The only problem is that nowadays he or she could very well enter a doctors office, tell what happened briefly, and walk out of the room with a prescription sheet of paper for 2 different anti-psychotics, 2 anti-depressants, and a bottle of anti-anxiety meds for good measure. It's obscene.
This all happens in the magical in-between twilight state of waking and sleep. It is normal, definitely not fodder for psychological treatment. Give me a break.
