    So, throughout the past few weeks I've been experiencing severe hypnagogia. Hypnagogia is basically when you have a dream but you're awake and conscious. I don't mean lucid dreaming, I mean experiencing a dream while you're literally awake. This has been an issue for me since elementary school, but it's been growing worse and more common.

    Anyways, this prompted my family and I to send me in for further psychiatric screening, them still being on edge since my Major Depressive Disorder diagnosis.

    It came up positive that in addition to having MDD, I also have Generalized Anxiety Disorder and Panic Disorder (After describing some of my episodes, I have been informed are actually panic attacks)

    I'm fucking scared honestly.

    I want to be normal and regular, but as months pass, it seems I'm getting further and further away from just that.

    I have the same thing actually, although I've never been officially diagnosed because my mum thinks mental health professionals are enablers and won't get me diagnosed. I suffer a version of this, manifested usually as sleep paralysis: I wake up and find myself unable to move while I have dreams and hallucinations (I assume that's basically what you have too since it's the most common I believe). Panic attacks and anxiety attacks are common for me as well.

    I can't tell you "oh here's how I fought and overcame it" or anything like that because I still struggle with it, but if you ever want to talk to someone who is going through something similar, you can always contact me.

    I'm gonna be blunt here. Don't aim to be normal. Nobody that I know of, whether it's friends, family, or just people I pass by, is normal.

    That's because the really is no normal or regular person. I know this all sounds clichéd, but for me, I've known that since I was born. I've fought/still fight with depression and anxiety, my sister has ADHD, and my mother's side of the family is mostly contained of people who have diabetes. Hell, my mother is paranoid in making sure I don't have diabetes. All that is just the tip of the iceberg.

    I may not be able to fully understand how you feel, and because of that, I can't exactly offer a solution, other than to not feel scared about being normal.

    Extra tidbit if it helps: I have sleep apnea, and I require a machine to make sure I don't have a chance to die in my sleep. Compared to me, I'd say you're much more normal.

    You're not alone, Ludwig. Look at all us weird people. I know it's scary, and trust me, i felt the same way back when I was diagnosed with something, except it took years for the diagnosis and people always thought what was wrong with me was done on purpose.

    But this is about you, not me. Don't worry about being normal. You're not going to be able to change who you are, but you can embrace it. And you can see past it. And you can refuse to let it stop you.

    You don't need to be normal and regular. What's the fun in that? It's fine to be a little eccentric, just don't feel bad about it.
