Night Terrors

So, last night I experienced what I think was a night terror.  I experienced one last year that I vaguely remember too, but I stayed awake for quite a while thinking about what happened that I can type about this now.

In my head, when it happened, I was already awake and saw something move across the floor and under the bed.  I jumped up and would probably have run out my room away from where I thought the ‘thing’ was had Dee-Anne not jumped up too and stopped me.

I was then focussed on a spot of light on the floor coming through a crack in the blinds, before I turned on the bedside light and slowly calmed down.  Replaying what I thought was real and what actually must have happened over in my head.

Not sure why this sudden night terror.  I had an early-ish night, I didn’t have too much to drink in Brisbane (AFF drinks) – 2 pints of stout, I had a meal, etc… so yeah.  Trying to keep more updated with my blog, and had something interesting to share!

It does appear to be related to “frontal lobe epilepsy”, but I’m not sure if that’s the one I have.  I’ll bring it up with my neurologist in May when I see him.

As an addendum, the last time I had one I ran out onto the landing.  I could have foreseeably fallen down the stairs, but didn’t, so it was good I had someone there to stop me on this occasion.
