Okay, so I don't get "night fears" too often. Actually, I don't remember any cases in which I might have had them in the past. This is why what
happened to me last night was an unusual situation for myself.
I work nights, so I sleep during the day. I sometimes have a hard time sleeping (since it is light out), so I have to watch my caffeine intake.
Yesterday I had only a tiny bit of caffeine at least 8 hours before I tried to sleep, so that was not a factor.
I laid down, and was able to fall asleep very quickly. But, I awoke, what seemed to be only a couple of minutes later, with this irrational fear of
having people look down at me while naked. I felt very violated..... and naked.. but I was wearing clothes. I was wearing boxers, so this nakedness
was all in my mind, I think.
The odd thing, is that I was unable to go back to sleep for at least five hours later. It seemed as if I was scared of something.....
Any suggestions, or similar experiences? I have no logical explanation for what seemed to be fear on my part.
