Hi all, I'm wondering if anyone else has experienced this. I have had a thing before where when I'm doing something boring or relaxing, usually reading, at work or a book, I'll get an irresistible urge to close my eyes and sleep. By irresistible I mean I can try to resist it, but the longer I do the harder it gets until I can't anymore and just close my eyes for a second. If I'm sitting at work say I will then jerk awake, I assume after only a few seconds as no-one around me seems to notice. When I awake, in my mind anyway, I have still kept working, usually solving something I was working on! And I can remember keeping working, but when I jolt awake and look down at my screen, the (awesome) stuff I just wrote isn't there, just a line of gobbledygook, I realise quickly what happened as I remember jerking awake, and see what I've done doesn't match my memory. This is something that hasn't happened for a few months, but did actually happen in the morning the other day. The reason it is troubling me so much now is that later in that same day I didn't do something I was meant to, but I can vividly remember doing it. So now I'm wondering if this is the cause of my false memory, but if that is the case I'm rather scared by it as that means I had the sleep thing happen without me noticing, which obviously raises the question of if this has happened before rolleyes Does anyone have any experience of anything like this?
