Complex Nocturnal Hallucinations

“Complex nocturnal visual hallucinations are
vivid, dramatic, intricate visual hallucinations
occurring during sleep onset or awakenings at night …”
per JCSM; Journal of Clinical Sleep Medicine
(see Link at https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC5886448/ )

Tru here.

bad sleep last night; worst night in years.

1am woke from invaders in our home — as usual i can tell you all about them because these hallucinations are like extra-detailed dreams, with vivid colors, smells, and all the sensory details.

2am woke because those invaders had kidnapped me and taken me to a factory-type facility.

various gory installments between 2am and 5am.

5am woke after long dying process because they had been experimenting on my paralyzed body.
… but was still in that horrid environment for a long time after i woke.

.

Dont remember ever having this hard of a time truly transferring to waking reality.
Yes, it has lasted a little bit after waking before, with sights and smells overlapping waking reality,
… but not this long.

Praying for some good rest tonight.
