So this past Sunday, after a long hard weekend, I was completely exhausted and laid down to get some sleep.
Within seconds of closing my eyes, I began experiencing a phenomenon I've been through countless times, but never to such an aggressive
extent....what I can only describe as a series of slide show images (moving and static) flashing continuously in my minds eye.
I've experienced such before, but never this rapid of a succession and though the images were of a benign nature (mainly sock puppet shows and a few
disturbing clown images).
I was curious if any other ATS members have experienced this phenomena for themselves....a barrage of flashing moving/static mental images when
trying to fall asleep.
Usually, I try to visualize a sunset or some nice serene nature scene when falling asleep, but no matter what I did, it seemed I couldn't focus on
anything "positive" and it left me very stressed out that I couldn't block these unwanted images.
*It should be noted I had not been on the computer all weekend, so there is very little likelihood it was a layover from internet browsing....
(I'll do my best to monitor and respond to this thread as time allows, please forgive me if I'm not as attendant as I'd like to be....as my real
world schedule is somewhat more demanding than usual these days...)
