I slept with the shades open and since it was already bright in my room I was blind in my dream, everything was fuzzy white and I could just see outlines.
Recently my eyes opened and I was concious in the sense that I could see my room and everything but I couldn't move or yell. I finally figured out that I could move my right leg and managed to roll over using that. When I rolled over I was able to move the rest of my body and talk.
One really cold night in winter I was sleeping with a comforter and two blankets, and in my dream I tried to punch someone who broke into our house. I couldn't move my arms that was pretty scary. I woke up sweating and fighting my comforter.
I have A LOT of dreams about people breaking into our house, and I'm really paranoid about it... its annoying.
thats because your body paralyzes itself when you are sleeping...ive actually had that happen a few times, kinda scary if you dont know whats going on..
