Just want to tell you what happened to me last night.
This has never happened to me before and I'm over 50.
I realise there are sleep paralysis threads on ATS, but I wanted to start my own thread.
Ok I've not been sleeping soundly for a while now.
Last night me and the missus sat up late watchin a movie.
Went to bed about 2am
She fell asleep, I didn't. I seemed to lie awake for ages.
I don't remember going asleep at all and it seemed to be getting light outside.
So I got up and went to the toilet, then went to another room in the house and got into another bed. It was 07:15 on the clock.
I must have drifted off to sleep.
Next thing I know it's as if something has jumped onto me.
Size wise it was not an adult, either child size or like an animal.
I froze with fear.
I tried to get up to see what it was but I couldn't move.
Was like I was pinned down.
I could feel the creature holding me down and feeling around me.
I tried yelling for my wife, but no noise would come out of my mouth.
I was screaming but no noise.
Then it was as if I woke up, and my immediate thought was ... oh that was a dream.
But then I could feel the thing was still there.
This time I screamed again and I did manage to call out.
At that point the thing took off.
I froze in fear.
The clock was at 07:50
I didn't know what to do.
I didn't want to frighten my wife so I stayed put and calmed myself.
I must have gone off to sleep again, next thing I woke upon hearing my wife moving about.
It was late morning 11am.
I'm a big guy and I'm not easy frightened, but that was pretty scary.
Am I going nuts ?
