    Hi,

    Strangely, I posted about a hypo dream I had back in June this year involving a spaceship. I put it down to the flashing lights I get when low whilst awake? With my eyes closed it triggered some pretty wild imagery.

    So.. This dream I had was set when humans were in the future free floating through space in some sort of massive plant based bio mechanical structure.. It was quite beautiful like a green laser show? (From a distance.)

    Then the cinematography swept in "Citizen Kane" like to reveal the detail.. Though that sort of sweeping landscape stuff with rousing music has been done to death on most "epics." Since...

    The only downside was this alien that seemed to be narrating the plot with a voice like the Emporor from Star Wars.
    The entity would sneak about & take us out one by one in our comfy branch beds, (whilst in "stasis") then go on to consume parts of the ship's structure. I felt like I was watching the "film," as another "space traveler" but then....?

    This thing grabbed my foot at one point & I awoke..

    3.3Mmol..

    At least the alien seemed to like his meat & 2 veg.

    Adam, I recognise what you describe especially when you mention ‘repeated fall’. In my post above, you’ll read I mention that was how the nightmares affected me too. I hated that feeling of dropping down and down and down, not knowing what was at the bottom. Never, ever did nightmares feel so real and terrifying.

    As Gaz-M mentions in the post above yours, it really is a terrible place to be and like him, I’m pleased I don’t get them any longer.

    When I was younger I also had similar happen to me but it was like lots of weird shapes where pushing me into a box and suffocating me, and I always had a headache like I had been hit on the head afterwards, although unsure if totally related to diabetes hypos because I also had the same thing when I had measles. In my late teenage/early twenties years I used to strip of my clothes and walk outside to rescue imaginary cats, lucky for me nothing bad every happened to me, and I don't think I ever bumped into anyone when having 3am hypos. Now I tend to think I am being poisoned by a strange person (my partner) when having a bad hypo and think that sweets or injection are to murder me. Im not a good hypo patient. Interesting to hear about you all too.

    Luckily it's a long time ago but I've thought I was flying around the bedroom ceiling during a hypo, I can only imagine it's like a weird trip after taking drugs, never done it but you hear stories!
