreamwalking. I was awake. I'd go into more detail but I'm running out of characters.
As per usual, thinking about my dreams pulls up other dreams, and I remember that I was in one of my normal dreamscapes.
