Thanks for sharing your wisdom.

I experience ‘dreams’ that are more like hallucinations in that I have trouble distinguishing the dream from reality and continue to ‘see’ elements from the dream, even after waking.

This might be a stranger in my bedroom, or animals crawling on the walls. In the harsh light of day I know these things aren’t really happening, but at night they seem so real and often threatening.

Is there a term for this? I sometimes physically respond (i.e. crawl out of bed to escape the threat) but it doesn’t seem to be classic sleepwalking or night terrors.
