Sense of time

Hello everyone.
When I woke up this morning I felt like I had lost the sense of time for a few seconds, about 3-4. I was in the bed and I was trying to remember what day is. Then I realized it was Wednesday and that's it. It's just the fact that I have been facing that problem since 3-4 years ago and it comes up random days for short periods, it stops and then it comes back again. When I'am awake everything's fine, it happens only when I wake up. Any advice/suggestion is appreciated! Thank you very much for your time!

Were you dreaming just before awakening?  If so, were you confused about time in your dream?

When we first wake up we all take a few seconds to become fully conscious of our surrounds and the day of the week could be in that class.  Some also take a little time to regain physical control of their body... sleep puts us in a state of paralysis.  Manly of us, myself include, are not aware of the paralysis, but I understand that is a normal body defense mechanism to prevent physical damage due to a dream inspired physical reaction.

If I'm right, this happens with anybody. I never know what day is it...
But if you really want to know that, try tu put an calendar next to your bed and risk the day before you sleep. This would resolve your problem.
