I’m new here and just yesterday read a lot about LD, and today i had something similar where i was in the bathroom and for a second didn’t know if i was really awake, so i did a RC and i was.
Anyways last night i decided to try recording dreams since i normally do not remember dreams. Well i put a piece of paper beside my bed and a pen, i fell asleep while thinking about things as well as reminding myself to remember my dream. I started dreaming about pole vaulting, and then some girl accusing me of stealing the mat. I then realized it was a dream and woke up, i looked at the time and it was about 30 minutes after i fell asleep. I then tried to focus on counting while falling asleep (WILD approach i think). i noticed my limbs getting tingly and like i couldn’t really move them (didn’t try to much though) as well as blurred vision, so i closed my eyes and continued counting, and then realized i couldn’t focus on counting, i would skip numbers and lose my spot. I then started to dream about being in class on the computer, and i was clicking a button but what was supposed to happen wasn’t happening, i realized it was a dream and half woke up but was still in a state of tingly limbs not wanting to move. So i tried to dream, and caught myself in a dream again, so I looked around the room. But i noticed while i was trying to look at details it felt like i was making the details up myself. So i figure after i caught myself dreaming i came out of the dream state, and was just thinking about my dream and adding details that i thought might have been there, but not actually dreaming about it. Since after i found out it was a dream, it no longer felt like i was there, but watching it with the ability to change what was happening. And when i tried looking at details i found myself narrating what was in the room.
By definition i believe this counts as LD low level because i was dreaming and realized i was dreaming; however, as soon as i realized i was dreaming i think it stopped being a real dream, and more me just “thinking” because i didn’t feel involved in it. However this being the first night trying to have/remember dreams, I believe this was successful.
Any thoughts on this?
