Invasion of the Dream Snatchers

Imagine lying in bed, finally in that elusive comfortable position, finally drifting off to sleep after an hour or more of squirming and readjusting. Dreams start floating, limbs release, and it’s so soft.

NOW, instead of falling asleep, you are jolted awake by the most intense, pinpricky itch sensation on your inner thigh that you’ve ever felt, and the power of the sensation makes your whole leg flex and twitch. You inhale sharply, your mind snaps back to alertness, and you’re back to square one. Except for the next 10 minutes, there will be companion itches and twitches.

That’s what I’m still dealing with.

I’m writing this because I need to remember.
