I’m 20. I’ve had a lot of stress in my life the last two years with my parents and my grandpa dying. I have trouble concentrating and thinking which I know is from all the stress. I have trouble at night though. It’s like my mind goes all random and it goes to random thoughts and strange dreams. Then sometimes I have to snap myself out of the randomness. It’s like I’m half dreaming half asleep sometimes…like my mind is really tired and being sucked into this alternate reality at night. I think it’s affecting me a little more like when I wake up I have a few seconds of confusion and now while I’m awake it feels a little like I’m walking around in a dream. Just a little though. I mean I still have feelings, love for people/pets around me. I know I’m here, this is the world, but it seems dull. I know it has meaning and feelings but it’s like my mind is thinking otherwise –like dull, confused, it’s hard to explain. Does this have a name or explanation?
