I am having the worst sleep patterns ever. Lately for the past few months I've only been getting broken up sleep. And the only reason some times that I know I've fallen asleep is because I would have a dream. I'd would obviously finally drift off but then I'd be awaken by a sensation if my brain or me feeling like I had to catch my breath. My fears if sleep has gotten so bad. Can this happen where I can lay there even though I'd be afraid but is lay there and at an instant fall to sleep and even have a dream that fast because I won't even be to sleep long because I would watch my clock? If I dream does this mean I have fallen asleep even though it may have only been 30 min or is it something else? I need rest and it's only coming in increments of 30 minutes or 45 minutes and if I'm lucky some nights I'll get 2 hours at a time but I'm right back up and afraid. I feel like a zombie and I look as such. I have dark circles under my eyes now. My skin looks dry and different which also worries me because I look like someone with something else worse that I won't even say because I look frail from losing so much weight. Help is this possible am I getting sleep or is my mind playing this much tricks on me?
