I fell asleep today around 2:00 pm.

I dreamed that I woke up face down, facing to the right. I sat up, but I couldn't turn my head foward. My head was very heavy; my arms were very heavy, etc. I couldn't get my bearings or wake up properly. Against great resistance from my neck I managed to turn my head, but it went all the way over to the left. I couldn't turn it back. I couldn't move. I dreamed that I woke up. Whew, it was just a dream.

When I woke up, the sheets had a pattern on them that didn't make sense. I managed to stand up somehow, but I couldn't move, and I fell face-down on the floor. The carpet was one that I threw away years ago when I moved out of a "bad neighborhood" in a decaying city. I again felt half-awake and disoriented. I wanted to look around but again, I couldn't turn my head. I had things to do: They were urgent. I had to get up. The cat needed to be fed and I had work to do. I couldn't get up.

I woke up again. Thank god that was just a dream, eh? I was on my bed. I couldn't move. I couldn't breathe. I was threatened by something, but I couldn't move.

Yeah, then I really did wake up.
