No, but I work with patients who have OCD and the illness can take up large parts or even most of their day. All I can suggest is that you try and find a way to relax - 'normal' stress from life and the symptoms of OCD seem to have a direct relationship, as you may know. Starting medication or having your current medications adjusted may help significantly.

I'm not seeing anything about this, mostly just boards about personal one-off dreams. So please explain your experiences on the following topics as detailed as possible.

>Sleep Paralysis
>The Old Hag
>Shadow People
>Hatman and/or Hooded Figure
>Other people seeing/feeling the same thing at the same time

I'm putting together notes for a Podcast episode to better understand this phenomena and how/why it affects so many people and why the experiences are so similar and often viewed by multiple people.

I don't get hallucinations, but I do feel a presence, a strong presence of an "other" in the room or of my surroundings being an "other" and usually a slight electrical kind of "static" feeling, and instead of being pressed down upon or pressured I tend float upwards or feel like I'm being pulled out of the bed by an unseen force. I don't really get scared of it anymore, like not terrified, just a little shaken. It's actually not so bad, and I think the "alien" feeling is just the strangeness of the experience itself manifest. There are a few times though when it's gone much further than just rising out of my bed, one experience had be spinning and tumbling around in the middle of my room for a good minute, and I wasn't even in bed about to sleep, but I came to sitting on my chair clutching the sides.

As for theories, the common explanation, that it's a sort of waiting room between waking and sleeping in which you're not quite asleep yet and slightly late in falling asleep so you're in this paralysed state in which you're body is asleep but your mind is not, and tries to escape seems plausible. At least I think that's how it goes.

I think the fear and discomfort of the experience forces people to hallucinate demonic entities or shadow figures etc. to explain it in a panicked state, when it might not be so, but I'm open to theories.

Beating sleep paralysis

So, I've gone through periods/spurts of sleep paralysis in my life. In retrospect, this was often sleep deprived/drug/malnutrition or not eating well or at all related.

When I first experienced sleep paralysis, | got an overall feeling of anxiousness, fear, and panic. In whatever scenario, this is not something that is benificial for your peace of mind. Seeing all kinds of crazy shit around me, while l literally was seeing my own sleeping body from above, with all the nuances and details of the room intact, and not being able to move at all tended to be very overwhelming for me.

The trick to beating this, which works everytime in my experience, is consciously relaxing my entire body, and jumping up like being hit with a tazer in an intstant. If I struggle, it's like quicksand, the more I try to get out, the deeper I get stuck.

Quite often, I will be dreaming - and it's usually not a pleasant dream - and I'll wake up for whatever reason. Screamed myself awake, cat on face, have to piss, whatever.

Most of the time I'm relieved I'm out of the dream.....

Except when I fall back asleep the dream picks up right the fuck where it left off. Not like, 'similar scenery' I'm talking... the exact point where I awoke, I'm back in it.

It makes me so upset, like I can't escape. Doesn't matter if I wake up once or six times, if it's one of my spanning dreams, if I go back to sleep,I'm stuck. There have been a few instances where the dream was SO terrible, I just stayed up the 2nd time I awoke because I was terrified it would continue.

I keep a dream journal nightly, and in review it seems like I get this kind of thing once every 6-8 weeks. I have NO advanced notice that I'm gonna be stuck in a storyline.

Has anyone else had this, or even something similar??

I know what you're talking about. The continuation of the plot could have something to do with your surroundings. Have you tried changing the room you sleep in or spraying some febreze before going back to sleep? Things like smell and sound can leak into your dreams.

Paranoia

I really hate when people ask me if I'm okay and look me in the eyes, especially when I'm really high. I appreciate it, don't get me wrong, and this isn't the kind of thing where I don't want to seem like a bitch when I'm drinking, smoking, or taking some other substance.
The thing is, most of the times when this happens, I'm awake and not actually dreaming, but I keep imagining that I'm going to wake up. Sort of trying to say that my waking state now is actually my dream and sleep state. I keep feeling like the person asking me if I'm okay isn't actually my friend or whoever I'm doing things with, it's an EMT, a paramedic, or even a cop, and it freaks me the fuck out.
I'm so paranoid, you guys, and I think it has to do with the fact that this has actually happened to me before on a xan overdose where the people I was with felt they had to call an ambulance because I was sleeping in public.
It's driven me to a point where I don't even do most drugs.

Anyone else know this feel or anything similar of this paranoia in their lives?

Weed is the only drug I have done that makes me feel extremely paranoid over this same basic idea. I think it happened because of a DXM drug trip where I felt like I was dying, an n_bome trip where I got stuck in a mind loop, and a spice trip where I think I was actually dying. The onger I smoked weed the more the effects increased until I could hear absolute strangers talking complete shit about my private life. I had to take some time of from smoking weed and get my head together and that seemed to help. I prefer to do drugs that give you no choice but to relax, when I smoke weed now the paranoia never went away completely but it got a lot better.

I've been in a swing of having very vivid dreams again but the problem is that my ex girlfriend is in almost all of them. Last night I was in line at a store to work on something there and then all my friends showed up in a massive line up to apply to be in the next guardians of the galaxy movie. I was not going to join but last minute decided to sign up. I get in the audition room and I couldn't pick a script and we spent forever looking through different comic books for cool dialogue. Three people were helping me at once try to read one page of a Daredevil book. That has nothing to do with Guardians but whatever. The words were just going crazy on the page.

Then out of nowhere my ex shows up. She is so mean to me in my dreams it hurts so bad. I have not been with her since January and I thought I was over her but these dreams are making me ache over it a lot. She just shows up and treats me like shit in all of my dreams and insults me and then leaves. I always wake up broken hearted and sad but also wishing I could stay in the dream world. I hate waking up.

you know how in dreams it's tough as shit to beat someone up? well last night i had a dream where someone else was with me and beat the shit out of this arsehole that i knew when i was younger. felt just as satisfying. also i was helping, i know you get limbs made out of melted plastic in dreams but for some reason swinging chairs and other things around, it doesn't matter if your arms are moving slow, you can rely on the weight of the object to do the damage.

only complaint i have is that after one or two hits with the chair, i felt bad and wanted to stop. i didn't want to apologise, fuck that, but i felt like i'd done more than enough. the other person didn't feel the same way though. last memories are of him picking him up and laying him out unconscious on a bush, then seeing him come to and almost roll off it at like 6ft in the air.

dreams are amazing at teaching us about our own psyche, like yeah you could do the monkey brain shit but is it gonna be worth the emotions afterward?

You can beat someone up easily in a dream. Just have more force man. I've had high speed fights, slow motion fights, flying at a dude and choppin him in half with a sword. Grabbing a dude and using his body as a shield vs bullets, grabbing a 30lb dumbbell off the floor of a gym and throwing it 50mph at some dude and cracking him in the face.

how often do you dream about gore? do you think its indicative of your interests and maybe even mental health if you dream about it too much?

I've had this dream today. We were on a big castle and it was in the middle of winter. The snow made the scenery look like a real winter wonderland. By we I mean a bunch of strangers, a bunch of friends and a bunch of people that i vaguely remember from way back in the day; were talking early middle school and primary school here.
i get my hands on some really fire dope and proceed to eat it and i get buzzed as af. as the day goes on i end up watching soccer with a bunch of hooligans and being bored out of my mind. so i step outside to talk to a friend about my dope. he asked why i wouldnt just take so much to nod the fuck out and be done with it. and i told him that it would be a waste, i need to make it as memorable as possible. thats where an idea came upon the dude, he told me "why dont you jump off of that building as the dope kicks in, the adrenaline may give your rush a new edge". i told him that he was a retard and that that shit doesnt work and as i was proclaiming my disappointment in his idea some retard jumped off of that very building. we went to check him up and he was fine.
it turns out he is a dopefiend. i told him "i will give you my dope if you can catch us and beat us up". he agreed and gave us a head start. using this headstart we ran into a nearby grove and my dude pulls out a gun "well surprise him now that we are alone with him" as he ran to our location he pointed the gun at him and the fiend got all sad and desperate pleading us to spare his life, the works. we shot him in the stomach and i went and cut off his head, kneeled down and gouged out his eyes with my thumbs, holding onto the severed head while the blood was painting the snow beneath us a crimson mix of snow and blood. as i was done with his head it looked up and saw a little girl in a summerdress that looked at me and asked me: "are you proud of yourself?"

It means you're a night owl (or a night cat). There's no way around except to accept it and embrace it. If you fight it it's gonna make your life suck. Let's admit it, mornings suck and having to wake up in the morning is no way to live, lol. Just get a night job, they sometimes pay better than day jobs (if you need a job).

Depends, do you mean that you lie in bed sleepless or that you just stay up, probably fucking about on your phone/computer?

Either case, you should try to keep about 2h prior to sleeping screen free, it fucks with your sleep. If that doesn't work, and you're actually going to bed but can't fall asleep, you're probably better off asking a real doctor instead of the internet.

How do I work or develop skills in a creative field? Whether in the form of prose, comics, film, sketch, video games, radio/podcast anything. I want to tell stories.

Next month I will be moving to a different city where I intend on making the pursuit of a creative field my main goal. I have worked an office job for the last 3 years and I can't do it.

But I want to know what skills I should be developing. How do I make myself useful? How to find likeminded people? For the moment I write for 2 hours everyday (short stories) and while I consider this my main pursuit, I want to become multifaceted. Should I be learning to draw? Learning to code? What are some other skills? Fuck I'd just love to be a camera man.

Just writing can be really lonely and it takes months at a time to receive rejection letters so I don't always get a feeling of momentum. I want to involve myself in collaborative spheres as well.

Last night I dreamed that I lazily reached down from my bed, squeezed a furry thing, like a giant rat or a possum or something and broke the necks of the babies that popped out. You ever have possum abortion dreams? Felt weird in my hand, like the heads just pulled off too easily or something. The dreams are starting to have feelings now.

Anyway. Do what you feel you should... Look for internet forums or sites about creative talents you want to develop and collaborate in. Keep writing. Moving to a new city sounds rough though, so have a plan for supporting yourself and your creative pursuits.

I'm in the same situation. Unfortunately exchanging personal information is not allowed and I don't have an account on any creative internet forums or whatever. What I would actually need is an illustrator to create a comic book. So many ideas, I have so many ideas that go unused. Damn, since this is /dr, I even get ideas in my dreams sometimes. Also, in creative fields nepotism and corruption abound so no matter how talented you are it's almost impossible to get noticed.

I used to not remember my dreams. Now, for the past three weeks I have nightmares every time I sleep. Themes include but are not limited to: drowning, deep slicing stabbings, torture, animal mauling, chases. Most are violent and gory where deaths are involved (usually by knife). While dreaming, I have been killed, killed others, and witnessed killings done by others. I can't get the images out of my head of the anguished faces being tortured and the twisted pleasurable smile of the torturer. Most of them include people I know, especially my family. I also get sleep paralysis, which is even more terrifying to me. I dread laying in bed when I'm tired. Some nights I'll be laying with the lights on, and I purposefully try to stay in the beginning stages of sleep without going to REM sleep. It feels like I'm half asleep while still being conscious. This leaves me very tired and mentally unfocused the next day. Most nights, I think drinking alcohol until I pass out will help but I still remember. I'm not against using drugs to not remember dreams. I've learned the techniques and tried lucid dreaming but am unsuccessful so far. I'm sick of having nightmares. I don't know what to do or why it's happening.

Eventually I got used to the nightmares, so it does not scare me anymore. The sleep paralysis has not returned. I always go through dark mental times during the winter season. Now that spring is starting, I'm having better more neutral dreams. I'm back to the usual teeth falling or getting pulled out, and endlessly packing for eternity. I didn't really do anything different.

Weed has been the best for not remembering dreams. It also seems like when I smoke lots every day then suddenly abruptly stop, the dreams become very vivid and intense. Then I'll continue to stop smoking for a while and the dreams gradually get duller.

I relate to what you're saying. I feel I let spirits use me not because I'm vulnerable but because I allow it. I don't care what happens. Maybe the drugs make me vulnerable. Do you ever get feelings of possession?

little bit of backstory. i lost my virginity to a whore but couldnt stay hard becuase i was nervous or, more likely, i was desensitized to the point where sex felt ass with a condom on. i used to masturbate twice a day minimum with a grip so hard it could turn paper back into wood.

anyways i had a dream that i was on a school trip kinda thing and that i got to know this girl that was rather cute. we went into a dark room that had a big winfow, outside lies the city of hong kong with its never resting lights and bustling streets. we seemed to be on the 11th floor and the only thing illuminating the room was the moon. we got naked and though she seemed shy at first i told her that i would take it slow upon which i started to kiss her neck and fondle her titties. she was no bigger than b cup. the thing that struck me the most about that dream were the gasps she made and the way she layed her arms around my neck.
i have never felt something so beautiful in my life, an electric shock went through my body and the only thing i could think about was how i wished this moment would never end. i felt like buddah i was truly ready to die.
when i woke up all i wanted to do was to go back to sleep and dream about this till the day i die.

tell me, anons, is love really like this in real life?

Quit being so bitter and move on already. Being young and naive are not requirements for love.

OP, it can be. Love means a lot of things to different people. For some it means saying "love you" at the end of a phone call before hanging up. For others it's fucking. Lots of people think signing a contract with the government will make it official. All very different relationships, but the word 'love' is a very general term these days. What you experienced is a glimpse of what legends and myths refer to as "true love." Say thanks to your brain for producing it spontaneously, but don't try to force it again. Let it motivate you to be a better person so you can induce that feeling in someone else. Hopefully they reciprocate.
