As a side effect or for some just an experience of their Anxiety, has anyone experienced Lucid dreaming?
I have experience this more than I would like since I was a child, but as my anxiety hit, they are becoming more frequent. Usually if I have a Lucid dream... I wake up with derealisation (that is actually the only time I experience this symptom.) These dreams use to not bother me, but now, I wake up more exhausted as if I never went to sleep.
In case you are wondering: Lucid Dreaming is when you think you have woke up, but you are still dreaming. It's like... an out of body experience but more scary (for me) because I always think to myself in my dream "did I die?!"
It happens when I wake up early in the morning, stay up for a couple of hours and drift back to sleep or... when I am high in anxiety.
Any takers on this subject?😩
