Default my " dream " ?

If you had a regular dream , and it was basically continued from one session to another , and it occurred in the twilight of waking during early morning .

And you believed it had really happened , ( has been happening for weeks and I just finally realized it was a dream and not reality ).

would you say

1) stupidity

2) lucid dreaming

3) psychosis

4) just bad luck sleeping

any input welcome

I would say maybe a cross between two and three. When I got sick the best way I can describe the psychosis I experienced was one long dream that I was awake in and thought was completely real. I'm glad you can see the difference now. Things can get out of control when your brain malfunctions and your dream mode subconscious mind doesn't yield control when you wake.

Maybe look into "hypnopompic hallucination" to see if you think it's a fit?

I agree with fern and Wild Coyote, though it can't be certain that psychosis is involved. I believe that there can be a degree of delusional thinking that doesn't completely fit in that category. I'm referring to delusional thoughts caused by severe stress/anxiety and/or dissociative realm.
