I woke up the other night having to pee really bad. So I rolled out the bed on my side and hit the wall. said to myself, "can't go that way" and I rolled across the bed to the other side. then I was lost. I couldn't find the door or the light. I was feeling around and couldn't recognize where I was. I had to pee so bad I thought I was gonna pee right there in the middle of my room. Everyone laughs when I tell them this but I was so scared. I could not place myself and I didn't even think to scream for help. I was lost in my own room. :(

      I’m so sorry this happened- it sounds so frightening, to wake up this way. Are you on any antidepressants? They say it is very rare to hallucinate from SSRIs, but it happened to me. About 7 weeks on Zoloft I started to have the strangest hallucinations just before bedtime. Once I thought my room was filling with water, I ran out into the hallways screaming (in an apartment building in NYC). Another time I was panicked because I ‘didn’t lock the door in the floor’ and kept crawling around on the floor searching for it in a panic (never had a door there). This was years ago now, but it was so real, I was terrified and so, so confused. Went off Zoloft immediately and haven’t had any of these episodes since. My doc didn’t believe me at first because it’s less than 1% that this happens to, but there are millions on SSRIs - so this does happen frequently. Good luck 🙏

        @TrixNY wow that must have been frightening for you. When I was on zoloft I was baker acted because I just could not stop crying and I couldn't get out of bed. I dont like that med at all. As for this, it didn't cross my mind it could be a hallucination. I just thought I forgot where I was but you could be right. I think I'm only on SSRIs and it's only happened the one time which was 2-3 weeks ago. Ill mention it to my dr to see what she thinks.

          @Lucilou it’s definitely worth asking about. I haven’t taken an SSRI since, even though my doc keeps telling me ‘they’re all different’, it totally freaked me out! Let me know what your doc says. It’s so interesting to me, the things they don’t mention until you directly ask about it. They like to leave out mentioning the side effects. 😥
