Dream-like states??
Well, I'm 21, I'm not diagnosed yet with ADD and I don't know if this's even related, but whenever I'm about to sleep (and this means I'm not yet asleep, my eyes are open and I can hear any surrounding sounds) it feels as if I'm dreaming with my eyes open, not daydreaming, it's something I can't control and it's kind of blurry as I don't remember them clearly when I gain my full consciousness! It's happening so frequently and since years!

Does anyone have any idea what this could be? Am I being too obsessive or this's something abnormal?? (Hint: I have OCD).

Thanks in advance..

   Ya, that is a bit unusual - I guess.  Never really run across it.  My first thought is a very simplistic  "close your eyes".  It seems to me like you are trying to fight the sleep.   Just relax and go with the flow.

I have had the same problem in the past. I was told by a psychologyst that it was problems with REM, a stage during sleep. I also have nightmares, so I take a blood pressure pill (but dont have high blood pressure) and it does the trick for both.

Sara, this also sounds like a REM stage me.  I think this is something you need to mention to your Dr. and follow through on as soon as you can.
