But, this happens rarely and I really don't want to lucid dreams. My dreams for the most part are terrifying. I would have a hard time remaining calm and confident in the dream state.
i have that fear too sometimes and i have been doing this for the last five years. but eventually i realized there is no point in fear and i eventually got bored of being afraid i didnt overcome my fear i just got bored of it. ....but both lucid dreaming and astral projection both exist in a realm powered by thought and intent....and both can easily turn into someting terrifying it just takes one sneaky thought and it doesnt even have to be a long one all you have to do is think it and boom here comes that terrifying thing or experience.....
so if you have a hard time reaming emaining calm and confident in the dream state you will feel similar things during an astral projection. the sensations/surroundings in both are relatively similar. so you should atleast try to lucid dream first. personally I find lucid dreaming exceptionally easier to control then an astral projection. even when i was first starting out lucid dreaming felt easier to control.

Unfortunately that is an experience I am all too familiar with as well Mavie. I knew I was completely awake and I just wanted control of my limbs. I cannot say how much time had pass with the constant struggling and screaming but when I awoke it was a big relief.
