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.

Hah! When you hear animals galloping, don't look for zebras.

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.
