something like that happens to me where i freeze up and have trouble breathing-- just have to remeber you're asleep and try to wake up. It usually happens only if i wake up and decide to fall back asleep. Often i'll dream that i'm in the exact possition i'm in, so that i can see the room as is, but when i try to move or look around i can't.
yes it's fucked up, my guess is that you are between sleep and wake cycles. When you dream your body becomes paralized (for the most part) so that the commands your brain makes while you're dreaming arn't translated into actual movements.
forgetting to breath is called sleep apnea you "wake up" but not all the the way to perfectly alert consciousness. it disrupts your sleeping though and can make you sleepy during the day.
You're scared cuz you're a pussy, and a Pats fan. Its ok buddy, the wet dreams will stop soon enough.
chemicals will ease the pain
