I know this shit sounds super weird and it is. Whenever I'm dreaming sometimes I'll hear slight noises like cars passing by my house etc but I have the hardest time waking up. Like my mind is telling me I want to get up but I can't. I find myself then screaming in my dream to get out of my dream and when I finally wake up I wake up to myself softly screaming. It's fucking weird. I'm too embarrassed to ask anyone that actually knows me.

It sounds like sleep paralysis.
A transitional state between being awake and asleep.
And your dreams could be affected by it.
