about 6 months ago I started experiencing sleep paralysis. The first time it happened i was frightened to death. I had no idea what it was, now it has happened about 7 times since then, I know what it is so its not as frightening, but recently I have started having really bad nightmares which consist of dreams inside dreams inside dreams and so on. I woke up screaming last night and had to set up and look around and had to make sure I was actually awake this time. These always happen right after my sleep paralysis. Im almost scared to go to sleep because im afriad of my dreams. They are so vivid and seem so real I cant tell the difference between dreams and reallife. each dream i wake up in bed, but im still dreaming?...help please?View Thread
