Waking up through the night to hallucinations. Sleep problems.
I'm having issues with hallucinating when I wake up in the middle of the night.
I'm 26 years old and I've been dealing with this since I was a child. Normal childhood, was not beaten as a child or molested, no traumatic experiences in my childhood to have kick started this.
This happens a few times a month. It doesn't matter if my day was stressful or normal. I can go to bed early or late.
I will wake up "not in a panic" fairly calmly to some kind of image(s). When I reach out to touch the image(s) it begins to fade. The image(s) differ or can be a familiar image from another hallucination in the past.
Examples of a few of the images that reoccur;
the room will be totally without light when I go to bed, the hallucination will be of the entire room flashing with a colored light ranging from red, blue or green.
This will last for about 30 seconds beginning to fade after 5 seconds until I am sitting in the complete and total dark again. I can see all of my furniture clearly and in its proper place. After the 3rd hallucination like that happened I decided to start sleeping with a light of some kind, closet, hall, bathroom. Now the other hallucination were still happening before and after I incorporated a low wattage light in my room at night.
I will wake up to green lush vibes flowing from the ac vent and growing rapidly down to the floor or down around furniture. When I reach out to touch the vines they sway away from me and begin to fade. This lasts about 30 seconds as well.
I wake up to sharp metal objects that recembles prongs or an antenna. And when the light hits it, it has a slight shine. It extends and/or retracts, length varies. I never read out to touch this one. I shift in my bed to avoid it. I usually turn a lamp on and it fades pretty quickly when I do.
I've seen my walls turn black and cracks start to appear with lite red light glowing through the cracks, resembling what I would imagine lava to look like after it has crusted over.
I've seen floweres grow out of the wall, starting as a tiny as a sprout and within seconds grown into a pretty flowers to just age to its wilt and dies. I watch the pettles fall down over my head, but they fade before ever touching me.
I know this all sounds insane but I would love to know if I am the only one. No one I know has ever done this. I get looks of worry from my friends as if they think I'm on drugs when I'm not. I do not take drugs, I smoked pot in my teen years and through those years I actually never hallucinated. This started as I said before when I was a child, long before I even knew about alcohol or drugs. I've never used anything other than pot for a two year period in my late teen years. I do not drink regularly, I take no medication daily. I probably adverse 2 tylenols a month. Someone please help me with this.
