This was unlike anything I ever experienced! Imagine not being able to move one limb, not even your fingers, not even your toes. I couldn’t open my eyes. I was frozen. I used all my might, I couldn’t budge at all! It was an awful feeling.
I think it came from sleep deprivation/sleep interruption. My husband left early for work, and I remember asking him to turn off the fans before leaving. He claims he doesn’t remember me asking him this, so this could have been part of the dream. One of the fans has a slight clattering that make it sound like someone is walking around the house. I thought he turned it off, so when I heard that clattering, I actually thought someone was walking in the house. I wanted to investigate, but I couldn’t open my eyes to even see. I think this lasted for 20 minutes.
