I was going to post about Lost and Doctor Who, but stuff came up so that will wait.

But I'm really quite freaked out right now.

I quite regularly get surges of electrical energy in my brain when I'm dropping off to sleep that cause me to see flashes of light and make my heart race. Kind of like a light bulb is clicking on next to me, in fact, there's normally a clicking sound which I assume is the light next to my bed settling itself down after being switched off. I guess that must be the trigger? I thought this kind of thing was normal, but everyone I tried to explain it to had no idea what I was talking about.

Then today I was napping (I'd been out late 3 nights in a row, so I was exhausted) and it happened again, only it was really prolonged, lasting for maybe a couple of minutes rather than a second as per usual. I was conscious of what was happening, but I couldn't open my eyes and one of my arms was curling in towards me involuntarily.

It scared me so much. I think it was probably a one-off thing brought on by tiredness or something, because I don't have a history of epilepsy or anything in my family. But then again, the flashes have been going on for years. If it happens again, I'll go and see a doctor for sure.

But what if I was just dreaming really vividly? I felt like I was awake, but maybe I wasn't?

All I really want to do is talk to my mum, but this isn't really the kind of thing you can discuss on the phone. And I love my flatmates to bits, but again this isn't something you could discuss with them. I'm not going home until after exams...

Sorry for such a depressing post, but I had to get it off my chest. I should probably document when these things happen, just in case.

I'm really sorry to hear that! I hope it turns out to be nothing serious and you'll be able to tell your mum soon!

Aww, thanks. I'm sure I'm just being a massive hypochondriac and I'm fine. It just shocked me because it was so random and unexpected.
