    Waking one’s self from night terrors.
    I’m a 60 year old man and still have night terrors. The other night while still asleep and dreaming I realized I needed to wake from a nightmare. I forced myself to yell out “Someone wake me up” over and over. How can we be asleep and dreaming and yet be conscious enough to call out for help?

    Since the age of 4, I have not been able to sleep naturally. I am 25 now.

    Therefore I have been dependent on sleeping pills. If I don’t take a sleeping pill, I can be up for an entire week.

    I have had brain scans, sleep studies, and seen psychologists, neurologists, sleep doctors, and psychiatrists. Also, I practice excellent sleep hygiene.

    I have only gotten a theory that it might have something to do with my brain stem. Someone told me that seven years ago.

    She told me that when I was about four years old, my sleep changed forever, and I was diagnosed with ADHD.

    No one has an answer for me! No one! I’m hoping someone at ASA will have an explanation for me. And even a treatment plan.

    I don’t want to be depending on sleeping pills for the rest of my life. I’m the only one in my family with this problem. It makes me depressed knowing that I might have to take sleeping pills for the rest of my life.

    Please, if you see this, message me.
