I once dreamed I was still asleep
and when I woke up, I was.

I have a recurring one where I dream I've woken up
and I've opened my eyes but I'm unable to move. Very distressing indeed, I feel wrecked afterwards.

That's a real thing
night paralysis. I get that sometimes.

Shit
It's not a dream?

I think, although I'm not sure
that you're awake before your brain realises you've woken up. But the feeling of not being able to move, impending doom, burglars etc, is all entirely consistent of sleep paralysis. It's a shit scary unpleasant experience.

True
I always panic that there's someone in the room just outside my field of vision and I can't turn my head to look at them and I can't make a sound either.

Stupid brain :(

Sleep paralysis. It's scary as holy fuck.
Basically, when you go to sleep, your brain paralyses your body so you don't act out your dreams and hurt yourself.

Sometimes you wake up before you become un-paralysed, and even though you're wide awake, you physically can't move a muscle or utter a sound.

What makes it worse is that it's accompanied by hallucinations where you can hear and see people in the room. Whenever I get it, I've learned not to panic anymore, just try to go back to sleep. After a few minutes I wake up normally anyway.
