Where am I? Where am I supposed to be? What day is it? Am I supposed to be somewhere? I just want to lie here forever. Why am I so tired? Is it the weekend? Is it the end of the week?
How can it be Tuesday already?
“You’re not moving.”
I can’t. I’m not awake.
“You need to wake up then.”
I don’t want to. Nothing is real here. Nothing counts.
“I’m real. I’m here. I’m there. You’re listening to me.”
I can’t see you. Who are you?
“You really need to wake up now, [my name]. Wake up now!
I woke up.
I guess I was experiencing a less creepy version of sleep paralysis or maybe having a lucid dream. I could hear the voice whispering in my ear but I also recall standing next to someone and whispering in their ear so maybe I was talking to myself. It was very bizarre!
