i was falling asleep the other night and started into a dream i did not like. i don't remember the specifics but i wanted out.
this has happened before and on those occurrences where i realize it's a dream and try to force my way out it is like being inside of a bubble that is really, really difficult to burst. i can't force my body to move or eyes to open until i reach some sort of threshold and i'm awake. on one or two occasions i've gotten my eyes partially open only to fall back asleep.
on this occasion it seemed like i was flipping between awake and dream states rapidly and my head felt like tv channels switching on an old tv. that blip of the channel with auditory and visual static. it actually sort of hurt.
