Before you got treated for sleep apnea, did you ever compound so many nights of waking up in flight or fight mode that your body eventually sent you into dissociation, making you feel like you don’t know where you are or who you’re sleeping next to?

I’ve found this really interesting correlation between viewing pornography and masturbating and post wake dissociation. I was sober for almost 2 months and I didn’t have any incidents upon waking up but recently I relapsed and everything has gone downhill just like it use to. Constant dissociation, hyper-awareness, increased anxiety. I know this doesn’t really have anything to do with sleep apnea, but I was wondering if this is something you guys deal with since you probably wake up in the middle of the night 100 times in fight or flight.
