First off, S&F.
This kind of freaks me out a bit, because I have had -several- of the same type of "inception" dreams. In fact I even use that exact same term when
trying to explain them to people.
One particularly vivid one I had I will share. One night about a year ago, I was home sick with the flu, and I had a really bad migraine that
afternoon. The only thing I have found that kicks my migraines sometimes is Hydrocodone, but it doesn't actually stop the pain but just knocks me
out for eight hours or so. Well, I took one and proceeded to sleep it off. The odd thing is when I started to wake up, I was having a dream I
don't really remember, but I awoke from that one into a second dream. It was about being over at this house or something and I ended up realizing it
was a dream and waking myself out of it into what I -thought- was reality. I was dreaming that I woke up in my bed in my apartment, and I was lying
there and just kind of relaxing when suddenly I realized I was still dreaming. I then started literally fighting in the dream to wake up. It was
like trying to swim up out of wet concrete. Literally my dream was so heavy I could barely fight my way to be awake. When I finally woke up, I was
severely shaken by how hard it was to wake up. I considered it a side effect of the drug and thought no more of it. Then several weeks later, I
had it happen again with different dreams but same basic result. This time I had not taken anything. And it happened again weeks later, and has
happened at least a dozen times. It is extremely un-nerving when it happens and usually leaves me very shaken.
I have NO idea why my dreams have started doing this out of the blue. I have always had precognitive dreams and plenty of unusually realistic
dreams, but never these inception style ones that are so incredibly difficult to wake up from. I have been meaning to get on here and post about it
and see if anybody else had experienced them, but never gotten around to it just due to being so busy. Thus when I saw this thread, I instantly went
YES! You are definitely NOT alone, but I have no explanation unfortunately.
For what it's worth, some of the dreams in my inception style ones are precogs, others are just apparently unrelated dreams. Some of them appear to
be nightmares, but since I have no natural fear reflex anymore (long story) I don't become frightened in dreams or wake up scared. I actually wake
up angry from these dreams more than anything at how difficult it was just to wake up and pretty buggered that I had another one. Very strange
though, thank you so much for sharing and hopefully some other people have experienced this as well.
Feel free to message me if you want to talk more about it.
